I didn't do a whole lot to this one. It was cropped slightly, used curves and levels to brighten it then applied a gradient layer to add a little yellow color to the top. Selectively saturated the greens and used some dodging and burning on the tree trunks. I also used some lighting effects to brighten up the leaves on the center tree. A border was added and then flattened and saved for the web.

Nice capture, excellent rays of sun, but the green boarder takes away from the image. It is uneven and almost blends into the grass. In my opinion, losing it and maybe uping the constrast or blacks and this will be one to frame

Very pretty!

The border looks odd. Perhaps a different color, and an even thickness all round.

This lacks contrast - it's extremely flat.

let there be an ugly border! :)

Nice rays but I am not fond of the frame, a darker colour would be better, and even all around, not a larger bottom border. Photo looks a bit flat and washed out.

The frame doesnt compliment this shot IMHO and I wish it had more contrast and saturation. It is not often that you can capture nice sunrays like this but I feel you can do more with it in processing. 5

The frame detracts from the image. The image is interesting and potentially powerful but needs more contrast.

The image itself is beautiful, though a bit soft. The bordercolor really takes away from the moody impression, I had used a contrasting color

Nice capture of the quiet softness of light.

color saturation, contrast could have been better. Sharpness also looks too soft
