Looking over the Broadwater towards Southport Yacht Club/Main Beach, it was a great show and a little harder to shoot(this night) with rouge bolts landing behind the buildings on occasions blowing out exposures that should end up like this.

    You are so good at this!

  • I’ll send you the link to my out takes when I put a couple up, same settings as this but a rouge bolt landing behind the buildings does play with the exposure a bit
