There was a storm here last night .... quite a scary one, there was an average of 3-4 lightning strikes in a minute o_o; ... so I decided to go for a lightning hunting

all photos have an exposure of 20s with f/5.6

picked up 5 of the best ones, too lazy to crop them :D

I like them all a lot, but I think my favorite is the last one ^^

all I can say is...this is amazing ^^

I love the second one. It's blue, so maybe that's why. Blue being my favorite color. The last one is definitely the best, though.

Great photography! Love the lightning, I like how the building below goes with it. Wish there was lightning around where I live. Sometimes we get some, but not always. I think it's just a beautiful sight.

I already told you this but I absolutely loved those photos. The second one is my favourite *_* The last one looks like an alien finger going zap! lol

The theme was simple, but I liked it. Pixel quality, angles, and composition were all good as far as bringing out the theme obviously. I love that second photo the most--really nice electric blue in that lightning bolt.

They all looked good, I'm glad that someone showed a lightening thread, i love it, show more.

Tnx for all the comments ^_^

@ Soul Crusher: composition still isn't perfect :D In photography is not really a good idea to have the horizon in the middle of the photo, it pretty much goes against the rule of thirds (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds).
In my case, all photos should be cropped a bit and a centimeter or 2 should be removed from the bottom.

I've decided to try and send 2 of them for printing ... I hope they quality is good enough for an A4 format.

Those are all so great! Ive always wanted to take pictures of lightning..but my husband wont let me..Hes afraid Ill be struck. lol.. Maybe one of these days Ill convince him to let me try. Good job though!

They're right, the second one is by far the best and most scary one of them all. That must have been a hell of a lot of lightening. o_o

Third one is the best for me! What a nice time for taking pictures, I wish I could have some lightning stoms here *sighs*

Really cool photos!
