Hi there, Joe-

I like #2 and #3 a lot. What WB were you using? I am guessing it might have been AWB as there is a lot of yellow in the #1 photo.

Nice shots. What was your shutter speed for the lightning shots?

Joe - Excellent photos - your lightning shots are striking!
Looks like you took a strike to the body on #4
