Dude, don't be discouraged! I just got lucky last night, heard thunder and went outside to check for lighting.

You got this brother! I'm certain what you post will be epic!

It was sarcasm but thanks for the vote of confidence. I have a lot to learn but it sure is fun.

I recently picked up a Tokina 11-20 f/2.8 and had some free time tonight to 'chase the light'. I sat at this field edge for about an hour watching the light change. As the sun set behind the clouds, right along the edge, there was a distinct line between the color and light rays cast by the clouds.

It's been a while since I've been behind a camera, any and all critique is appreciated.

I know it's not going to beat out some of these other entries, but this was from Memorial Day weekend on the Bolivar peninsula, and was just too cool not to post

Man! Y'all made it tough on me! Nice shots!!

All the lightning shots are awesome. Definitely chasing to catch that light. Great job! And I always love a good sunrise or sunset. Really nice.

The photo that, to me, hits what I was looking for the best by capturing the contrast of light and shadow in a pretty scene with good composition is the one by Antlers86. The road leads your eye into the photo and into the light. Then you find the starbursted sun peaking through the trees. Great shot!

To me, all it needs is just a little tweaking in the processing to accentuate the light and color a bit more. But just a great shot. Congrats on the win!

They made it tough on you, Shane, but I think you chose the right one. All great entries. I was just too tired to post anything up. Maybe next time.
