Challenge: Best of 2008 (Advanced Editing VII*)
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX 18-105 f/3.5-5.6 ED VR
Location: San Lameer, South Africa
Date: Dec 22, 2008
Aperture: f/13
ISO: 800
Shutter: 30 seconds
Galleries: Sky, Seascapes
Date Uploaded: Jan 12, 2009

This shot was taken on the beach of a golf resort called San Lameer. It is located in Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. Right after the storm passed I ran to the beach to get a few shots of the lightning in the ocean. Adjustments made include playing around with white balance, contrast and exposure. Finished it off with noise reduction (due to ISO being way too high), resizing for web, and finally sharpening it a bit.

WOW! Definitely one of the best ones here! Wouldn't be surprised to see this on the front page.

I think this could be greatly enhanced by turning it into a panorama - cutting off the top third of the sky. This would strengthen the vibrancy of the lavender hues and the power and dominance of the lightening bolts.

This is beautiful. I like how it makes power seem more beautiful rather than scary. Great softness of the water too. :) 9
