Can't go wrong with a shot like this. Spectacular nature with a great POV and wonderful sense of scale.

Very turbulent times. 7

You got that right! :-) The ground strikes are really cool, but the lightning above the clouds is just amazing. There might be a bit too much black on top, but otherwise this is a really gorgeous photo of an outstanding subject. Great job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It is, isn't? Love watching lightning....as dangerous as it is, it sure is a wonder of nature. Like the two story view you got here and you got a lot of strikes in one image. Guess it was a fairly long exposure...did you use a ND filter? More than one or something else....that and an IR are something I've been meaning to get. Maybe for the next camera. Great shot and good luck!

That is just incredible, wonderful shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/03/2005 02:41:37 PM
Very nice, I wanted to give this a higher score but felt it needed something other than just the lightning and cloud. Maybe something on the ground to give it a sense of scale. I realise that may be a difficulty, with storms you take what you can get ;-)

Still a great job, one of my top twenty picks. Good Luck

This is a seriously nice capture but I think you could have cropped out half of the top part of the sky
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2005 09:37:54 PM
Very nice - lightning above and below the cloud! Curious to know the time exposure you used here. 7

Spectacular.... Great title!!! - 10

09/01/2005 12:23:03 AM
I want to be able to capture that! The clouds in the middle of the shot are awesome!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2005 07:31:42 PM
this is lovely and striking. the upper third is unnessecary though. The clouds and the strikes are the focal point here. you still get a fine score from me.

you aint kiddin..9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2005 04:22:53 PM
Great pic. I think perhaps there is a tad too much negative space above, so I'm going to give it a 9 and not 10. Still, pretty awesome.

08/29/2005 03:49:21 PM
very cool picture, but there's no way I'd guess what the D&L are without the title, and I think that meeting this challenge requires a visual cue
08/29/2005 03:06:04 PM
