Looks very fake .. i have never seen any sunrays like this in reality.
Photoshop?

The rays are real, I just enhanced the contrast in PS to emphasize them.
Reality is boring.

I feel that you enhanced them too much .. not natural anymore .. looks like an angel is coming down through the trees.

So many people, so many opinions.
I can only edit an image the way I like it. It would be foolish to edit it
the way you like it.
It all comes down to personal taste, though I respect yours.

Off course .. there are just so many pictures of sunrays to be found on DA wich are edited.
Some are just really overdone, No problem .. but would be nice to be honest about it.
All the best ..

Like I said, this is not an untouched image but the rays are real, though emphasized through
contrast adjustments.
I am always honest about that but like your comment on my other image, it becomes
a pointless discussion when people don't believe it.
either way, honest opinions are always appreciated on my side and I respect yours.


take care.

Thank you for explaining .. 
Believe me i want to believe that it is real, but i make lots of photo's of nature myself and never
get results like that. I only see tutorials on the web about creating realistic rays out of nothing with PS.
And when i raise the contrast it still doesn't look like this.

How do you capture rays like that? By using a tripod and a low shutterspeed?
I make photo's without tripod and use ISO 400 Aperture f/11 and shutterspeed 1/40. (this can vary a little of course)
Please tell me how to do this, i would really appreciate it.
