decent image but lacks a bit of interest for me. You used the rule of thirds which i think works well, and it is a good sihouette.. but it stops there... it is just a silhouette, it doesn't encourage me to look longer, it doesn't produce a feel for me. I am not sure what whould help this image. perhaps it is too cut and dry.. like the whole plant is included in the picture.. perhaps if just the leaves were in the image, or hmm i am not sure what to say. it is a decent image though, and nice exposure in the strong sunlight.

This is a really nice shot. It might be even more interesting if you crop out the bottom 15-20% of the image to remove the lawn. Nice job!

I did kind of the same shot there is something about trees reaching into sky well done...

Sun Star is effecrtive for this shot. Nice sky and clouds. Due to the merger with the trees behind, you can't tell how the palm's trunk goes from narrow to wide at the base.
