Are there any techniques or filters out there that will help enhance sun rays?
- I am thinking of wide landscape shots mainly, so i cannot really add haze or smoke unless it happened to be natural.
- But also for shots that do not involve such wide landscape shot were i could use a machine to capture the sun's rays. Are there particular types and densities of smoke/haze?

Any advice or experience would be great!

The shot on the top and bottom have fog working in the photographers favor, and the shot in the center is and HDR, so the multiple exposures were used to build the image. For what you want to do, the easiest thing would be to shoot early in the morning on a moist or humid day.

But do you think any filters could enhance on this at all?
Like a promist to help make the highlights and rays glow a touch?
