Adding Light rays

I wanted to add an extra touch to the scene. I was looking through some of the effects and I came across Light Rays. When I clicked on it a brown circular pivot appear on the time lapse composition. Every time I clicked on the pivot, it moved the light rays. This gave me more freedom to move the light rays in different directions, rather than changing the values to make the pivot move.

After I had rendered the video I was actually really pleased with final result of the rays as they lightly spill onto the top composition, which makes it look like its shining down on the beach.
