Mate the shot is great, I would say the flare makes it. Flare isn't always bad
if you can frame the shot right and use the flare to accent a subject or give some added mood to the shot
sometimes those high contrast shots with no flare can look a little flat and lifeless IMO
I really think the flare works well in the shot, It's subtle and doesn't cause a distraction over the subject but provides more of an accent to it

I agree with the others... This shot is great––flare or no flare!

Hey I like the atmosphere with flare in this kind of environment. Without flare it will be just like a plain shoot (of course its subjective but I like it).

Nice photo!

Flare can be good or bad.

it can ruin a shot. But it can also result in a special, one-of-a-kind shot that has the sort of atmosphere and mystery that results from allowing your environment to be a participant in the composition.

The element of chance can be powerful.
