Haven't been getting out much these days. Saw this out the window and had to take a shot. It's only 6 trees (ok, technically 8), but I think voters will take issue with the busy (but gorgeous) sky. Ah well. I might not get another chance to shoot.

Love the "mare's tails", and the lanky palms compliment them nicely. Even the background behind the palms cooperated to accentuate the trunks because of you using a low point of view. B&W is good for this too, because the interplay of shapes and light and dark are what makes the shot.

I'm fascinated - what a wonderful combination of lines and things. The implied "land" is perfect imo! 8

Powerful. <From Abby...the sky is scary creepy. The palm trees are nice. The bottom clouds looks like a wave, as if the ocean is in the background. I kind of like it. Good job on the rest, the sky is scary.>
