I have always so wanted to capture a shot like this. Either you have to be in one heck of a lightning storm, or be very patient, huh? Beautiful job! The grain is nice too.

I definitely don't think the noise enhances this shot in any way. It's actually really distracting, which is the first I've come across after nearly 100 shots I've voted on. I really, really love grain and noise, but I just honestly don't think it works here. But man, you have a stellar shot otherwise. 7.

nice capture!! I always have difficulty getting lighning. While, I know that this may have been difficult, as you had to shoot where you thought you'd get the best lighting... having something in the foreground, or adding something for interest besides just the lightning might have been nice. Personally I don't think the grain adds to the photo, nore does it necessarily detract.

Great title. Love the fingers of lightning in the purply pink sky. NICE!
