The "Nice Storm in the Evening" is well captured, Mat.

I have done a modification where I cropped square, to place the lightning on a thirds line, and to give more prominence to the lightning and the tree, the main elements in the frame.

Brightening the image brings out a lot more detail in the tree, and shows the stepped landscape better, which is an attractive element, too.

There's an old technical formula for great news pictures - 'f/8, and be there!'

And that's what you needed, and did, for this shot.

It takes a bit of luck and probably a lot of exposures to achieve this kind of result - well doen for persistence and anticipation.

All you need to add is a little bit of polishing, of the sort that Pamela has done, to tighten the image. That version woudl be a sure vote winner in the main gallery.

Via a translation site:

Il y a une vieille formule technique pour de grandes nouvelles photos - 'f/8, et d'être là !"

Et c'est ce que vous avez besoin, et n'a, pour cette photo.

Il faut un peu de chance et probablement beaucoup d'expositions pour réaliser ce genre de résultats - et de la persistance et de l'anticipation doen.

Tout ce qu'il vous faut pour ajouter un peu de polissage, de la sorte que Pamela a fait, pour serrer l'image. Cette version serait un certain vote gagnant dans la galerie principale.
