Group Description

A gallery of images of real lightning bolts or lightning-illuminated scenery.

Everyone is welcome to join.

The daily posting limit is 3 images per user per day. This allows every member a fair chance to have their images visible in the first page of the group pool. This also enhances the viewing pleasure greatly.

1. Image should be of lightning bolt(s).

2. When an image does not show lightning bolt(s) then the shot should be primarily illuminated by the light of lightning flash(es).

3. The image must be taken by you. No posting of other users' images or found images.

4. Tags: Simply include "lightning" in the tag.

5. The image of lightning must be a photograph taken by a camera. No drawings, photograms, computer generated images or images taken by anything other than a camera or reuploaded images from the web.

6. Cameras defined: any light gathering device such as a digital camera, film camera, pinhole camera or frame-grab from a motion picture or video camera, CCD or CCTV security camera.

7. The image should be as close to the original shot as possible. It should not be altered or manipulated, with the exception of the following allowed:
- Brightness/Contrast
- Black Levels
- Color correction, hue, (de)saturation
- Cropping
- Noise correction/enhancement
- Deinterlacing (video stills)
