    Nice. I tried to do that a few times on stormy days but failed.

    That photo is STUNNING. I'd love to have a high-res image like that to see on my TV.
    We have digital cameras , but we NEVER print the results. I just stick an SD card into my TV and see superb images.

    You just have to be lucky to click the shutter at the EXACT time!

    Great picture!

    Hi All:

    I do not believe this was a snap the shutter pic but a a timed exposure shot with two bolts over a few seconds. Notice the rear tail lights illuminating the ground? I do not believe they could light up like that with a snap. I know Mike Sefton took one during the F-150 Adventure Challenge Drive that blew us all away where it was almost pitch black, three lanterns were inside three tents and he forced the shutter of whatever camera he was using to stay open for 30-seconds or more. It turned out great.


    Anyway, I am considering a Canon Rebel EOS 3Ti for $725 shipped from right now. Anyone have a better suggestion as I really have to get the vids and pic and vid quality up from what I have been posting the past two years.

    I have taken 6 hours exposures over several days of dim astronomical objects.. but by combining several exposures in photoshop.. but that Cruze does look like a long exposure.

    Hi Wayne, that 3Ti should really make a big difference, the pics coming out of a DSLR always look so much better than any point & shoot. The downside of course is its bulkiness and needing different lenses and so on. I was lucky to have a good friend who was into photography and he taught me a good amount, the picture I took there could be done with almost anyone's camera. I used my $300 Panasonic ZS5 for that. It's good for the most part except it's not the most sensitive in low light (no P&S really is), that's why I needed a good 20 seconds or so to get something like that. If I had the money though, I would have a DSLR to get better shots, and also the ZS5 to carry around when I don't want the weight of a DSLR.
