    Long exposer

    I saw some heat lightning in the sky on the way home and as some of you know I'm a sucker for lightning.
    I shot this at
    35mm F/3.2 ISO800 30" sec exposure.

    you should post the first version of it too. I think this one is a little over saturated IMO. great shot though!

    I know it's baked lol. But I do love the look of it so over saturated. Do you see any IQ drop from the over saturation? Or is it just personal preference?

    that's a nice edit. I like that. I still think I like the original one, mainly just personal preference with the cloud color...but both are nice.

    so when you look at the first edit (the over-saturated one) and look at the stars, you can see there are a lot of multi-colored spots, this is color noise from the long exposure. when you compare it to the very top one you can see that its much less pronounced there, or even the new edit. that's one thing that the over-saturation will bring out, since you asked about IQ differences.

    Thanks justin I love the input I get from you.
    The first image is the original edit. The second I was just messing around to see if I could pull a heavy artistic look, and the third is a nice blend of ghe two where you get the nice blue sky and the orange clouds.
    I just love this photo. I'm still in shock.
