    You want to make the difference of light and shadow more visible?

    Put some particles in the air for the light to reflect off.

    Are you referring to an existing picture? You can either add your own sunrays, or use blending overlays.

    throw some dust/sand in the air for it to reflect off.

    I have found a pretty interesting site, have not try any of his tips yet, but going to this weekend. Maybe TS might be interested in this if he wanted to photograph sun-ray.

    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Deliberate lens flare? Cheaper lenses have better effect. No coating.. Other than that would be exposure settings

    Are you talking about post production or in production?

    For post, can lower gama, use multiply layer, darken, increase contrast.
