    Nice shot! I like the contrast of the heavy dark clouds with the lighter part at the bottom.

    I'm at a point now where i get 8-10 good shots and 3-4 great shots on a roll of film. This was my first attempt to shoot lightning with a digital though. This was shot with my Canon 10D and a 90mm f2.8 1:1 macro lens by Tamron. It's the clearest lens i've ever used.

    I wouldn't trade the 10D for anything... The only time i use a lot of film anymore is for lightning and northern lights. I find that the noise in the photos when shot with the 10D is a bit much. Anything longer than about 30 seconds tends to heat the sensor to a point where noise is unavoidable.

    Even the photo above, when viewed full size is a bit noisy.

    But Hey, Thanks for the comments and the nice welcome to the board.

    What i like most about this picture is not the lightning, but the way the lightning has backlit the clouds giving its tone and shadows. Suberb shot. Oh the lightning is pretty cool too.
