Dodge the buildings, burn the sky. However, leave the lightning area bright.:)

Just my tots.

I can't tell you how to improve, for a photographic image can only have an aesthetic vision that can only be recognised by the photographer. The viewer appreciates, critques (if applicable) and admires.

There are many opporturnities to play with, like Curves, Filters and Gradient Maps. That's what's fun about PS: experimentation.

the setting is

1/90 f/6.7 ISO 100 at 28mm

:embrass:

btw, lastboltnut's suggestions sound good but need a bit of skills. that would really make it dramatic. XiaoMiaoWang has given what you needed to know. curves go up go down. colours go up go down. just playyyyyy! it's free.

this picture is really flat except for the nicely placed captions and the streak of lightning.

I tried some filters but almost all looks very 'fancy' to me. Hm.. thanks for ur suggestion anyway i guess i should learn more on photoshop also. (now still learning about the cam :))

mann you're very lucky to capture the streak of lightning, especially with 1/90 shutter speed...usually ppl capture lightning bolts by slow shutter plus tripod...

Shoot more, Learn more!
Happy Shooting ^^

ah.. no wonder so hard to capture... now i know why. First i use very fast shutter speed and slowly reduce it.. :bsmilie: hahha silly me! i should tot of that.. very slow speed with tripod ai yah.. never mind hope next time still got chance. I mean chance to shoot lighting not about the flood & storm.

wow .... very nice.

the main attraction is the lighting, which eventually leads my viewing path towards the tall highlighted building in the centre. :)

maybe can try PS to make the rest darker, leaving only the highlighted area on the tall building?

just my 2cents :)

No need, if you make improvement of the same pic, you are suppose to get feedback and try out mah..... But I would suggest you post it in this thread and not starting another new thread.:)
