Taken with the point and shoot Nikon, the sun rays are real and are not the product of a filter, I waited till the sun got to the position were the rays had to come through the tree branches, creating the effect.

Leonardo the rays are real, if I could I would upload the original 3 jpegs, anyway why should I lie?

In fact if you like I will upload all three one after the other for the next 3 days and you can check them out yourself, let me know if you want me to do this, I take exception to being called a liar.

alt, alt no one said you're a liar. I trust, but the effect seems surreal

This is why I waited for an hour for the sun to get to the correct point, without the rays the image is nothing,

However, I had seen the same effect the night before, and failed to get the right result, so I waited for my opportunity,

And the second time out of twenty images I took I got it right.

All told, the light bathing the field is incredible.

Nice colours and I like the look and texture of the grass field!

Congratulations on POTD Ron.. btw.. if you intend to post all three exposures you will tie up 3 days. Just ask for Leo's email and email all three to him at once so you can post other shots if you wish. Just a thought.
