    I thought I would share one of my first lightning pics with you. I know it's overexposed in the bright areas, but lightning is unpredictable. It was taken well after dark at the very edge of a storm system my husband and I chased for 4 hrs. It was too rainy to get good shots at the beginning and we got this just before we headed home. Hope you enjoy it!

    that is awesome, I think that the overexposure is not an issue I think it adds to the shot, it adds a lot to it gives a real sense of the power of the lightning.

    Excellent! Lightning is so damn hard to capture. So. Damn. Hard.

    This is a very nice capture, and the overexposed areas aren't bad.
