I took this tonight during an amazing electrical storm that blew me away. I used my old 350d, JUST in case, and because it has the wireless remote. It wasn't raining and I couldnt have asked for better conditions. RAW conversion and color correction in canon photo pro.

that is some serious lightning and a very awesome capture. I have to agree though with some of the comments below that the lightning can't completely carry the picture. The silhouette of the trees and mast there just make the pic look rather snapshot-ish rather than deliberately arranged, but i can't fault you for that b/c its lightning we're talking about here. Anyway cool grab

This would have been much better if you would have set up where there weren't so many distractions that crowd the picture.

Excellent. I think a crop to make the mast straight up and down would help the composition. It was the first thing I noticed. Good capture.

Awesome timely capture of the bolts.

Yeah, I can feel my hair standing on end.

Great shot of the lighting

The lightning is awesome, colors and composition are a bit drab though.

Lightning shots always deserve some admiration, in my opinion, due to their fleeting nature. The lighting extends outside of the composure here, which isn't too terribly bad. Rest of scene is really dark.
