HOT DAMN! Where to start? The tension is wonderful in this picture! Not only did you capture the tension, but you were able to show us the contrast in this shot! The second from the right bolt is BEAUTIFUL! In an ideal world, it would be more centered, but then you wouldn't be able to see the stray bolts on the very left. Depending on the resolution of this shot, I would love for you to upload a separate picture of the left side of this photo, because I feel it deserves just as much attention as the blue streak near the center. Thank you for allowing critique. This is a job well done!

Okay then... if I knew where to start with this one, I would have started explaining already. No pun intended, but this left me awestruck. (get it, struck! XD) Anyways, the way you took this is just awesome! The central lightning bolt itself is like perfectly defined in this picture! The only down side to this picture I can see is the fact that everyone submits pictures of lightning here, but by far, this picture left me the most awestruck. (there goes the pun again! XD) And those streaks of lightning streaking across the sky, a combo of pure awesomeness and pure terror! It's just do perfect!

Amazing shot! Would I be able to use this image in a school project? It's non-commercial, but the teacher needs us to get permission from copyright holders of any content we don't produce ourselves. Please let me know ASAP =D

Thank you.

Take your Nikon D3100 and a wide angle lens.
Mount it on a tripod. Closed aperture (f8-f14) and a long exposure time
around 10 -. 30 seconds. Thats it
