    Took this one today. I like it this way, but if anyone can help me to really bring out the sunbeams...that would be great. OTE
    Oh and this is the harbor in Brooklyn. Hope this is in the right place: we'll call it 'city landscape'...

    Hey Dan, thank you! Yeah, I like the rays in your picture better, but it gets too dark for my taste. Do you think there's a way to have both: less dark and better beams?

    It's so beautiful. I always loved looking at the sun shining like that. I remember once in like 6th grade I saw it do that through a tree, and it looked so heavenly, I was nearly convicned. =P

    Well, I like this one very much - and I sometimes like a bit of a PS challenge (I cannot do anything "big" in PS, that's when I have to ask the real whizzes for help but...) so I tried ... do you like my version?

    I too like this shot. The rays really do look heavenly.

    I like Corinna's play..it brings out the rays more,and give the photo a nice moody feeling. :)

    Thanks for the C&C. And LaFoto, yes this is what I was looking for. The beams look better and indeed it gives the right mood. Thanks!
