Cool, you nailed a ribbon much earlier that I did. Both of us with trees, however. Good job.

I wish I had voted in this challenge now that I see this. I would have been a 9 or 10 from me. The symmetry is awesome. Well composed, and congrats on the great result.

Something about the color is off for me. Too dark perhaps? Good perspective. Perhaps a tighter crop. I like the symmetry of the middle row.

loooove this POV. Also makes me want to take a vacation...

I like this crop and orientation but I think I might like it rotated 90 degrees and cropped to include just the tallest Palms.. Very nice any way you look at it.

interesting symmetry that would be tough to achieve. Too bad the sky wasn't totally blue
