The Storm Chaser
Lens: Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-4 Camera: Pentax K-x 

The Storm Chaser

Rain and lightning are faked in camera with a spray bottle and pipe cleaner bent into a bolt shape and illuminated off-camera. Minimal Photoshopping (colour tint added to sunglasses, reflection cleaned up a bit), otherwise the usual contrast/colour adjustments, dodging and burning. This is a selfie, so it was tricky to work the spray bottle and camera remote at the same time while keeping the sunglasses at the right angle, but it was a satisfying shoot.

Nominate. I like his explanation of how he did it for great dramatic effect.

I nominate this because as a self portrait, its creative and you had to work and juggle to make it happen. Great job.
