A long exposure (30 seconds) of an electrical storm, captured from the roof of a hotel in Sorrento, Italy. Plenty of drama in the sky, illuminated by lightning behind the clouds – one bolt can be seen in the top left of the image. I spent a lot of time processing the file which I worked on in TIF format – specifically, reducing noise, fixing hot pixels and cloning stray light trails. I was quite pleased with the result and the clarity of the image, despite difficult (and quite scary) conditions. The only significant blur seems to be associated with moving boats in the harbour below. Thanks for looking.
