Not only I don't mind .... (actually it is a sample picture that comes with Photoshop!) .... but I think you are absolutely right with the comparison....You only see it when using the same picture!!
The fill flash technique never crossed my mind when I started working on this ... but I think it is a very good starting point ....
For what I've seen about 'backlit pictures' ... I think a slightly stronger saturation would hit the nail on the head in your version ....
You know? They remind me of the stained-glass windows in the usually dimly lit athmosphere of Churches .... They really catch your eye when the sun shines on them from the outside.... They are bright and their colours very, very vivid....
