Lucky enough to have this small storm offshore tonight. I had to play with the levels a bit to rectify overexposure due to moonlight. Slight use of colling filter - sharpening and noise reduction. But no adding of any anything that was not there.

Well done. Captured a soothing effect.

Great capture - especially getting two strikes visible (or one large one coming out of the top of the cloud too). Excellent.

I like this capture. I think it might work better, however, without the sun in it, as that distracts. You might want to consider some crops of the upper portion.

Lovely shot! Not sure but I think a slight crop at the top just so there was still a hint that the moon was there would have helped a bit. Well done.

Well composed. Contrasts tranquility of the Blue Moon and calm sea with the drama of the distant thunderstorm. Great timing. Wonderful shot.

Ooooh....! Nice. This looks like a painting! Very beautiful. Interesting very slight lens flare in the upper right, kind of looks like a one-color rainbow. A moonbow?! :-)

I've only given three 10's in this challenge, this is one of them!

WOW! This is awesome. It looks like the horizon slants a little. There is a good tutorial here that tells how to fix that. Colors are wonderful. Quite emotive. The rainbow shaped line makes it look like it was taken through a car window maybe?
