Couldn't sleep so thought the time was better spent taking some pictures of the sun rise. Thought that it was going to be a waste of time due to the clouds until this shot appeared.

All I have done is add an orange filter over the original, as mine hasn't arrived yet.

Greetings from the Critique Club

Amazing rays peeking from behind the clouds. It's always nice to be able to capture light like this.

As far as entering this in the free study, it is lacking a real subject. Yes, I get the subject is the clouds and sun, but there is not enough there to hold the voters attention. In a free study particularly you really need to be able to WOW the voters and sadly this does not really do that.

Not sure there is much you could have done from a technical point of view, I believe the main reason it didn't break a 5 was due to the subject matter.

Very nice sky shot... a touch of color might have helped a bit.
