I’m pretty much in agreement with WCS.

I think you might be able to put 3 of the lightning photos together, the fourth has a different angle.  That would give 3 strikes fairly close together, on the far shore.  They may be too close?   I like the cropped lightning shot.  If you live there, next lightning storm, try the same camera angle with more focal length.  There are probably targets on that shore that attract lightning.

The first fireworks photo looks like the tripod was bumped.  The same scene with no fireworks is over exposed.  The chairs scene is too bright and the chairs look pasted in.  There is quite a strong reflection off the foliage, too.  Try a CP filter when shooting with lots of plants, it cuts the glare.
