Taken this morning... Definitely not the best rays I've ever seen, but it's a start I guess ;)

Post-processing: I upped the contrast, darkened the edges a bit and reduced the noise.
Location: Leuvenum, the Netherlands.


My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…

For rays to be visible there needs to be mist or something of a haze, the last was there when I took this photo :)

This one is really beautiful. I think stronger rays would have overwhelmed the composition. 

Re the watermarks - The problem with watermarking a low res image is that they are so easy to remove because you don't have to be so careful in matching textures. (Less than 5 minutes for all of them in this case). Came across an interesting article about image copyright recently -  www.ianplant.com/blog/2013/07/…

I've never seen this many watermarks.. I looked through your other pictures and I'm hoping this is a past mistake, because you're work is really captivating. Putting your name into it this many times though makes it so that just when someone is strongly held by your image, they jump back to this instance because of text. It really kills the this picture for me...
