We've had an incredible series of late-afternoon thunderstorms through late May and June. And I've been frustrating myself trying to capture lightning with the camera. Until last night I didn't have one image I liked. When it started storming last night, the storm came in from the South, instead of from the West and that made all the difference. I had an unobstructed view of the lightning display as it came in and I was able to catch some really nice images. Check the rainbow and the lighting in one shot!

Later tonight, I'll plug these into DxO to correct for the underexposure on the trees. For now, I'm happy to have a shot with lightning.
This is probably the most dramatic correction. DxO is really a very interesting program. All I did was let the program correct for the fisheye-effect, and I manually adjusted the exposure to +1.5, which corrected for the underexposed foreground. These shots are very natural looking after correction. They do not look Photoshopped.
