This one is very nice. Very soft. This must have been taken early in the morning. The rays of light are incredible.

Love the light burst but the cast on the photo needs to be removed IMO.

Nice capture, shallower depth of field (if possible) might have helped it a bit more..

Excellent capture, but somewhere along the way you lost your contrast. I would like to see the darks really black.

Very washed out, needs plenty more contrast.

This is a very interesting photo. Very unusual catch.

are you using a star filter? I really like this photo but it is kind of hazy

Photoshop levels/curves on this one, please! :-)

Is this a scored filter, or just the lens flare? Weird to get this effect when you've obviously stopped down a bit, and it looks like you've got a four bladed apeture in the lens. If this isn't a PS effect it's a neat photo... My fav. so far.
