This picture was taken off of my apartment stairs on a tripod. Long exposure (30Sec) and at 100 ISO. Tripod with mirror lock up. With the 28-135 IS @ 28mm and IS off. Enjoy.

Good shot, but I think the un-cropped image is more powerful!

Very nice. I agree, though...the uncropped seems even more interesting to me.

Outstanding! Personally I like the full shot, the cloud detail gives more to the photo.

Definitely uncropped version!! Nice work! If you just got a little closer and held a steel rod in your hand you might get be shocked to get an even better photo... :G

I don't want to seem too naive, but perhaps I am. Let me see if I understand how you took this photo. You set up a tripod and pointed it in the direction of the storm. 30 sec at 100 ISO, and you were lucky enough that a flash of lightening happened during that time? If there was no lightening, you end up with a black or almost black frame? If so, how many times did you try this where you didn't catch anything?

Also, did you put the eyepiece cover on?

BTW: Great shot!
