Nice woods but pale. I like the rays from this angle. This is a nice photo. Darker would keep the focus on the rays.

Beautiful sunlight capture, would have liked to have seen a touch more green in the branches though.

This has great potential. I think I'd work on curves and contrast so that it really POPs out at you. I love the rays through the trees. 7

I love the rays through the trees.. just wish they weren't so smokey looking.. I kinda dig the detail that seems lost behind the haze... Great pic tho.. must have been amazing to see.

I like the lighting affect and how it shines through the branches.
09/07/2005 12:59:16 PM
Beautiful shot. Would love to see a bit more color in it though. Still, very strong entry.

I know these groves are hard to shot in. I do like rays and these are some nice ones.

Great composition & imagery. The sunlight spilling in was a wonderful catch. Great Job.
