Very nice photo 9pt

I think this would look great in a vertical format as well.
04/20/2003 09:34:16 AM
Nicely done. The clarity of the electric cloud contrasts well against the soft focus and color of the nearer clouds
04/19/2003 03:36:49 PM
Just wondering if you blurred the sky a bit?? Anyways, I think it's an amazing shot.

nice capture :) I would love to try something like this myself if I could find a good vantage point for it... i live in hilly terrain :) - setzler

I think this picture was taken for the wrong challenge. This should be in the Alien challenge. Noce shot. A rare opportunity for a great picture.

Nice shot! I like the way the lightning is rippling through the clouds. Not overexposed either. Well done.
04/17/2003 11:37:52 PM
whoa! Nice capture! I even like that little streak near centre of the horizon.
04/17/2003 08:00:22 PM
Wow wow wow. Freaking cool!!!! This is clearly the winner to me. I still have a 100 to go but i cant see any beating this. 10!!!

Very nice image. This looks very creative and something different from what i have seen before. Good job.
04/16/2003 10:53:21 PM
awesome timing. i like the lit up cloud over the city. i commend you as a fine artist
04/16/2003 09:25:41 PM
Fantastic storm shot! I love how the lightning has highlighted the clouds in the distance. City lights take away from the overall effect, in my opinion, but not enough to cause serious problems with the shot. --9

great shoot...i like the composition
04/16/2003 07:02:09 AM
Is it really one image or two re-touched together?
04/16/2003 06:32:43 AM
Nice imagery, here. Looks great.
04/15/2003 11:50:43 PM
Nothing to say...except WOW. Ok, wait, that's too cliche. "HOLY CRAP"
04/15/2003 10:04:40 PM
good color
04/15/2003 08:54:31 PM
nice image, i really like the way the clouds are depicted
04/15/2003 06:41:58 PM
Whoa!!! Did you really catch that? What a great effect! I can tell the exposure was a perhaps a bit long because some of the lights are a bit over exposed but DEFINITELY worth it to get such a shot.
04/15/2003 02:59:27 PM
Great night shot. City lights a little over cooked but the sky is perfect.9
04/15/2003 12:31:17 PM
Wild. Did you use a filter?
04/15/2003 10:24:56 AM
awesome shot
04/15/2003 10:06:44 AM
Very nice!
04/15/2003 08:05:45 AM
Awesome capture. One of the nicer cloud pics this week. In my top 10 this week. -danny

this is amazing....
04/14/2003 11:31:03 PM
Eerie image. Nicely done.
04/14/2003 10:52:40 PM
That\'s sweeeet! You found a jewel of a shot here, and the post processing is brilliant - really gives the pic PUNCH. 9.
04/14/2003 10:32:01 PM
The bright lights of the city kind of took away from the drama in the sky. Nice photo otherwise.
04/14/2003 03:12:09 PM
Heavens! What a capture....what great timing. Love it.

Wow! (I mean, that's what I actually said out loud when I saw your photo!)

I hope this wins, and I have one entered! :)
04/14/2003 12:02:31 PM
Great shot, my pick for the winner. (how did you do that?)
04/14/2003 09:34:52 AM
Wow wild! What an excellent shot. The plane is the only flaw I see really but no drop in quality for me - 10.
04/14/2003 07:25:18 AM
No wonder there is a God of Thunder.
04/14/2003 07:22:03 AM
Malevolent-looking skies! Great capture - the town below looks like it\'s about to be struck from the heavens! Very eye-catching shot. 8.
04/14/2003 05:57:33 AM
fabulous effect, but the composition distacts me. Would ove to see this cropped more closely to the lightning clouds - wouldn't lose those city-lit clouds (which are also interesting) completely. Way better than the other lightning shot (so far) though. The burnt out city lights are a shame too,
04/14/2003 05:15:11 AM
04/14/2003 01:39:25 AM
Very interesting!! Too bad the lights of the city are so bright. It takes away from the lightening.
04/14/2003 12:37:19 AM
Wow, what a sky. Very nicely captured.
