    So I just got back from storm chasing and wanting to try my hand at taking lightning photos.

    This is my best shot as the others are misses =(

    I shot in raw so let me know if I can save it or just try next time.

    Is it over exposed or is the white balance off or both?

    Crop out that pole. Its a nice shot seeing as how lightening is so hard to capture. And the WB looks the same on this as it does on every other lightning shot ive ever seen.

    Yea, I will do that. I shot it on the front steps of my fraternity house. I wish I could have turned the porch light off but ohh well lol.
