Another image from the lightning storm on the 5th of January which kicked off numerous fires around my area in Australia. The fire illuminating the clouds in this picture was brought under control reasonably quickly thanks to the wonderful work of all the fire volunteers throughout the region.

Video from the same night can be viewed here if you wish: [link] Please view large and in HD.

Fantastic shot. I still don't quite understand how you get your pictures so crisp and full of detail. Your star shots as well. Mine tend to look a tad blurry and loose detail (I don't even manage to get as much detail as you in the first place). But yours are so sharp and crisp. Do you use any special filters that you edit together, or play with high dynamic range? Do you stack images, or do you just get these marvelous captures in one single shot?

Cred anyways!
