You've caught the rays brilliantly, an improvement may have been to have included a little more tree in the foreground (using the sun as a spotlight).
Be very careful when photographing the sun, not only can it damage your eyes, but also the camera! Smile

Good advice from Karen.

Do you have editing software that enables you to enhance light? If possible, try reducing brightness and increasing contrast a bit on this, by say 10% each. That will make the rays stand out better against the shadows.

If you have Levels, have a close look at the histogram - the graph that shows the relative distribution of tones from true black on the left to white on the right. You will see that the graph will start to rise from the baseline a little way along the line, not at the left-hand end of it. That means that there are no blacks or really dark tones, and that's why the image looks a bit flat - it needs those blacks to give a sense of depth. Try moving the left hand slider rightwards a bit until it meets the point where the graph starts to rise. That will give you a better dynamic range. Just a few seconds work can make a big difference.
