St. Pete Lightning

Lightning captured over the St. Petersburg skyline.

 

Came across this gem from last month while backing up recent images. One shortcoming of RAW images, no thumbnail is created unless you've downloaded and installed the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack. Being late to the RAW party (and being guilty of not keeping up with all the latest offerings from Microsoft), I've only recently installed the codec pack, and as a result this image almost went unnoticed. Considering how ACR rendered the image with only some minor tweaking, that would have been a shame.
