Ok, so I wasn't happy with the composition of just cutting the sign out and I've tried all manner of things to try and reduce it's impact on the image.
The best I could come up with, whilst still keeping it natural looking was blending it with another shot with a lower exposure...
For the last two years or so, every time there has been a thunderstorm, there have been circumstances preventing me from going out and photographing it.
Last night, for the first time, I didn't even have to leave home, and managed this shot from my balcony.

The biggest issue with wordpress of course is changing all the URLs inside wordpress and the GUIDs on posts.
There are step by step instructions here: https://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress#Moving_Directories_On_Your_Existing_Server
Unfortunately, part of my day-job is Wordpress...
What are you trying to achieve?
You can run a 100mbps link with two pairs, so you can run two ethernet connections via one 4 pair cable.
Adapters exist for exactly this purpose - I'd opt for an adapter or another double faceplate at the router end rather than trying to wire one cable to two...
So my A7 and 35mm arrived.
Annoyingly, it arrived with the battery completely flat.
It seems to be taking forever to charge with this 0.5 amp charger - why have Sony supplied such a poxy little charger for a camera like this?
Anyone have any idea how long a charge takes from empty to full...
I bought mine from MPB with a 35mm.
I couldn't find the combination cheaper anywhere else apart from the chap on here selling the same + a cheap EF adapter and kit lens for £100 more but with no warranty.
What's the AF like? I've seen some on eBay for as little as £40-60
I don't understand why people are obligated to sell something for what they paid for it?
I've regularly sold things for more than I paid for them - I generally pay what I'm willing to pay for an item and then when I want to...
I've just picked up an A7 + 35mm that arrives tomorrow.
Coming from a list of Canon SLRs (400D, 550D, 650D, 6D, 5D) - I'm hoping I find myself carrying this camera more now considering it's size/weight.
Are there any essential accessories etc. that I should look at? Any bargain...
Have you seen the distortion on the Zeiss 24-70?
I suspect in some cases, it can be worked around and that Sigmas real issue is that they can't just take an existing lens design and chuck an E-Mount on to it.
Is anyone actually using SHDC cards via a CF adapter at reasonable speeds?
I have a ton of high speed SHDC cards from my last two cameras, however, I've just purchased a 5Dc and whilst just being able to reuse them would be handy, it'd also be handy to avoid the use of an external CF reader (my...
I think I'd struggle to deal with the hit in IQ changing completely to a camera with a sensor nearly 50% smaller.
Why not see if you can pick up a used RX100, give it a go and if you don't like it, the chances are you'll be able to sell it on with little to no loss.
You're probably wondering where all the new pictures are.
The truth is, I've failed - some personal family issues mean I haven't had time and I likely won't have time for at least the next few months.
I'm not giving up completely though. I'm going to pick four and attempt a 52 instead.
A quick stop at Totland Beach - two snaps and off again. It took a bit of PP to get it how I wanted (somewhere close to how the clouds appeared at the time).
More star trails - Carisbrooke Castle
Is there a recommended online service that will provide print and framing services?
I've tried buying frames, but can rarely get several to match and I find printing a PITA as it always seems to come out darker than expected.
I don't think there's much left to be had - it was almost black pre-adjustment. It's already pretty noisy in the shadows, where it's needed some pretty aggressive noise reduction.
I'll have a bit more of a play later.
Any PP tips would be greatly appreciated!
I think I agree on the foreground - I'm kind of gutted, as I took loads of bracketed shots up there, but none have the same star effect to the sun - this shot was a one off where I had taken the camera off the tripod. I have loads of shots a couple of stops lighter, but none line up perspective...
I seem to find that when I PP pictures on my MBP (either on the Laptop screen or my Thunderbolt monitor), many PC/Phone/Tablet users complain that it is a little too dark.
After checking myself, this does seem quite evident.
Yes, I do have my screen brightness relatively high, but I do not...
A friend and I had an improptu go at this one evening.
Camera is hand held, but supported by the passenger seat. Interior is lit by a flash on low intensity but wide spread from the passenger footwell.
I've been meaning to try this again with a tripod.
