Here’s a photo of the Jupiter Lighthouse during a lightning storm. This one bolt was kinda high in the sky so I took another exposure for the bottom half of the image. I ended up stitching two images together in Photoshop and then lightly tone mapping in Photomatix for a little more contrast. I kept this image more natural than my usual style.
