NYC/Astoria Lightning

Lightning over Astoria/NYC

I took this from my apartment's balcony. I tried with and without ND filters and such. I tried setting long exposures and also using bulb mode. In the end this was the best shot. I used bulb mode without filters. I just held the shutter open and waited for lightning to strike. If it went on too long, I let go and started a new exposure. If lightning hit, I let go right after it was done. Did a very small amount of work in Lightroom. You can see the lightning hitting 1 WTC off in the distance.

There's a lot of light pollution in NYC, so it's very hard to make the sky really dark when all kinds of lights are reflecting off the bottom of the clouds.
