Last night at when it was near dusk we had some storm clouds roll through my area that produced some very interesting lighting effects. I tried capturing these with my D90 and nikkor12-24 mm lens, but failed miserably and want to find out what I did wrong. The first two photos were taken at opposite sides of a bridge. In the first photo, the sky was a brilliant shade of blue with some cool clouds coming through. At the time, it seemed like there was enough light to capture both the sky and the lake shore but while the sky more or less came out, the lake and lake shore were very dark. That image can be found here. http://gallery.me.com/glocke12#100300 This second image was taken from the opposite side of the bridge just a few minutes after the first. It has turned out substantially better than the first, but, but the center area seems horribly out of focus. http://gallery.me.com/glocke12#100307 Comments or Suggestions?
