Don't overdo it; a backlit face will not look natural if it shines as if it were in full sun!
    I would agree. It does not look all that bad. If you bring it up a bit the sky will become very light, which in this case it will make the image stronger.

    Go ahead and look into it but you really don't have to.

    Doing the processing myself is fun and rewarding, for me, but it's not everybody's cup-of-tea, not even mine when the volume is high and there is a deadline. It's also a fair amount of effort.

    I do backlighting too and when I shoot a wedding I send out the film to Richard Photo Lab and they do a great job.

    The magic is in me telling them what I want and them listening, which RPL does well.
