I love images of incoming/outgoing storms....the colors seem a bit washed out, i dunno tho, maybe you intended it to be darker? Reminds me kind of "The Dark Crystal" or something.

The power here seems weak to me. a crop might have helped a little bit.

Holy Cow! Awesome color in the clouds and the light 'swishes (that's a technical term) in the grass make it even more interesting.

Wow. This is nice. Perfect timing.

Menacing and dramatic clouds, good lightning bolt, a bit dark on the left

Thats a really nice lightning photo.. Blue tones work very well with the yellow/green ground.
