Dag John,
heel mooi licht dat in stralen door deze majestueuZe boom heen breekt. De eenzame wandelaar schijnt het niet op te merken.
Groeten Gerrit

Hi John
Just perfect !

Beautiful light and nice autumnal mood in this one, John. Good effect with the sun rays emerging from behind the tall tree at the right, and pleasant rendition of the seasonal colors.

Bonjour John
les rayons de lumières sont superbes et l'ambiance apportée est magnifique. Une belle gestiond e cette lumière. Bravo

Hi John, this seems to have been taken in good light athmosphere, why shoot it at Iso 400? i'm refering it because in the shadows there's visible noise. The composition is very good but you have already used us to it.

Well done.

Hi John, The rays peeking from the tree is quite attractive. Good effect, it almost seems like a divine intervention. Best regards. Danilo

Hi John,

A beautiful management of the luminosity on this photograph, this rain of light is very pleasant and gives to the image a particular atmosphere. A pretty work, cheer.

With my all friendships,


Hello John -

Yes, a lovely morning. I like the composition with the sun rays lighting up the shadows, producing the glow of the fall color, and the inclusion of the man strolling down the path. The human element really makes this image stand out and raises it above just a nice fall image. Well done!

Thank you for sharing

Hi John,
The sunburst rays of the sun really give this shot much sizzle and charm. I like the varying tones of green here. A minor irritant is the blandness of the sky, but you have limited the effect of that by restricting the proportion there and concentrated on this parklike scene. The main tree is resplendent in the glory of a crisp autumn day. Well done.

Olá John, spectacular finding on your archives. This capture of the beams of light is incredible. I feel a magic moment happening here. Very impressive, indeed. Congratulations!

Hello John,

Tu as réussi un excellent effet de contre-jour dans les branches de cet arbre. Il semble éclairer ce parc et cette personne assise sur ce banc ! Dans tout les cas, un endroit ou il ferait bon passer quelques heures de repos !
Bien vu !



Une photo étonnante, John, avec ces rayons qui passent à travers l'arbre. Les conditions de lumière sont limites puisqu'elle vient de face. Mais le cliché est très réussi.

mooie straling John. Iwas er vandaag ook op uit om eens wat moois te fotograferen, maar meestal valt dat dan een beetje tegen. Ik kan beter een beetje in mijn eigen buurt blijven. goed positie genomen hier John,misschien dat een klein beetje contrast hier mooi had geweest maar dat is persoonlijk, in ieder geval een goede pov en een mooi frame, ook teunie vond hem mooi maar ze mag U niet meer belonen.
groet Jaap

Hallo John,
Erg mooie foto met de zonnestralen die zo duidelijk afgetekend door de boom komen. De combinatie met de herfstkleuren en het misschien iets mistige geeft het geheel een ontspannen sfeer. Goede keuze van het standpunt.

Hi John,
Perfect execution of this photo, with a great capture of the Sun behind the great tree, and offering a beautiful spectacle with his beams on having penetrated between the branches and creating a fantastic effect of light and shades.

Bonjour, mon ami John,
Il existe des moments dans la nature qui possède un charme fou, mais dont la difficulté photographique est extrême.
Ces rais de lumière traversant l'arbre sont de toute beauté.
Je suis un inconditionnel de ce genre de prise de vue.

Goedenavond John,
Die zonnestralen geven een geweldig effect. Het is net alsof de takken van de boom het licht gelijkmatig over het gras verspreiden. De kleuren van de bomen zijn ook zeer mooi en de eenzame wandelaar is een leuke toevoeging. Mooi werk!

Hi John, those sunrays are glorious and overwhelming so definitely a special shot to enjoy, maybe I would have liked to see a little more of the sunrays all the way on the right side, cheers :) Daniel

Hello John
A superb stereotype of these sunbeams deviated by the tree.
A very pretty table.
In a friendly way

Hi John,

Impressive landscape and great change of lights, the Sun rays cross the tree and create a unique and very interesting atmosphere, it seems a Divine appearance. Good work.

Dag John. Ik ben blij dat je door je archieven gaat en dit juweeltje hebt opgedoken. Het heeft een religieuze uitstraling, deze foto. Het doet me denken aan Mozes en de struik... Prachtig hoe die zonne stralen als het ware uit die boom komen.

Yeees I believe it is a real image!
You made a wonderful light play, it works so effective.
It is sooo good composed, also with the man by walking there.

hi john
You tried and made a success a difficult situation and you won your challenge against the sun which is filtered by the tree making lovely rays.

une photo qui mérite détour et critique, ici, les rayons du soleil se propagent bien en étoile autour de l'arbre.
Le contre jour est délicat et le surexposition du ciel est presque inévitable.
Jolie réalisation.
Bien à toi.

very beautiful photograph,
framing is perfect and the sunbeam which through the branches are splendid.

Hi John,
This is a great shot with very nice color and composition.
I love the rays from the sunrise.

I tried similar shots like this in Myanmar with sunrays,a tree and smoke from a fire,but without good results.
You managed the difficult lightconditions very well and I like the contrast between the pale and bright green tones and of course the good visible sunrays.

Best wishes,

You do like these shots of the sun's rays streaming through the trees, John, but you execute them well, so I don't tire of seeing them. But I doubt you will ever surpass your 'Misty Morning in November' shot - that was just superb and one of the best of its genre on TE. Cheers . . . David

Amazing impression. What a beautiful lights and fabled atmosphere! I like the bright details and the full of life spectacle. Very fine work, thank you

Hello John,

You have captured a magnificent sunburst effect, with your characteristic aesthetic intuition and technical prowess. The colors, exposure, light, perspective are typical John Maenhout.

Incidentally, I emailed you the photo of August Mussin's late 19th century painting of Ostend.

Very nice and clever composition because the use of the light, the you managed it, is very nice.
The tree is just in the main point of the light and thanks to it we can see the whole scene with that walking man in the bottom part.

Well done.

Once again we can't help being admirative looking at the way you deal with the light in your compositions. This is specially true for this one which might be one of your masterpieces. The composition is perfectly balance too and it's a real pleasure letting our eyes follwing the sunbeams...
Thanks for sharing.

Special morning light John, not always easy to do, great to have the man to add life. A bird in the forground would be awesome, anyway...well seen !

Hi John,
absolutely stunning to see this sunrays breaking through the tree and cutting slices into the fog. That single person walking by gives a good balance in your composition.

beautifull rays of light behind the tree.
This picture is successful and it's a rare vision.
Well done

Hi John,
stripes of light through trees, clouds or what else always attract me. Thanks for those, John. The sun, hidden by the tree, starting to burn or still burning (I think the last one) and sending spots of light to the leaves and the gras is a wonderful theme.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Hi John,

very beautiful capture of the sun through the branches.
I tried to make a lot of similar pictures in a park near my office, this is the effect I would like to obtain.



It is amazing but I do not remember ever having the chance of a view like this. It looks like a curtain which can be flicked and turned out. It is a wonderful picture. Well done.

Hi John
Diffused sun rays though tree make a lovely scene.the bench and two persons are nice addition.TFS

Hi John,
I think it's a amazing shot. All these rays peeking from the tree is quite fantastic effect.

Good job

Hallo John, deze had ik om de een of andere redenover het hoofd gezien. Hij is heeeeeel eerrrgggg mooooiiiii!!! :~))! De zonnestralen door het gebladerte geven een remonstrans-achtig effectzodat men de indruk krijgt zich in een kathedraal van licht te bevinden. (Ik word er zowaar poëtisch van).

Have a nice and successful day, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

Hello John,
Once again, you have managed to catch the rays of the sun through the tree branches. It's a lovely photo, TFS!
Happy 2015,
