Tried to do this from scratch using reference pics. Could somebody please tell me how to get those rays of light properly. I just couldn't get it the way I wanted. Many thanks.

I like the scene. Good job but is there something bigger available?

nice work
i like both sides left and right
but the perspective in the midlle is too strong i think
also rays are at very low angle
usualy you wouldnt see them on bright background but just against the dark!
so they would be the strongest at the top of dark right side rock
and then this rock because it is so strongly back lit will throw heavy shadow on water surface
this for now
good luck

Thanks both for your comments. I'll try and put a link to some bigger version.
Yeah ,now I think about it you're right about the rays of light and the dark background. I was just so obsessed with them I just had to have a go at it :roll:
I'll rework the whole thing and see how it looks.
