Re: BlitzSchwimmerBingen

The photo above looks a bit fake to me??  :P

I think you are right. According to the EXIF it was supposed to have been taken at 1/60th of a second at f/2.7, ISO100. If the lightning was going to strike at those settings, a lucky chance shot at 1/60th second, it would have washed out everything in the photo. There's something odd about the way the water is reflecting the lightning too, it cuts off halfway down the water area in front of the waders, the bottom 1/5th of the image doesn't match the rest of it. There's a weird hazy blue area along the left side in front of the tree by the shore and that tree on the left has a wide blue border around it. A lot of dodge and burn brushes and badly done masks being used. Looks like it was a daylight image of people wading in the water where the sun was low, and the sunlight colors were converted to the blue lightning image added later. Add in the reality of that photography situation. Who would be wading in the water, in the dark, during a storm, and they just happen to have a camera pointing that way, with the exposure set for daylight conditions? In the dark? No, this photo never happened.

The photo is the view from my back window - 120km South of Sydney Australia ... Its called Seven Mile Beach and the mountain is called Mount Coolangatta .. Having such a view makes it easy to capture lightning using chdk ..

Here is mine:
Raw mode, 65 seconds exposure, ISO 80, focus set to infinity, I forgot the aperture, zoomed in a little bit, perhaps around 15mm.

Here's one I took with the MD8 script on a A710IS. Focus set manually to infinity, other settings on auto.
