    Wonderful.
    When I was little, I used to think at the sight of the sun bursting through the clouds like this that The Dear God was touching the Earth with his hand. ;)

    I grew up thinking it was Gods peep hole to see through the clouds.:)

    Beautiful capture of the rays. I've never managed to photograph them so vividly. Good job.

    i know its already been said, but thats an awesome shot. i love storms too, but have never been able to catch a shot of the sun after a storm. most of the storms weve gotten here recently were at night, and living in the middle of the city makes it hard to get shots like that.

    very nice!

    I don't really like it. It's not visually appealing to me, probly cause:
    - land is completely underexposed and there is not enough of it to make nice thirds or anything
    - the clouds aren't really that special
    - the ray of light is some trivial little thing in the background

    Luke, your comment is a bit negative. It's fine that you don't like the photo, but you could be a little nicer. The rays are not trivial, they are the subject. The ground is not the subject so therefore we don't need to see it in detail, which I think the darkness addes to the photo. And the clouds are far from nothing special. They have a nice glow.

    Nice shot.

    Fair enough, you like the shot.
    But what i said was very restrained. I simply said i didn't like it, and gave reasons why. People are always saying "go hard, i can take it" and then everyone gives nice little comments with reasons how they like it, when what most people think is something like: "it's an out of focus picture of a hubcap... wtf"
    I happen to be respectuful enough to actually give reasons, technical ones, why i dont like it. I could just say what i was thinking, and it's inane comments about why im being to negative that will push me over the edge into blatantly insulting something if i think it's crap.
