A bit blurry, I think you needed to hold the camera steady.

Comment by RazorsEdge:
Wide-field astro is tough; expecially when there is illumination present -you need a long enough exposure to get the stars, but not too long that any light polution gets overexposed. IMO-next itme point the camera directly at the north star so you get at least one non-moving star, or piggyback mount thte camera on a scope that can track the sky so you get nice bright circular stars of all brightnesses and tons of detail.

Also, the contest rules would have allowed you to edit out the hot/cold (red/blue)pixels in the photo. 4

Comment by glad2badad:
Certainly have some spots. :D I wish the exposure time was either longer or shorter. The short motion trails of the stars make it look blurry. Longer would show intentional, shorter would be cooler (if possible). The red sky is nice as a background. Good luck in the challenge.

Hi from the Critique Club!

First of all, I've never attempted to photograph lightning. I have little idea how to go about it, so I admire anyone that does.

The drama in your image comes from that gorgeous red/orange of the sky and the lightning against it.
I love the fainter lightning streaks, like echoes of the main ones, that you managed to capture.
The huge black cloud is dramatic too; it's imposing and sinister. It gives me a feeling of claustrophobia and nearly dominates the whole image. Perhaps it's a little too dominating for some people?

Because the foreground and cloud are similar in colour it tends to make the image look flat and without depth. Something in the foreground with more definition might have helped.

I find the electricity wires a little distracting. Without the pylons they are attached to they seem out of context. But lightning won't wait for photographers to find the optimum place from which to shoot;)

The focus is slightly off but it's still a great capture of a unique moment in time.

The dark shadow at the top of the picture is a little bit distracting. Great colour in this shot.

Comment by JBHale:
I love and respect lightning shots, but the quality on this one seems too poor. Plus, the lines going across really distract from the lightning bolts.
