    I hope I have not worn out my welcome with all these storm clouds and such but I have to show somebody.

    Holy smokes, the lighting in those is wonderful ... such ominous dark clouds, yet the fields are still sunlit. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm sorry to tell you all but I photoshopped the lightning. :( I had the hardest time getting the lightning into the shot because there was a huge gap between shots. So I dodged that area then colored it just a slight purple color and blurred it. This actually make me think when editing a picture is too much... In my optinion, you should never put stuff into the picture that wasn't there, but even in that there is a very fine line on how much editing is too much. What's sad about this picture is that it's fake and doesn't capture a true image but one that I imagined in my head, but then again that could be considered art. It's a hard issue for me. I did it just for fun though.

    I like what you've done here, altered or not.

    BTW, I just noticed your sig and just had to comment. I thought that I was the only one left on the planet who was still using (on occasion) a Canon D30 (not 30D). I'm happy to see that I'm not alone :)

    Thanks guys.

    Megapaws, I had to buy the D30 because I really couldn't afford anything else at the time but I also had some lenses from my film Canon so it also had to be a Canon. I love it but I need a new lense. The quality of the shots are subpar for me as far as sharpness is conserned.

    I love the rich colors and the mix of sunlight and stormclouds. Very peaceful. Was there actually lightning there that day? I think it's beautiful, not sad at all- it's art, which doesn't have to be a factual record.
