One of the lightning shots I got during a storm the other night. I am guessing some might say that this is a lightning shot and not a rain shot, but for me it was cool because I coule see the rain because of the lightning.

Wow, this is absolutely amazing! I thought for sure this one would beat mine. It must have been the same storm. ;-) Congrats!

You've been robbed of a ribbon with this genuinely tough but well balanced capture. Sensitive editing too.

Nice image. Rain, lightning and clouds. Nice and clear. The lightning dominates the image but you can tell that the rain is falling.

Great capture. The coloring of this shot really helps to add a foreboding feeling to it, I think.

Well captured and composed. Great work. Top 3...

Just by capturing lighting alone this shot will do well, but I hope people dont overlook the great color and composition as well.

As I was going through all of the other photos I thought I would like to see a good lighning shot and then yours came along. Very good shot- I personally would have cropped more- but I really like it.

Need to adjust the white balance & crop out the fence/cloud to focus the attention to the source of light.6
