Outstanding exposure and crisp results,
great framing of the lighting over the hills,
what a great moment and timing to capture all in one shot, the sea, the hills and the well positioned cruise liner... and not to forget the downpour that can also be observed :D

Stunning capture of the electric storm, though for me cropping off the ferry and most of the town lights makes even more dramatic IMO. A few words add to the notes about how you set up to capture this moment would of intrest to the rest of us. TFS yours Robert
I guess that if you lived in the States you would be one of those Tornado Watchers!!
Many of our large old Kauri trees were killed through lightning strikes.
It looks a beaut storm Greg! I can understand how excited you would have been seeing it like this. How well you did capturing it like this. Thanks for sharing

Wow...what a dramatic shot of this thunderstorm Grzegorz
I can just feel the electricity in the air. I really like how you can see the stream of rain or hail coming down from the clouds. Of course the lightening is pretty spectacular too. The colours are great and your image is nice and sharp.

what a wonderful shot of this thunderstorm. I like the composition.
Another impressive shot from this amazing moment, my friend!
You know, ever since i've seen your first post about this storm, i hoped for such a big thundersstorm, so that i can try and capture a lightning like you...but, badluck...it hasn't rained much in Romania since them :(
Oh well, i'm not that upset - it gave me the opportunity to take shots of other things ;)
Anyway, this too is a magnificent picture, with great DOF, excelletn exposure (BTW - did you compensate ie anyhow?) and superb colors.
Bravo and TFS

What a photo. Such a stunning lightning and so well excecutted. The vertical image is great, showing is part of the gulf and the ominous looking sky. It must have been great to observe this storm.

WOW! That is another great lightning shot! I think the composition is perfect as is. The ferry boat and other lights from the harbor add greatly to this shot for sense of scale. It would ruin the shot to crop them out even if it would not raise more noise. Perfect composition and framing in the portrait mode. The lightning does a beautiful job lighting the clouds and showing the texture.
Hola Grzegorz... otra impresionante y espeluznante escena de la "tormenta perfecta".
Vuelvo a preguntarte lo mismo que en la anterior... 15 segundos de exposición?.
Excelente POV y composición... una gran escena retratada con gran talento.
Gracias por la nota tan interesante también.
Hello Grzegorz... another impressive and bloodcurdling scene of "the perfect storm".
I ask the same thing again that in the previous one... 15 seconds of exposure?.
Excellent POV and composition... a great stage depicted with great talent.
Thank you for the so interesting note also.

Excellent shot Greg!! I really love these kind of lighteningbulbs pictures. I want to shoot one myself some day, but there are hardly any thunderstorms in NL. We do get a lot of rain, but almost no thunder. I love this picture, with the boat in the foreground. Well done & TFS!

Wow, Grzegorz, what an amazing capture! I can't believe you got such a good picture of lightening, and what is that strange cloud streaming down on the right side of the picture? Truly amazing, straight to my favs!
