Willow,

Great photo, and fantastic exposure (or post processing... or both). Very powerful, appropriate "stormy" mood conveyed!!

Bahadir, good insight into the resemblance, you have seen this one well..:!:

equally Bynx, also a genius comparison :idea: .. but not quite as "attractive" as bahadir's suggestion!! But I DID have to laugh!! :lol:

Paul

edit... Willow, would you care to share with us your camera settings (how you took this photo?)

That made me give out a loud laughter, too :-)On the other hand, I couldn't help but feel sorry forour mate's experience, since life is simply perception amongmany a definition...

Btw,Hemight also be using his brother Poseidon's trident : )

Thx all..for the comments... the set up was quite simple i suppose, I set up my tripod and used 'bulb" and used various arpture settings.It is a little tricky to achieve the proper exposure.And not like my old film camera where when using Bulb all I had to do was press the shutter button and depress it again when I felt I had captured all the action I wanted,with my Nikon d80 I had to hold down the shutter button for the lengith of the shot..I will be buying a remote soon!!!

ps..if any one is using the d80 and has used bulb
and knows how to press the shutter button and
depress it again when finished taking the photo
please let me know.......thx willow

Hi Willow, great image, truly striking .
I too own the D80 and for bulb mode you must keep your finger on the shutter release, unless you use one of the remotes. The good news is the remotes are very inexpensive and will allow you to do exactly what you want. Just go into manual mode, spin command dial to bulb, set camera to remote mode and hit the remote and hit it again when your done.
