This cell was about 90 miles from where I was standing, me and my dad watch this grow from a very small could early in the morning, to this gaint. My dad is retired weather man and he said "its cooking with gas now"... I got a chuckle out of it.

Holy G! This looks as some nightmare nuclear vision out of 80-s. Looking forward to reading your descripton on how you achieved this within the constraints of basic e!

I keep looking at this, and cannot decide about the negative space at the top. Now, I love me some good negative space, I surely do, but just can't quite decide: if you cropped down 10% would it be better or not? Would the cloud and road seem even more luminous, or less? Either way, see, you got me paying a lot of attention here! 8!

Love the idea. Wish the clouds/road were even brighter. Conceptually, I think the image would have been even better if you were shooting out the back from the bed of a pickup truck so you got more of that chase feeling.
