I agree.. I love #1.. I can't seem to get lighting shots to save my life. Though it's kinda hard here since most of the time by the time it reaches us we get the rain before the lighting.

Great shots! I too prefer #1 - there is more lightning and a lot more city lights. It's a lovely balance.

Wow, awesome. Were these long exposures you kept taking until you got lucky to catch the lightning?
