Re: July 2018 Photo Challenge; Night Lights

My first entry in competition here.

Crete Cement ran aground. She took in more water than she could discharge. The captain decided to ground her again in one of the areai in the Oslofjord designated for such action. She settled almost half submerged with a starboard list. Note the oil stain across her superstructure.
A Dutch salvage company brought her afloat with help from a norwegian floating crane.

Her cargo of cement, in bulk, hardened and she was later scrapped.


The original, w 3300 by h 4204 is a lot better than the thumbnail. Even my reduced size image is OK, but turned into a thumbnail.

I need to be educated. In the mean time, I'll try again
Took a while, but image is now in my gallery.

I know its to late, but I would greately appreciate your honest critique.

I am a big boy, so don't worry about hurting my feelings. It's not like you'all could see tears in my eyes anyway

Unfortunately, the image attachment provision is not recommended for showing photos.

ChiaroScuro, Tim.

Great photos both. Is there anyway you can upload a full size image?

I can post those for you if you want, but better coming from you.....

Loved the lightning too Tim really would like to catch one of those myself one day. All in all congrats to everyone who entered there were some excellent shots there.

Re: July 2018 Photo Challenge; Night Lights

Thank you to everyone wasn't expecting this. Was expecting timclarkih to win this as it's not always an opportunity to shoot those lightning.

Would also like to thank Birdboy, Wornish and Petrochemist for the guidance they gave to me on shooting that right and the stacking instructions to get the details out.

Re: July 2018 Photo Challenge; Night Lights

Thank you for the comments and well done to the other entrants for some great shots. My sister in law in Leeds never sees fork lightning yet in London we get it a lot. I think I had 5 attempts that night. What was very pleasing was that was just one crack of lightning after having the shutter open for about 5 minutes. Ok. Go and give August your best shot.
