Here lies my weakness
I actually prefer it in the 3rd and 4th picture much more than the 1st. It just looks so much more like a palm tree. I don't prune green off mine anymore but I used to be The Worst. I would prune as many as 20-25 green fronds of Trachys (when I first started all this) to make them look like they had a P. dactylifera-type of majesty. I know-crazy. I prefer a full crown now but I honestly don't like fronds all the way to the ground on Trachys.
