    thanks for the comments and voting. after reading comments i did a version with the road work sign cloned out, and tried a different crop. they looked good but i doubt it would have changed the outcome of the voting at all. honestly i didn't think this was a very strong entry. i took it while driving and there is even some reflection from something on my dashboard on the lower right corner that i didn't notice. had me looking at tree shadows everywhere i went for the following few days.
thanks again.

    Love the shadows in the road but there are too many other small distractions. GL.

    I like this one... the lighted columbs go well with the shadows from palms... the road word sign is a bit distracting

    Very definitive shadows, lots of colours and a nice perspective.

    Good find. It would have been nice without so many distractions. The shadows almost look like a painting as you suggest. A colourful, well balanced image.

    Suits to the theme, beautiful view, my first choice.

    Although I'm not keen on the distractions (bright road signs etc.) I do like the very dramatic and sharp shadows.

    Great shadows from the trees. Consider a tighter crop that emphasizes the shadows more - they're the most interesting part of the picture.

    Striking image with the monotone shadows clearly the subject. Only quibble is the softness of the focus. I see your high shutter speed so assume it must be focused for the trees rather than their shadow.
