Congratulations on your 6+ finish! The clouds add a lot of interest to this photo, and the curve of the frond is very strong.

I really like this, but I have to admit I am partial to palm trees.

I might have cropped 1/4 off each the left and top (to keep the ratio and to strengthen the diagonals.) But, on the whole, it's a clear and pure image that I really like.
