Thanks for the votes and comments. Hope all the Aussies sang along with the Gangajang title while viewing. As per usual here is the original exported from LR with nothing but resize:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/32108/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1169531.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/32108/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1169531.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I originally submitted this but then was told I couldn't submit a combined image of lightning strikes as the scene essentially changes.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/32108/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1169532.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/30000-34999/32108/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1169532.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

That's when I found my creative crop of the shot with the most strikes.

BTW I was safely sheltered in a large grandstand overlooking the show ring while the storm passed over us.

Congrats on the ribbon, Michael. Great shot. Great song. The cane fields must be just the other side of those trees.

Nice catch. I imagine it wouldn't of been very reassuring to be stuck inside one of those campers in that kind of weather.
