Taken driving toward the Caldecott Tunnel under perfect hazy conditions. A I moved up the hill, the sun would change position relative to the trees/ridgeline, and I took a few frames.

Uncropped, one tone curve for contrast, resized and sharpened. Cloned out one small smude on the windshield, and one bird which looked like another.

Well seen! I love the way the rays seem to pierce the haze. Nice use of negative space. The tilted horizon helps add to the surreal feeling of the image. I particularly like the way the shadow of the trees can be seen in the rays of the sun. The blue seems a bit offish and could possibly use a slight hue adjustment.
