love this one i like the way you captured the rays of light coming through the clouds almost heavenly.

Love it i like the way the light comes out of the sky and you see the mountains and the water is very well and i also think the boat adds to it, the more you look around the image the more you see,

Keep it up

Really lovely composition and balance of light- well seen and well caught.

My only crit (you did ask!) is essentially that the little FZ8, darling though it is, just isn't capable of capturing the dynamic range you have here, which in a sense makes the image all the more remarkable. What is needed is an ND grad filter over the sky, which would have reduced the burn out and helped maintain cloud detail. Of course you would have to hand hold it with the FZ8, but I often do that even with an SLR.
