I'm just so relieved i finally got a vote haha...
My votes were a toss up between Sarasocke and Cutter both reflected their proverb very well and both images were done very well..
Let us know how long you aggrivated your cat LOL --
I went with Cutter's because I am a bit of a lightning fan, I can watch it for hours and we do get tons of it over the summer here "not so much forked - though" I miss watching lightning storms over the indian ocean in Australia so.. anyways both of you deserved to win, however only one of you could...
I was not trying to pull your work to pieces Mark. With the bolts appearing more seperate in depth of view, a whisp of contact sparks, and the light bit toned to suit the sky I probably would have cast my vote your way. Great light and contrast by the way, I'd like to see the tower shot before the change in sky.
I know you were not Andy I need constructive critisim to get any better, so thank you.
As regarding the tower shot post photoshop I am sorry i commited the cardinal sin I flattened the layers and had not save the original .
Ps will send you one when the sun shines again it's only outside my window.
