Nuclear Explosion Panoramic Picture

I took this at the exact right moment of sunset. It turned out looking sort of like a nuclear explosion!

Looked for mushroom cloud, didn't see it. Left unsatisfied.

I say nice photo, but I don't see any correlation to a nuclear explosion in this photo.

I see it. Don't look for a mushroom cloud but the initial explosion...the light.

Really? I mean of course, how can you expect a mushroom cloud? It looks like the beginning of a nuc blast when it first detonates.


Well, best picture I've ever taken.

now you've got 11, but when they're all saying WTF, that's not a good thing. I mean, it's not even a good sky picture, let alone looking like a nuke. you failed miserably.

or are you just an attention whore who gets off at people replying that you're smoking crack.

All you need to do was adjust the levels slightly and the mushroom cloud shows up. Oh, and straighten the horizon.

The "Nuclear Explosion" bit may have been a slight over sell and under deliver.

I take it you mean more like the actual explosion and not the resulting conventional mushroom cloud. A bit like the explosion featured in akira?

Wow, no need to result to name calling. It was just a simple picture and statement I made about the picture.

No need to call me an "attention whore". I am a very nice person and even more so on the internet. I don't take things too seriously either.



I was just real happy I took a nice picture.



Man, one of my first treads on this forum and I'm already getting my head chewed off!

Eh, it happens unfortunately. You should see what happens when you tell someone not to tell Apple they didn't know there was water damage in a computer.

I guess if you eat a shroom and then lick a frog it would look like an explosion.

Take it easy on the guy. There IS a flash that goes off first during a nuclear explosion, so perhaps that's the effect the OP was referring to, which I can see. Just not exactly something to start a new thread for, seeing as how there are several existing threads meant for sharing your photos.

It was the best I could do without having to mask out a background - which let's face it - is just too much work.


Don't take the responses too personally .

OP, I see what you mean. The Panorama makes it look like there is a yellowish-white dome of light as is similar to what results from the initial shockwave from a thermal nuclear detonation.

Thanks.

I don't take them the least bit seriously. I mostly come to the internet to become informed and learn things, and to have fun. Never to waste my time getting butt hurt over over a comment or suspecting sarcasm in someone.


I used to be part of a forum that basically had no limit to what your mind could post. It was 100% freedom, and to a certain extent, it worked out ok. It shut down early this year due to the owner having other obligations.....(marriage).

I wasn't calling you an attention whore, just asking if you we're one . I wasn't being serious either. funny thing is looking at the thumbnail now I see the glowing dome you must have been talking about. Try for a little earlier or late next time for more colorful clouds.

I saw this one explode (1958):

I don't usually do this on this site, but if you want to see the memoir that included the image I've linked to (and two others, from the 1958 test series), it's here:
