This is an amazing photo and congrats!! I'd love some pointers on how to get less grainy looking photos, especially for night shots like this one.

I like this a lot. Conveys the myth very well, and is damn cool looking! That's a lot of lightning. I like the telephone poles heading off into the distance, gives a real sense of scale and depth.

edit: me spell good!

What I liked: Wow! great lightning shot, and the towers going into the distance on the horizon is a great effect!

What I didn't like: Image seems a bit small, the title seems awkward to me. Why not "Lightning never strikes the same place twice"?

Nice colors
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The row of power poles gives a great perspective of the immensity of this strike. Good capture :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/04/2006 03:39:37 AM
Wow! Only thing I'd've done differently would have been to bump up the saturation of the purple sky and the increase the contrast to get the lightning really standing out. Great shot all the same though.

Excellent job!!

07/02/2006 06:07:06 PM
Your foreground could be more interesting, but you sure caught lots of very impressive lightning bolts! I like the purple sky.

I like this one! It's alot different then most of the other pictures entered in this competition! (Including my own!) Good thinking, and I hope you were in a car with rubber tires! Or at least standing where the lightning had just struck! O.k. just kidding! I thought it would be funny! Har-har!

Great shot, nice tones and detail. Nice job on the exposure not overexposed at all.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2006 08:40:16 PM
ooh, competing lighting shots. This one looks more like MOC. You know, I actually think sometimes you can get too many bolts in the picture. Here less may wind up being more. I think the telephone poles is a neat touch though. 6

Pretty busy storm there! The extra long landscape crop is perfect for this photo and composition. Great color tone as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/28/2006 02:42:44 PM
This is great - I love the colour of the sky, and I like the added interest of the telephone wires at the bottom of the picture. I'm interested to know what the length of exposure was?

Maybe taking the black strip of sky away, would help make this image pop more. maybe a touch of contrast and saturation just a touch.
