UN-LIMITED POWEERR by ElNaso UN-LIMITED POWEERR by ElNaso
Best lightning shot so far ^^

waiting for the right storm to take the shot sure takes a lot of time, and a lot of luck as well.

I can barely describe what that storm felt like, it was like climbing a great mountain and taking a rest at the very top; having the wind and the clouds so close and the world beneath your feet... except, with an epic display of lightning in the sky and, at home.

Very nice! You should check out some of mine. Was this long exposure?

I used 8s wich lets me avoid the double exposure noise reduction. The intensity of the storm was what really enabled me to do this; I catched something in pretty much every shot because of the sheer ammount of lightning.

nice shots btw :) i recommend composing with the landscape when possible (i have some issues with my horizon line or rather, the complete lack of one :x) predict when and where lightning is gonna be and use a tripod (or a rock or anything that lets you angle the camera steady in the desired direction).

Try making a normal long exposure of a city during a thunderstorm. amazing results may emerge :P

Also disastrous; the storm uprooted trees, took down walls and a few people got killed in the process

Conditions were also perfect: very little rain, sparse clouds and localized, intense cloud to cloud lightning right on top of my head with little to no ground strikes for me to worry about

You don't get a lot of those storms where i live :P
