This was harder than expected(Im still a newbie). I only had a 2 minute window to get the right light with best impact. Too early and the light was too bright and I'd never get any detail from the trees at the bottom. To late and sky became dull. I had to dodge the tress as they were too dark. But result is poor - lots of noise. The focus is not the best on the tress either. The two birds look like specs of dust at this small size.

Im really curious to see how this goes.

Very nice. I love the rays shining through the trees. I might play with the green a bit to up the saturation.

Beautiful sky and sunset. This really could've have been great if you could have made better use of the path. As it is it kind of draws they eye out of the frame instead of leading it inward. Still a good shot though.

a little too much sky, i would have liked it better if it was cropped more at the top
