Welcome!

#1 on left in photo: I can't see the leaves clearly but the tree with variegated foliage reminds me of Weeping Fig (Ficus benjamina 'Variegata')

#2 on right in photo: Maybe a variety of Agaves (Agave)

Thanks, however I upload a better image, hope this helps you to see leaves.

Not exactly. If you download and inspect them you can see the difference. I expect the second was the original and the first was a more compressed version (for low bandwidth sharing).
As seen in the post, they are the same. But if you zoom into details like leaves, the less compressed one preserves a tiny bit more detail.

I don't think it is enough more detail to effect the ability to make an ID.

I think folks need to see a close up detail of the leaves; maybe something similar to this:
Sometimes we need to see the leaf arrangement - alternate or opposite. Sometimes we might need to see the back of the leaf, or the stem, etc. Detail is important to obtain a decent identification.

Ok, I understand.

I upload three new and detailed images with higher definition. You can zoom in and I hope quality is enough

It still looks like a variegated variety of Ficus benjamina to me. Hopefully others will be along soon with suggestions.

Im not positive, bit it doesn't look quite right for a ficus - mostly because the leaves look too tiny and the twigs are reddish - most ficus have light gray to tannish twigs. The growth tips don't look quite right either, but I can't see a tip well enough to full make that distinction.

I'm glad others are offering suggestions because with my bad eyesight I just wasn't sure. Here are some links to our database with photos of Variegated Euonymus for comparison:
Golden Euonymus (Euonymus japonicus 'Aureo-Marginata')
Wintercreeper (Euonymus fortunei var. radicans 'Emerald Gaiety')
Japanese Spindletree (Euonymus japonicus 'Silver King')

FYI: We only have the click to enlarge, members don't download to zoom in so the closeup shot is better. Any full size images automatically get resized when uploaded so higher definition doesn't matter.
