Nice work!

We rarely get lightning here. I'd love to try to get a shot of some.

Nice shot... Some nice storms moving through MPX, the best of the storms did occur just west of the cities though. Nice job doing that handheld, perfect exposure I think.

Looks good. We had some pretty wicked lightning up here in Fargo this morning as well.

In a word -- incredible!

The sign makes you read it, and draws you right into the rest of the awesome low light details... Excellent...

thank you everyone. I was really excited when I quickly glanced through the photos while out there and saw a giant bolt in the frame. In case anyone is interested, I'm posting the next two shots I took in that burst where you can see the bolt dissipating.

You should create a series of three images next to each other, crop off the left side of the images... Might be cool. :)
