This is a wonderful shot of nature. The lightning striking on a stormy night makes interesting viewing! You have timed it well. The light and shadows, colours and the composition have worked out well. Good luck!

Excellent capture of the lightning strike in the dark night sky and very good entry for the contest. Well worth you braving the weather! Very good lighting and focus. The silhouettes of the trees and shrubs add great contrast. Good luck in the contest. Suzanne

Comment from Dick Lee Shia


Excellent choice of subject.
Natural phenomenon.
An interesting initial impact.
Dramatic chiaroscuro capture.

We can crop a bit of the dark portions to focus more on the fantabulous lightning.

Sharply focused.
No blown out spots.

Thanks for sharing...

A beautiful stop action picture of this flash of lightning lighting up the darkness of the night sky, while the trees in silhouette on the horizon add interesting shapes & extra points of view. Beautiful composition framing and lighting taken with superb camera techniques and sharp focus.

You have a gorgeous capture here of the lighting and the deep navy sky is just the perfect color. A fantastic entry for the contest. I like that its subtle and really emphasizes the night.
Very nicely done, best wishes in the competition.

This is indeed a stunning capture. I love the shape of the silhouetted trees, which draws the eye to the main event - the lightening strike. Excellent work.

Comment from helvi2


I think the shot is awesome! I have yet to capture a lightening bolt you captured it beautifully. I think it has so I envy you. In the dark this streak of lightening can't be overlooked. It's an awesome sight. I think real potential to win the contest! Good Luck! :o) Helvi

    Wow, Thank You for this Great Review!!! I appreciate so much your time in looking and writing a review. Keep trying on that shot and it will happen. It's taken me quite a while to finally get this one. I do not use any tools/equipment to help get the shot. If it's dark out, I put my camera on bulb and when I hear thunder, open the shutter up, once the lightening flashes, I close the shutter and look to see what, if anything was captured. Hope this helps in your next attempt. :) Jill
