If one were to describe this photo, he would call it "the sun in cloudy sky over a mountainous shore" and maybe he would mention the fence. I think what provides your drama here is that the "major elements" are so small: the sun is tiny, the shoreline is tucked into the bottom corner and silhouetted, the sea is just a shimmering snake of highlights on the bottom of the photo. The vast majority of the photo is devoted to sunlight streaming through a cloudscape. For me, it is a suggestion of how small we are, how small our concerns are, and that there is something vast all around us. This vastness in your photo is rather comforting: it is soft and infused with light. Your fence further enhances this idea: it reminds me of how my "self" is my boundary, and that it is so small compared to the world beyond it. Those fenceposts look a little like a city skyline, and further reminds me that no matter how big I draw my boundary, there is something bigger waiting beyond. oh... and to get back to the sun, that represents our dreams, our fears, our notions about what exists outside of us... and even that is small, even that is surrounded.

Very dramatic...I'd be very tempted to try a squarer crop;)

I love the details in the foreground and the sky, but as a whole it feels a bit unbalanced. Prehaps from a lower angle would have increased the shadowy foreground and brought the highlights a bit lower in the composition?
