I quickly took this photo whilst geocaching. I just love the beams of sunlight.

Love the shafts of light. Nice work.
Excellent manipulation, works well
You don't tell us what kind of manipulation's been carried out on this but whatever it was, I'd say it's worked extremely well.
I wouldn't change anything.
(I had to look up "geocaching!")
Would love to have the opportunity with one of these views I think it could have been a bit sharper But that happens on quick shots
This is nice. Why do we think there is manipulation? There is a slight lack of a crisp plane, but that is less important in this type of image. It would have been even nicer if those sunbeams had been falling directly on the two saplings.
Thank you very much for your kind comments.
Bren, the only adjustments made were a slight curves adjustment in photoshop to bring out the colours, nature provided the other elements.
Thank you all once again.
Welcome to EPZ Lee.
Its a nice image as it is. You can improve it with a few tweaks, which, depending on your comfort level with Photoshop can be easily done.
Remove the red bush bottom right; increase contrast, - it enhances the rays of light, crop some space from the bottom to place the focal tree on a third, and sharpen. All this contrinutes to giving the image more "punch"
Ive done this in a mod for your review.
This is beautiful, Lee, also quite magical, and the modification gives it even more punch. I'd just like to welcome you to the site and congratulate you on an excellent start to your portfolio.
And the mod takes it onto another level.
Considering that you were participating in another activity at the time you took this, I can't wait to see what you upload when you are concentrating on the job in hand
Willie, thank you very much for your advice. Your modification is stunning, I must get to grips with photoshop but I am learning, slowly.
Strokebloke, I fear that I have set myself up for a fall, I'll have so see what I can pull out of the bag.
Loving all of your portfolios and your words of advice.

With regard to Photoshop, there is really no other way.
Never be afraid to ask for help on here though.
