Photographer's Note

This was a freak thunderstorm in Vancouver the other day. We've been having a huge heat wave lately with temperatures in the 30s and sun every day. This is the sun setting over West Vancouver, with St. Mary's school in the foreground.

This was a long exposure, so I stopped it down 1/3 to account for the ambient light given off by the lightning.
My camera also underexposed the foreground for some reason, so I increased the mid-frequency levels in photoshop. This made the sky too bright, so I then selected the sky and darkened it to its original colour.
The result is closer to what I saw that night.
