Very good shot!! and a good technique too. It is the right exposure and the light is excellent.

So cool!!!! At first I thought it was a split photo. Thanks for the explanation & for taking the time and effort for such a great shot. Fantastic!
Great Photo...beautiful moment captured...difficult to get once again.

Haha, "pondicherry" Willy Wonka reference anyone? Anyway, this is a remarkable photo. What a stunning shot.
Congratulations, Sandip!! Well-deserved recognition for a wonderful shot!!! There is such a mystic feeling to this one. It's amazing.
One question though- How did the light prove to be sufficient when you used f/16? Maybe because the lightning illuminated the landscape at that precise moment?
@Aditya Khare It was taken using long exposure, the shutter was kept open for around 3 and 1/2 minutes. That duration ensured, that I could catch the small residual light present in the sky. The lightning (in fact more than one) happened during that period. The orange glow of the sea is from the illuminated waves that were crashing against the rocks. The place is the rocky beach at Promenade, Pondicherry.
