    I don't think this is bad at all! I like the rays from the sun and I don't know if you intended to silhouette the landscape but it worked well - if it wasn't I think it would be distracting.

    A little over exposed in the center, but I doubt there was much you could to it (other than bump the exposure down, which would make everything else very dark). I'm a sucker for sunbursts like this, and I like it.

    I really like this. I love the silhouette of the foreground -- it looks neat. The clouds & rays are fantastic!

    Agree with the rest, very nice shot.

    Great shot!!! Did you use a blue filter or a cooling filter in PS or on the camera?

    I used PS to sharpen the colours but apart from that it's not really been modified.

    Hiya Charli and welcome to ThePhotoForum! :D


    This is a nice photo and the rays of the sun are so clearly to be seen. Good eye to spot this, good technique to capture it! You are on your way! :D

    Oooh, nice shot of some crepuscular rays! It is a little bright, but you're shooting directly into the sun, so I suppose that's to be expected. :lol:

    Raises an interesting question actually. I have shot into the sun before with a digital camera but how are you supposed to do it with an SLR or D-SLR as it is recommended you don't look at the sun through the viewfinder...?
