Here is another one from my lightning´s serie. This time we can see twins, just over the sea. It´s from the same place, Caiobá, south of Brazil, and I had the chance to catch it from my apartment´s balcony. The colour, this time blue, is different from the last post, purple, maybe because the lightnings are stronger, double, and closer, making more light. I hope you like it. Cheers!

Hi Jose,
A beautiful capute of twin lightning. You've catched it at the right angle at the right time. The reflection on the sea is great and the color is beautiful.

I find lightening "electrifying", Jose. This is a great snap shot.

Hola Jose.- Es exelente esta foto, tiene muy buen nivel de luz, contraste con el mar la hace ver extraordinaria, es dificil tomar a los rayos en las tormentas, es necesario mucha paciencia. Felicidades Luis52

Wow, this is a hard shot to do. And you did a great job! I have a couple of minor suggestions, though. First, you could straighten it a bit (Use the ocean as your horizon line). Second, there might be some noise you could filter out (with Noiseware or such).

Hola José Augusto,
Excelente!. me gustan los colores y la nitidez de la imagen. Por supuesto los rayos estan espectaculares, me gusta ver tormentas y eston que caen en el agua son muy lindos

Hi, Jose.
Fantastic shot! Superb moment you have got here. One of great nature wonders. Nice composition and excellent colors.

Spectacular capture Jose! I like it! Details are impressive and colors are beautiful. Great work!

BHi Jose,

Hello Jose,

This is excellent!! I would really like to capture something like this sometime myself. You even got two lightening strikes in one single frame. Extremely well done! TFS!


Like the shot loads its got great impact with a sence of danger. A little advice though have a go at Straightening that wonky horizon up a bit.

Another nice shot. It's interesting what sorts of colors lighting can give off. I'd like to learn more about what makes lighting different colors. The contrast in this photo is great, as is the color. The level of the sea slopes just a VERY tiny bit down, to the right.. but other than that, I'd say the shot is perfect!

Grande foto, Zeca!!! abração.

Speechless photo...Great job!!

Hola José,
¡Que maestría en la foto de estos rayos! Nunca he intentado tal cosa, pero intuyo que será bien difícil. A mí estos me parecen soberbios y la luz del cielo y del agua. Perfecta.
Gracias por compartir.
José M.

TFS :-)
