An absolutely amazing shot, well planned and executed. The colors are fantastic.

Thanks for the idea. That sounds like a plan, although the adrenalin rush was worth the risk:)

To get a shot like yours... I'd take a bit more risk than normal! I can't think of a better lightning pic and I've looked at thousands!!

That's a VERY nice scene. :)

The sharpening halos are rather intrusive. Maybe a re-spin is in order.

Those might be caused by the Clarity adjustment.

Fantastic shot! Your planning paid off big time! If you get addicted to lightning like I am...consider a lightning trigger. I went from getting a few useable shots per storm to almost every shot useable (assuming the strike was in frame)
Crazy thing never misses and it is a bit safer as you can set it and run for cover if the strikes get too close. :)

No need for a trigger. With a dark sky and reasonably long exposures, you can just lock the shutter and machine-gun away.

The close strikes that come from nowhere are half the fun! ;)

What's that?

Whatever the cause, IMO the halos give the photo an overcooked/HDR feel.

I have just had another look and I see what you mean. It was the clarity that did it. I've respun it as suggested, looks much better now. (Not perfect but better) Thanks for the advise and suggestion.
