    WOW! Those are really incredible! I love the one with the rainbow in the shot and the one with the wind and rain blowing across the frame...

    Excellent. Shots 5 and 6 look far too close for comfort! What shutter and ISO settings were you using here?

    Might want to fix that horizon in shot 4 by the way ;-).

    Thanks

    Well i was bopping around from 5 second to 30 second long exposures, f 3.5 -5.6 range the whole time.

    Well
    You wanna see to close for comfort..

    This is about as close as i ever want to get..
    hit the water right on the other side of the pier..
    i had a wide open aperture so it was far to bright..

    Holy hell! At that point I think I'd jump back in the car and floor it out of there, LOL.

    Thanks for the settings. I've been trying 30 sec exposures myself but they come out far too bright. Thinking about investing in an ND filter but I'm not entirely sure it would help much with 30 sec of light hitting the sensor. Also not too sure it would even see the split second bolt!
