I woke up at 6am to see the sun rise over the Aegean, and a storm was about to break... It was just just beginning to rain, the wind blew over the beach and was trying to capture the lightnings. When the shutter close, there was still one lighting in the viewfinder. I opened the preview to see that I got more lightnings than I bargained for :)

Nice picture - I like the cropping and composition. Just wish you had corrected that sloping horizon.

Impressive!! I love the simple, symmetrical composition which focuses the eye on the twin lightning strikes. Great job capturing this.

You were lucky! Hope you bought a lottery ticket that day!

Great capture.

I LOVE lightening shots, but maybe you could have included some foreground or side-interest instead of the flat horizon.
