This was shot last night just before sunset.  I used a 10 second exposure at f/11 to blur the fronds.  What do you all think?  As always, I highly value all criticism received here.

I'm jealous.  It looks easy, but still it's a delicate balance, and this one is just right.  Perfect B&W contrasts, and the blur works without attracting too much attention.

That has a seriously nice quality to it!  I love the movement, and the colour tone.  Beautiful!

I would only say that for me, I would have liked to see a bit more of the tree tops.  We live a short walk from the sea front, but it doesn't look like that.

Really well done.  As Jim said a bit more of the treetops would have been nice, but you go with the extent of the lens you have.  Looks like the palm trees are trying to fly!

Thank you all!  I actually had to crop a little bit off the top due to the wind blowing another tree into the picture.  I was really pleased with the tones in the sky.  Shooting palm trees in Hawai'i may be cliche, but I enjoy it every once in a while.  The things never stand still!

I think this image is better for the blurring as it adds a dynamic quality to the otherwise beautiful but serene scene. Very nice!

An excellent example of effective cropping centered on an invisible (but strongly implied) subject!  Nice one indeed, graceful and elegant.
