Image size likely I am not the only one commenting on it.

The sunrays are interesting. However, I think you should have waited a couple of minutes, to let the sun set further, Maybe you'd have lost the rays, but the sky wouldn't be as blown out, perhaps with a nich red hue instead.
A bit of fill flash might have been good.
But if you wanted to stick with this, you could have done more in PP (provided you have the SW, of course). Adding some contrast with Curves springs to mind (to reduce the haze), followed by some tweaking with Shadows and Highlights, perhaps.

Um...too bright and too small.

I like the lens flare, not too clear, but looks quite relaxing. Would consider a black and white

I think this would score better if you used the full size of 640 pixels at 72 dpi. There is a tutorial under Learn on how to prepare the photo for entry in a challenge. But that aside, I like the photo. The sun rays are great, and the hammock and setting are good symbols of success. I think with some post processing work to bring out the colors and contrast, this could be very effective.
