[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a lightning shot, I took right in front of my home.
I wanted to photograph the foto outside town, but thought, lets try this one between the homes, in a town enviroment, ans see how it will produce.
I tried to capture the street lights, as well as the Lightning, and it almost over expose the street lights.
I had too choose not a too long SS, and had a real experience, timing the intervals between the lightning
Look at the exif data, and you can see that this one was taken at 15/1s SS.
Hope you enjoy, and any critique welcome.

Hi Jan,
Wow how did you capture that? It's really cool and electrifying. It's not just a single lightning but multiple lightning.
Thanx for sharing.


I'm impressed. Your diligence paid off. The moment, obviously, is spectacular. The colors and composition are fine, too. Nice work. Congratulations. -Hugh

Nicely done!
Would look good on frame too..

Hola Jan, precioso disparo y excelente momento... saludos

ANOTHER cool lightning shot!
I like the spider web effect. I wouldn't worry about the OE of the streetlights, I know how hard it is to keep from that, you could easily clone them out, but I wouldn't. Very nice moody shot, I think your on a roll!

There, we have a full supply!,
Super capture!
I guess the Nikon survived!


Hello Jan!
Beautiful shot, good detail! Nice colours and sharpness!
Well done!

Hi Jan

Wow... talk about and electric shock... oops shot! Fantastic! We only get sheet lightening in New Zealand and that is not very impressive! TFS.

Hello Jan,
Fantastic shot, I love this type of photography.
Nice composition.
Baie goed gedoen,

Hi there!
Great shot! Very dramatic!
Well done!

Hi Jan...
I went trough your gallery and liked it most... but this is an impressive photo...this photo is an example for: "to be on the right place at the right time and make the right decision to make the shot"...
my congratulations and thank's for sharing...

Great shot, friend. You were kind to catch with success the indicated moment. The fluidity of the neon lights, as well as the silhouettes are a good complement to the composition

Hi Jan,
Wow... what a lightning !
...the right photographer at the right place and at the right moment !

Nice capture! maybe its me but is there a black patch next to the street light or is it a birds flying by?
