This isn't the best, but it was my first time shooting lightning, so thought I'd share :)
Comments and feedback are very welcome. What are your first impressions? Too blue, not blue enough?

Stunning shot!! I love the lightning reaching out and hitting the water. And the beach foreground adds to the beauty. Great job. (:

this is much better than the attempts ive had at shooting lightning. i only ever seem to get a storm at night time, so focusing is always an issue. this is beautiful.

Aww thank you :D This storm was at dusk, so I was quickly losing light. I just estimated a focusing distance and hoped for the best.

Another lovely photograph, I like how you caught the lightning! My first impression is that the sky seems a bit light blue, but it seems all right if I look at the photo for a longer period of time. :)

Thanks so much the for the feedback :hug: It really does mean a lot. That's the thing, after looking at it for so long, I can't see what's wrong with it anymore. It's always nice to have a pair of fresh eyes :) :heart:

My pleasure! I realised now that my comment was supposed to say 'the sky seems a bit too light blue', hope you managed to decode that even with the missing 'too'. ;)
