The hardest part was getting the bolt of lighting. Then I Cropped, contrast, lighting, cloned out 3 spots on the right side just above the tree, and added text.

As impressive as the lightning capture is, I would prefer a different composition. If you had the pixels to work with, maybe having the lightning biased slightly to one side of the frame, or rotating the canvas to give a different angle for the bolt. The centered composition doesn't work here imho. Great capture though.

great timing, did you try a bit more contrast to brighten the outer branches and darken the sky.

Brilliant image, pity the text is a bit...."Word Art". The text looks stuck on without much thought of position or font..... so -1 for the text

Title and picture go together. Well done.

Since you've chosen to use text as part of your final composition, I've got no choice but to judge you on it... word art just isn't working as a CD cover this decade. The photo itself is very difficult to focus on with the water droplets everywhere.

nice shot. i kinda like the rain drops too. they add something extra to the shot texture wise.

Wow, nice capture! Looks like it was shot through a wet window. I'm not sure, but I think the out of focus water drops detract from the image.

Really good photo. The droplets add a really nice effect. I'm not really keen on the text effect tho.
