Well, this kind of image, besides the fact that it may have been seen already a lot of times (sun+rays of light+ city), is a pretty difficult exercice.

First of all i'd like to say there is 3 major points that makes this image beautiful.
- The soft color tones, green/gray almost ocre, gives a feeling of intemporality, it could be a view of a distant, super industrial, future, or a 1900 picture, the beginning of all the modern society.
- The high contrast, between sky and ground, creates this effect almost mystic. Like the light can't reach the ground. Just like the earth absorb light and dont show it. It could be a strong concept of the current society of consuming the energies of the planet.
I love how the contrast creates the glow on top of some building depicted below.
- the last point and not the weakest, is the composition. Of course it responds to the rule of third (criticized by many photographers, but undeniably useful to create balanced images). And of course it's the division between dark ground, middle sun rays, and clouds torn apart by the sun.
But the most interesting thing is that this could be seen as a "mise en abîme"... in which the darkness of the upper clouds could be the ground itself.
I know it may be just a subjective vision, but....

this photo is splendid, strong, has everything someone like me (mystic, sci fi fan, adorer of nature at work) could want.

A really great work.
