      Thanks all. And jay, I was thinking of your excellent liberty pic and what you said about firing off 80 shots before you got something. I missed a direct hit on the Empire and several other full sky forks before I finally got this. Much harder to catch lightning than I imagined!

      Great Picture!

      I tried last night for a similar picture, sadly my roofdeck faces south, and the lighting was all west and north.

      for lightning at night I usually go with a 1.5 second exposure and f/10. What did you use?

      Great stuff! Love the exotic purple sky and the green (?) Empire Steeple.

      Fan-friggin-tastic... I mean any capture of lightning like this is a wow thing, but the purple sky & green lights totally brings this to a whole other level
