    The storm came through late in the evening and I was able to catch this shot on the back side of the storm as it moved out in to the Gulf of Mexico.

    Alas, the storm must have carried away the image, as well...Nasty winds we have here in Florida.

    Still only came in as a thumbnail. Go back to the instruction sheet as you've missed the final step and it is easier described there than i can do.

    You get the best photos, especially storm photos, in the countryside, although if you live in a highrise in the city you can get some pretty good lightning strikes.

    I have done this for you

    Nice picture, I might suggest losing say 15% of width off left hand side - there's not much going on there (sky is a black hole) and it would put the lightning bolt closer to a third.

    Cheers,
