Well, I suppose every photographer has a limit to how much bad weather they will tolerate! Your fine classical composition offers us a dramatic look at your location. Exposure and sharpness are good. Well done and good luck!

A very nice lightning shot. The light in the clouds is excellent and the colors are very good. I like that there is enough light in the sky to silhouette the trees on the right side. Good luck in the contest.

A nice capture of a lightning strike in the distance, in the lower center of the canvas.
Some details in the darkness of the trees.
You might consider cropping in on the left side of the image about 1/6 of the width to give more perspective to the image.

This is a very dramatic looking night time shot, and you have indeed captured the lightening in the sky well. It is standing out so well against all the darkness.

The silhouetted foreground is standing out sharp and well defined against the sky, and also the exposure is very good.

I do however think the composition could be better balanced. I think you have too much space at the top, and my suggestion is to crop quite a bit at the top, and perhaps also just a tad on the left. Still I think this is an all together lovely and well taken photo, and I wish you luck with the contest.

You've captured an interesting picture here indeed,my friend!
It's Dramatic and Ominous tone comes through wonderfully!
It's a delightfully Out of the Ordinary scene and a really 'Good Show' of a picture! : )
