Exciting Night Out
Exciting Night Out

August 2007 Nature and Landscapes
Fellow BPer Chris Budny and I had alot of fun under umbrellas capturing the lightening show that was going on at the mall last night. It was a whole lot of fun and such an exciting night. We were both so thrilled at what we were getting. I know we both shouted out with glee every time we caught a strike. Also, check out Chris's lightening shot at the World War II Memorial. It's just awesome! http://www.betterphoto.com/gallery/gallery.asp?memberID=136794 I wasn't able to get one from there, but Chris managed it perfectly! This was taken from the Arlington Memorial Bridge. I really liked how the lightening framed the Lincoln Memorial. Aperture f/22 at 4 seconds. This is my 2nd resubmit, as a very small editing flaw, that I have now corrected, was noticed in the first submit.

member since: 10/3/2005 Your lightning bolt capture is so cool! I love that you can see the "starting point" in the sky! And the car streaks, and star-points on the street lights; a very eye-catching image! (I'm jealous of those star-points; my lens only does 6-sided stars!)

Amazing shot, Susan. The lightning frames the Lincoln Memorial perfectly and your night capture exposure is perfect. I have seen Chris's wonderful photo--these are both winners!! Hope we see them again.

Yes, I ended up with a couple of these in the same location--one actually is right behind the memorial. But I really liked how the lightening is framing the memorials. Thanks, Nikki for commenting! :)

What a wonderful, wonderful shot. Great composition. You and Chris sure produced some great photos from that night. Chris asked me to go that night, but . . . with the Redskins playing I did not go. Now I'm sorry . . . and jealous.
