Great kingurek 2009-06-03 4:14

Congratulations on a great image. How did you catch this lightning? This composition is so well considered that I am wondering whether you have been standing still and waiting for this lighting ;)? Great sharpness and very impressive effect.

Default To kingurek: hoping

Hi Kinga
Yes, I confess, I was hoping for a lightning to strike, but the result was pure luck. Technically, one should use long exposure to predictably (almost) capture lightning; it's also preferable to have night skies rather than relatively bright daylight as in this shot. To sum it up 1/500 was to prevent camera shake from the strong wind blowing in my back and it was metered to correctly expose the clouds.

Thank you for the kind comment
