Wasnt sure how this would do - but i think the whole "ooo you captured lightning" kept it afloat. Basic is not good for this photo to get lightning colours and detail and still retain normal(ish) colours and detail in the buildings...

This is the "advanced" version with some perspective adjustment and some layering of other shots i took that evening for "more" lightning:

An incredible shot, and nicely edited to desaturate the buildings.

Hey, we submit the same title... Great men thinks alike! =p

Fantastic shot! You even manage to get the branches of the lightning!
Your shot reminds me of Batman, Gotham City. Almost expecting the batman sign to be casted upon the clouds.. A 10 for the great shot!

Another great shot with the same title. The skewing is a bit distracting, and I'm not sure the desat works for this image.
