My god, to all the people who have currently said it is not fake, kuddos to you!! To the people have have said that they can see pixels, and or have seen so many fake pictures, read some freaking articles! Don`t just look stupid, for christ`s sake at least read the article and not look so freaking dumb in front of people...Too many people don`t read and never learn that some things CAN happen without photo shop. You just need to learn how to take it, have a VERY nice and VERY VERY VERY expensive camera with the correct lenses, and alot of skill. Plus this pic has credentials if you would just look at them.


Well, I`ve said my piece, if only the moronic people who say its photo shopped will listen/read what people have written about it.

because this is a panorama, it have been taken in multiple pictures, so one with the lightning and one with the fireworks, or i could be wrong and it could have just been taken with a 180 degree camera.

OMG! Lightning and fireworks happening...AT THE SAME TIME??!!!

Impossible, I say! Impossible.

Therefore, it *must* be photoshopped. (even though it isn`t)

it`s funny how half the people have researched this picture and know and have posted that it is, in fact, not photoshopped, yet, stupid people how apparently don`t know how to read, still insist that is it. Read, you dumb morons.

That was a long sentence.

It is a compilation of three pictures to provide a wide Panorama. These pictures were all spliced together to make this beautiful image.

Despite hoolahawk`s post with links and all that jazz, some of you people are still saying it`s "oviously" (but apparently not obviously) Photoshopped. I guess I should expect that a lot of people just post comments on submissions before readong the other comments so they don`t look so... misinformed.

This is not a `shopped` picture, it is genuine. This makes it all the more amazing. It`s a gorgeous picture and the photographer should be proud of himself! It`s not often you see such beautiful things, all in the same photo.

Just to recap... it is NOT SHOPPED! :D Thank you, have a spiffy Mother`s Day! :D

Explanation: Sometimes the sky itself is the best show in town. On January 26, people from Perth, Australia gathered on a local beach to watch a sky light up with delights near and far. Nearby, fireworks exploded as part of Australia Day celebrations. On the far right, lightning from a thunderstorm flashed in the distance. Near the image center, though, seen through clouds, was the most unusual sight of all: Comet McNaught. The photogenic comet was so bright that it even remained visible though the din of Earthly flashes. Comet McNaught continues to move out from the Sun and dim, but should remain visible in southern skies with binoculars through the end of this month. The above image is actually a three photograph panorama digitally processed to reduce red reflections from the exploding firework.

Photshopped or not (which I believe it isn`t), it`s still beautiful. Lightning is so much better then fireworks.

OR....... Lightning lasts a fraction of a second, and human`s reaction time isnt fast enough to look at the lightning?

1 - it doesn`t matter whether it`s photoshopped or not, it still looks cool.
2 - its not photoshopped, it uses a wide angle lens and a thick filter to give the plasticcy effect. do a little research before you start slagging stuff off.

I was there that night and can guarantee its genuine. It was absolutely amazing with 2 shows going on simultaneously. One natural the other man made with the comet in the middle.

So what if it`s shopped? That doesn`t make it bad. It looks great! Shopping can make things look so much nicer and better so don`t copmlain that it`s been improved! You`d be mad!

could be a really wide angle lens that allows for a panoramic view at once but if not then I think i`m with Tyrizzle on how it was put together

I vote...shopped but not the kind you guys may be thinking...
I think it is most likely a panorama shot..which combines up to 7 images together and thats why it kind of twists.
