Running Lean?

I feel kind of lame for asking this, but can you tell me if these show any type of lean condition? The tips look a little white to me but are fairly clean... Basically I just want to make sure I'm not running lean. The first one was identical to the rest, just looks less white since there was no flash.

Pictures show spark plugs as follow:

1
2
3
4






Thanks for the help!

Maybe a little bit, but I feel like the flash is playing with it too. They should be a mocha color.

The first one is the best representation of the color, but it had a white-ish hue to it (maybe not as emphasized as the flashes show).

Plugs are hard to read in these cars because of ^

They look just like mine do, if that helps you at all.

with that much soot on the base.. no.

a lean one will look visibly overheated, and have specs all over it that look like welding splatter.

the electrode IS the hottest part of the plug, and will clean, first.
that, and the DIC deliberately burns the carbon off after you shut it down.
