Wow Nick, that is outrageously great presentation. I love the post processing result of your photos, they're just incredible. The colors of the image in Jimmy's post are absolutely amazing! My shot is almost all blueish, while the lightning itself is white as snow and no matter what I try it always craps out. :)

I have to start making savings for 2008, I miss the may of 2006, even tho the season sucked, it was still a experience to remember for life!

Well done and well presented Nick!

It gives you the feeling that you want to get 'out on the plains' as soon as possible.

an easy to use great  tool for presenting your photos is called "soundslides" which quickly combines jpgs and sounds files WAV or Mpeg , i could imagine it may be of great use to use your own voice to describe each image from a chase especially for those of you who do not shoot video and prefer the stills. i am using this for some of the presentations i am doing , but the big USA chase one also had a producer and flash expert to work on it ( by the way the nerdy bio on me was not my idea , so embarressing) so it helped to look good

the web site if you want to try soundslides is
www.soundslides.com
 and i think it is about $40 AU

by the way , andrej great to hear from you and look forward to chasing with you guys again!

Hello guys!

First, let me say hello to all fellow chasers with whom we chased last year! It has been an excelent time (even it was a bad season, we still had great chasing days) and looking forward to our future chasing on the Plains and hopefully someday also in Australia.

Nick that is really an amazing presentation there, love that noaa radio with sirens in the back besides those impressive images, good job with the post processing indeed!

Keep these great images coming and see you all in few months, we all know where! :)

Regards,
Marko
