This is the second pic in my short series of this particular sunset. This was heavily cropped to eliminate the less interesting area further away from the sun’s rays, unlike the previous posting where I wanted to retain the detail of the small, wispy clouds at the very top of the image. In the original of this photo, those small clouds had disappeared.
As well as being cropped, this pic has had the brightness and contrast adjusted for the landscape alone because it initially appeared too dark and lacking in colour.

Great work, Tony.
I love the sunrays between the clouds.
Dark green of the field is also gorgeous.

A wonderful scenery! I like especially the sharp horizon line, the already dark foregound, the colours of the sky and - of course - the sunrays. In summary: a great picture!

I'm pleased to see this one cropped down Tony!! To me is emphasises the rays and the darkness of the clouds. And I like how you've left the large tree on the left. Good job my friend,

A very moody capture!
Once in a while you're lucky to actually see the sunrays in the evening haze, and if your camera is around too something like this may come out!
Well composed and with balanced colours, personally I like the inclusion of the tree to the left...
If I were you I'd use a smaller signature though
Greenie will be forwarded! OK-
