I learn't two valuable lessons yesterday. I got a call from someone telling me to go check out an electrical storm which I did. There was one cloud above the sea with almost permanent lightening for about 30 minutes. The sad thing is that my camera was at home. Lesson number one - always keep your camera with you. So I rushed home got my camera and found to hy horror it had stopped. But on the way back I noticed a strange mist by the street light made for an interesting photo. Lesson number two - don't let your dissapointment of missing an awesome photo stop you from getting another cool photo. This one comes straight from the camera.

Wonderful! Were they actually basking in it or were they there long before? (Silly question of course - I doubt you know! )

Actually, the people in the photo were friends of mine who came with to see the lightening. The first few photo's I took of the scene were just empty scenic shots, then I asked them to pose, and the photos with them in turned out better.

Awsome. It would be hard to convince people that you didn't do some special effect with software it is so unusual. Excellent capture!

On that topic, is there anyway either prove to someone that a photo has not been touched up or be able to tell if someone else has touched up a photo? I've seen when I've used Photoshop it shows in the Exif info(if you view with Iranview), but is there any other way?

I think the exif info probably is the primary way to tell.

Even with the EXIF it only tells you what program was using to modify the pic. It could have only been resized by Photoshop, so you can't really know if it was filtered,etc.
