    Wow - nice capture!

    Nice timing. I thought that you maybe used a long shutter speed, but when I looked at the info it shows only .6 seconds. Well done.

    Perhaps it would have been easier to use a longer shutter speed, but I ended up just using the continuous shooting mode, and holding the button down. I took probably 300-400 shots that night and ended up with 2 lighting captures. Unfortunately I was going through glass, would have been nice to been on a balcony.

    even without the lightning I would have liked this shot. The lightning makes it a awsome picture..

    Hello! I would like to use this image in an educational application for iPad (of course with proper attribution to you). The application is designed to teach children to read in Spanish, and I think this picture represents beautifully the concept "Lightning".
