    Nice concept... It looks like you needed some type of additional lighting though to give better illumination...

    using the lens flare in PS always creates those annoying flare spots. I would make a layer and darken you and your son and then put that over a smoother less processed original layer. Crop out the "sun" or clone out.

    #3 is the best, but i would have gotten lower so that more of your son was in the blue area. i think that would have made him pop more-he kinda blends in with the ground. the others are way too dark, I can harldy find the subject.

    I like #3 the best also. But the sky is too dark in all of them.. that's why you're not getting the back-lit silhouette effect. Check out this guy on flickr, he has a lot of nice shots: Flickr: disgruntledbaker1's Photostream
