Tough image as shot.
As Ben indicated, the flare, placing diagonal stripes across the image from different angles, hurts the image and is hard to fix in post-processing.
The background is a bit busy and cluttered, including the fence.
Like Ben, I like the angle you chose. I would shoot less into the light, use a lens hood if you have one to reduce light entering the lens from an angle and causing flare. Choose a less busy background such as a field, a simple brick wall, some trees. And shoot fairly wide open (low f stop) to throw the background out of focus and highlight the subject.
Thanks, Scott! I agree and see the background and flares take away from the subject. Thanks for the tips on the low f stop setting as well!
