    Love the dramatic sky framing the church.

    Wow, that is super dramatic! Beautiful and powerful image!

    My favourite in two ways. Firstly because it is a beautiful photograph and right on topic and secondly because you have used my old school motto "Luceat Lux Vestra"!

    Good capture, was there a chance to take further to the aligning the middle beam behind the main spire? Not sure if the trees add anything beneficial

    This is one of those shots where it all came together. The light streaming from behind the spire, the huge clouds and the wonderful silhouette. Great capture.

    Well someone knows how to use a sunset and silhouette in the same image without having me retch, which is unusual! I do think if there had been a little detail in the church the image might be even better but you'd need to get at least a multiple exposure for that. Nice sky.

    Your image could be easily on any given religion book or religious postcard - a truly stereotype but beautifully rendered. My congratulations and goes in my Top 3, great job!

    Great timing. A perfect example of back lighting as a dramatic influence. Perfect for the challenge. High in my TT's.

    Fortuitous moment with the sunbeams gives the Church silhouette extra impact with suggested meaning.

    Great silhouette, love the sunbeams, right on theme.

    The "god rays" add a striking effect, but the composition seems a little unbalanced: the lower right hand corner doesn't stand up to the dram in the rest of the scene.

    Beautiful light rays and silhouette. Good title. In my faves.

    The blacks are crushed and the sky is harshly cold and contrasty. I'd increase the shadows to bring back detail in the clouds and adjust color temp to bring back the warmth of the sunrise/sunset in the sky.

    Nice image and on theme. Timing was good to catch the light rays around the silhouette of the church. in my TT. You might try cropping out the right to eliminate the tree and center the highest steeple.
