In the eyes of the beholder

This is one of thousands of pictures shot while on the run at races.  I was not using a lens shade.  Sometimes, you cannot keep the sun behind you  because you and your subjects are on the move.  As was the case this past weekend, the sun was brightly shining behind this runner.  As I was editing for one of my photo shows, my first reaction was to delete the picture.   But just before clicking on the delete button, I looked at the image again.  Does it have any redeeming qualities?  What are the criteria for a creative picture versus simply a bad one?    Is it all in the eyes of the beholder?
