Well, wow!

Thanks for the Blue everyone!

Took this image while I was out on one of my bike rides... This view point is looking north from the Port of Miami Bridge.

In response to the questions about a tripod - hehe, of course I had a tripod, I can haul a ridiculous amount of stuff on my new cruiser! :)

Congratulations on your well earned blue, Cory. That is a magnificent capture. You are brave to be out on your bike (or just out) in an electrical storm.

Congratulations on your blue ribbon Cory. Interesting colors.

How long was the exposure? "Taken while out on a bike ride" suggests you didn't use a tripod, did you rest the camera on a bridge railing or something like that?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2011 12:06:39 PM
Outstanding image. Congratulations on the blue. Very cool picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/08/2011 09:41:54 AM
Congrats on your new blue! Your biking adventures are paying off. You would not have gotten this if you had been driving a car. It's great that the Florida lightning cooperated too.

Wow. That is an eye grabber! IMO, I'd rather a slightly darker sky/water?

Nice lighting capture. Personally I would have cropped out some of the water at the bottom.

Impressive image. Lots to like here.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2011 10:55:32 AM
Excellent timing. I like the purple parts of the bridge, that color adds a little extra something to the image.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2011 06:42:03 AM
great image and capture!! I feel it would work even better as a panorama, there's too much negative space on bottom...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2011 12:50:42 AM
Great capture
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/01/2011 12:21:03 AM
Great capture! I would have been tempted to crop below to bridge just to give more attention to the lightning strike
