There are no trees, branches or leaves in the direct sun light path to the SE,S, or SW.

However, there are 100'+ trees behind the arrays. I believe the images seen in the photo are their reflections. Are these a negative factor or can they be ignored/

    Ever heard this one before: "The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection."
    Or those images of the trees you see on your panel are caused by stray light; they don't represent something between the sun and the panel blocking serious photons.
    Or "No worries." :D

    don't worry about blocked sunlight for you need to worry about falling trees.:cry:
