Thanks! I decided to baptize them "God rays" and not crepuscular rays for the simple reason that this was next to the Dead Sea which is the heart of almost all the stories in the Bible (btw, i happen to be an atheist, no religious promotion intended)

Neat!

 

Anticrepuscular rays are pretty rare and neat too.

I wouldn't do that, it's a nice image, and hell, if it annoys Drac, all the better :p

I can't edit my post anymore.. oh well. It's there anyway. lol.

Sorted that for you.

I'm feeling a little under the weather so I may not, but I found an excuse to possibly do something I've been wanting to do for a while. It's kinda got a light element to it so hopefully I will do it tonight.

I would like to post, but I don't have much during the week (due to work) and weekends are also pretty busy. Even though I carry my camera with me, I don't seem to find any motives or anything related to "light" during my commuting. Maybe this weekend or the next...

This was focusing on a dark theme and having the car as the subject.  No depth of field anything Just straight in the middle with it popping as much as possible.
It may be too dark for some of you, but as long as you can see the small trees in the woods on each side then you should be good to go.

It's tricky to post this style because a lot of people doesnt have a monitor that gives the same resultat as mine.

 

Here it is in the spoiler (bigger):
