Wonderful capture of the sunrays.

The flare adds to the effect, but the sun seems to be too blown out. I don't know what you could do to avoid this, perhaps dropping the levels just at the highlight level.

I've been seeing a lot of variations on this theme: holy statues in outdoor settings. I like the effect of the sun flare in this shot, though. It lends something to the picture as a whole.

I am not to fond of the lens flare for this image. It almost takes away too much detail. I personally would also like to see the subject more off center, or perhaps just crop more off the right side of the image.

Is that the natural flare of your lens or did you use an add on filter?

Nicely seen but IMO the statue is just that bit indistinct.

Now this is more than just a picture of a statue. Good use of light, good sky included, nice angle. Could have cropped a bot of the bottom part away.

IMO, God's grace seems a bit too obvious here. I'ts a very good idea, but thera are some possibilities to improve this shot. Untilt by 2°, reduce light and add contrast, then play with colors to give a better legibility on the statue.

the lens flare totally ruins this one for me

The sky is a bit noisy. Have you tried BW ? Good framing

All together, it's a really smart shot! I like the idea and the chose of subject a much! Maybe the sun is too glaring, did you use some filters? I guess not, probably would have helped (with the red-purple circles, too, but maybe also cancel the rainbow-alike sunstrokes I love a much). About composition, I would have left a bit more space between the sun and the statue, because it hurts my eyes a bit that I have to look so close to the glaring sun. I also would have chosen a different angle, to place the sun above her head.
