I was up early to capture the sunrise but the weather wasn't cooperating. I wanted to capture these beams of light breaking through the clouds (called Cloud Breaks, Crepuscular Rays or God Rays) but was having trouble with the exposure. Of my experiments, this is the thirteenth of thirteen.

I think it is fine!

Thanks Dan-Tuyet, it's unprocessed (I was hoping for hints).

Even looking at it now I have no ideas about processing this.

Nice light and contrast!

Thanks @b4light, I remember getting the exposure right took forever.

I had some plans for this picture, but in the end I left it unprocessed.

[Hmmm, thinks 'Retinex'...]
