These facts are simply irrelevant to RP, they are not important criteria for determining whether to accept a shot.

This shot has been done before, Tim Gobeil seems to be the guy, here's one but there are a number of them.

Given that, your shot is poorly lit (I wouldn't call it backlit myself, just blah overcast lighting) and doesn't have any other qualities that make the light special despite being weak.

Oh, here's one that is more like yours in terms of light, but the fogginess gives it a bit of "something" (along with a tighter look at the bridge) that yours does not have in my view.
