Default The Great Coconut Palm Tree Experiment

While on vacation in Mexico. I decided to try various shots of the Palm trees. Let me know which you prefer.

Cheers, Steve

P.S. I wish I were still there conduction experiments.

Number 2, for no reason other than I like it the best.

I agree number two. The diagonal lead into the shot works best in this as usually that eye will go left to right and this is how the trunk leads you into the rest of the photo. Good exposure too.

The more central ones are just not so interesting.

Thank you both for your input. I was leaning towards #2 myself. I appreciate you both taking the time to comment.

Cheers, Steve

I admire your good taste, still I'd prefer #3 depicting more of the palm branches beautifully stretcing against the sky like the wires of a huge umbrella! Very good exposure, btw.
