I am very impressed. Lightning photographs have been done time and time before, but not with such impact as yours, and not with your inventive inclusion of the idea of you peeking through a gap in the trees. Your choice of setting focus on the lightning and leaving the foreground blurred was spot-on; the impact of the lightning is greatly increased. Having the surrounding foliage included in the photograph also achieves the same effect by showing the light caused by the lightning. Furthermore, I like how you've included the hill-line, which adds direction to the photograph. Top-notch; I hope to see more from you!
