This is interesting because I had forwarded the picture to
Earle Williams with no comments and he wrote back it was possibly a fake
and what did I thing and why.
So I zoomed in and made him a report of various items as I studied the
picture. He's heading out of country and has not made reply yet with my
"grades". I did note the main channel area in zoom had a wider bright area,
like afterglow but it did conform with the channel path to the top of the
lower clouds. I got the impression it was a positive cloud to ground and
dividing also to a cloud above it. Don't know if that wide bright area
either side of the main channel was camera saturation or not. The area
toward the camera, darker ground, does not show shadows of light from the
stroke direction but the trees closer to the direction of the strike seem
to be lighted more or less as expected.

This lightning picture looks 'wrong' and I wonder if it is a fake. The
lightning colour has a sunset yellow cast. It should be white/violet
unless altered by dust/smoke, exposure or post processing, but it seems
very uniform for this comparing the top vs the bottom of the strike. The
nature of the streamers just doesn't seem right, perhaps not chaotic
enough compared to other lightning strikes. What do you think?
A nice lightning picture:
