Image of Lightning striking the Eiffel tower in Paris on Saturday 20/08/2011, just got back to the hotel and the wife commented that there was lightning outside took a quick look on the balcony of the room in the hotel brighton which had a good view of the tower and there were flashes every 30 - 40 seconds and it was getting closer, had no tripod so i grapped the side table from beside the bed, took the drawer out, flipped it upside down put it on top then put the waste paper bin upside down on top of that to get a clear and steady view over the bars. Got about 3 or 4 shots with lightning in them, had shutter open for about 25-30 seconds a shot with noise reduction on, everytime the camera was performing noise reduction and there was lightning the words 'aaaahhh s**t !!' could be heard over the thunder..... ;) nothing major done to the image, just basic white balance, curves and slightly cropped.
