Default Little Ray of Sunshine

Not a great shot, shooting directly at the sun, but had to try and capture it. After some rain the sun came out, making it quite steamy outside. Looked out the back door and saw this.

Don't know why you say it isn't great, I think it is...been there, in the dark, when the sun came out, finally. Makes all the difference in the world. This photo shows it quite well. Could be a little toned down, but, love the way the light shadow play on the meadow, and just the scene comp in general.

Interesting shot Craig. Argee with the others about maybe a little PP and darken the image a little, might make the lower light areas pop.

Nice lighting effect craig, have to agree with the others that the picture does not pop, if only the camera could 'see' the same as our eyes.

Square One, very true. That was the problem. Even after some PP I couldn't get a good compromise between the contrast of the sky and the definition of the sun rays. In my mind it looked great, but my FZ40 isn't psychic....yet.
