Electric Charge
by Martina Gulin (martina23000) FIRST POTD!
Canon EOS 450-D / Canon Digital Rebel XSi
Croatia (Local Name: Hrvatska)

Photographer Notes:
Taken around 3:00 a.m. the other day. The thunders woke me up, so I quickly got up, grabbed my tripod, camera and remote and ran out to my balcony to capture these beauties... I waited for almost a year for such a storm to take place, and I'm pretty content with the results :-)

Wow, that's amazing! I'd be over the moon if I'd got a superb shot like that! Many congratulations Martina on your 1st POTD!

Such amazing results! Such an awesome capture of the lightning itself, but you also managed to get some really nice reflections and some nocturnal sailboater. Big congrats on your first!

Very nice! I got some lightening pics last night but not as nice as this one. Great job!

Thanks everyone :-) I'm really glad you like it! You don't want to see how my first lightning shots (from last year) turned out... Ever since, I was preparing for this - something like a "probation" - I studied the technique, bought the tripod and finally the remote - and of course, I got very, very lucky :-)))

What a great first time POTD! This is just a gorgeous photo of the lightening, and the reflections in the water make it even more special! Congratulations on your win today!
