My first challenge entry. I've had my D80 for a hair over a week now and had a good shot with this storm tonight. This was also my second time ever playing with photoshop. Editing went something like this:


I'm not expecting a very good score as I'm just getting my feet wet in all of this, but we'll see what happens. I appreicate all comments and would love any feedback folks have to offer.

Good job.


First thing to do is make sure the horizon is straight. Voters will skunk you for even slightly slanted horizons!

I like the lightning and the clouds. I like how the 15s shutter speed brought out the stars from behind the clouds.

Tilted horizon really blows an otherwise great shot.

Great capture of the stars and the lightning. I would have leveled the horizon, though.

It seems to be a little out of focus

Beautiful !

Love the sky, but the sea doesn't match the cloud in quality.

This Picture has soo much potential. Pity about the soft focus and the sloping horizon. What are the white spots in the clouds?
07/04/2007 09:01:56 AM
Need to straighten the horizon. Too much sky.
07/04/2007 02:37:35 AM
Etheral and beautiful.

Great moment. But unfortunately the photo does not match the moment. Keep on trying.
