Hi William,
This is certainly eye-catching. I can see why it attracted you. As something to linger over, however, or come back to, or draw in the eye, it's not as engaging as your earlier posts. Perhaps because it's pretty straightforward, without a reveal?
Enjoy your shooting,
Scott

Aah!! Scott, my first "mercy-post"!

I am sure you saw this poor post with zero comments and felt sorry for me! ;)

Thanks, perhaps the light doesn't show here as well as it does on Lightroom at home. It caught my eye and continues to do so.

Thanks for taking the time...

William

I think as an image it stands pretty well on its own, but with the caption leading to a 'story', it makes perfect sense!  I love the visual of the 'lightning' forks creating the bloom of pink at the bottom.  Moses would be proud!

Thanks Mike, that is pretty much the way I saw it.

No mercy, William!  :) Just trying to work out what makes an engaging picture or not.
