You give us no technical details. There is an idea there, but you have technical issues. There is a heavy green/cyan colour cast resulting from a degree of flare and over exposure and nothing is very sharp. You needed a tripod and careful exposure initially, but I'm not sure adding the sunbeams has improved the image.
Hi, and welcome to the Critique Gallery.
Light filtering in among trees is a wonderful subject. And it does need those strong verticals. But none of the trees looks sharp here. I think you were focusing on the sloping tree on the left, but it's almost hidden.
Beams of light only work if they are all coming from the same source, and here you have diagonal beams at the top plus radial beams from lower down. The result is a bit of a mish-mash.
The dominant colours seem to be magenta/purple and turquoise/green. Looking at your portfolio I saw other examples of this, I wonder if it is deliberate? It doesn't work for me, it's a distraction.
Crop off the diagonal beams at the top, get rid of the colour and sharpen this, and I think it would be a more involving, and mysterious, image. I'll give it a go. If I can get anything that I am satisfied with a Modification will appear under the Modifications button above - click on the thumbnail.
