how did you post-process this? it looks rather unusual, but still cool. hopefully you didn't break any editing rules.

Basic Editing!?!

Be aware of the purple fringing your lens gives you at (I suppose) its minimum focal length. The rays of light are really nice though.

Very cool.

The extreme post-processing isn't all that effective on this shot.

Can't put my finger on it, but something looks odd about this image. Sun rays are pretty cool though.

I am really loving the dark coming down from the sky and the brilliant light. Looks somewhat surreal.

Looks like a bit too much editing went on here. The colors are unnatural, and the outline of the hills looks weird. I was just there a few weeks ago -- amazing place!

I think this is a great shot with the cloud cover and light shining thru, howeve I'm distracted by the un-natural colors and the generated definition.

very cool lighting but this is over the top process here - especially with the strange purple line along the horizon

Too much saturation. Colors blown out and oversharpened at the ridgeline.

Colors look unreal and oversaturated not sure what the attempt or goal was. Like the clouds

I'm not crazy about the processing at the bottom of your image, but I like the upper third.

Overexposed. Focus is off.
