This photo was taken tonight on my way home from work. I was hoping to catch the rays and did.

I took three shots. This one at f29, 1/40 another at f22, 1/40, third at f20, 1/25 all on manual. Only posting this one to follow rules. The sun was setting quickly and I didn't have much time to think through the settings. Shot at what it was set at from earlier shots and adjusted down as took more.

Does it have any merit?

Thanks for any input.

the rays create a cool effect.

im not sure if they dominate the frame enough. Maybe some ps to boost em or maybe a tighter crop. Not sure

Thanks, Ken.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"How about this. I actually did both of your suggestions. I went into levels and adjusted the right lever to just where the histogram had activity. And, then moved the middle one a little to the left to brighten it up a little.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Also, cropped the original to 8 x 10 to the fullest and did another crop of that to 8 x 10 size as I didn't think it was enough. It also put the sun a little off center.
