I really love this. I was one of your 10's and I'm surprised there weren't lots of them.

Lightning shots are hard to get. Stopping down a bit more would help eliminate that haze you've got going on (unless of course the haze is from multiple strikes, in which case you'd have to close your shutter earlier, and before multiple strikes occur). Of course, the more unobstructed the view the better.

This is a nice lighting image, though I believe there is too much white-space at the top of the image. A tighter closer crop to the lighting and where there is the most interest may have made this a stronger overall image.
