The colors/greens are a little muted, but the shafts of light through the trees is a classic and wonderful scene. There is a strong mood present, although I think it could do with a little more contrast to bring it out a little more.

What a great job catching the mist off of the water!

Excellent capture -- I usually make shots like this a bit darker and contrasty, but that's definitely a matter of personal taste (and sometimes monitor adjustment).

My favorite of the challenge! I love the rays of light and the mood of the shot. Best of luck -- hope it'll be wearing a ribbon soon.

Great capture. Nice use of fog to create soft focus.

nice shot.

Very pretty! Those shafts of light are so nice. It may be just a bit too fuzzy, but I hardly care.

Stunning use of light. [10]

Shame about the duck.

Very tranquil and beautiful.

Very cool... love the sun streaks and reflections.

An excellent choice for this challenge. If you could have used a soft focus filter on this one it would have been even better. It would have been better that electronic soft focus filtering could not be applied for this challenge.

Great subject, good title. very nice soft beams of light. I'd crop a bit on the bottom and bring th land on the left closer if not touching the bottom edge. It gives those light beams (and your eyes) a solid destination and somehow feels better to me.

Overall this is a pleasant shot of what must have been quite dramatic lighting. I do think it looks a bit washed out and there is little in the shot to hold interest for long, other than the sunrays.

It's my kind of soft focus though, so well done for avoiding the net curtains or vaseline!

beautiful shot, lighting is perfect for the affect you achieved with the soft focus I like it. 9

Now that was an idea! Sure worked nice here. Good creative shooting. Love the light.

would have been nice to see a little more contrast (ie: shadows), which would have accentuated the sunlight a little more. 6
