    Heh...all these thousands of pictures taken and so few put onto paper...

    So I have some 11x14 frames and I was hoping you guys could help me choose 3 (out of these 5) to get printed off. It's hard for me to be impartial after looking through my own photos so much. Maybe none of them? :eek:  If it helps..my decor is fairly plain, with warmer walls. And they won't be displayed together most likely. Which ones do you guys like?

    I like photo number 1 and maybe 2 The others are nice also but not to be hanged IMO (the machu pichu - if I am not mistaken, does not look right in the 11x14 format, the sepia one looks nice but 0% face and the last is cute but the subject is too central and background not helping)

    #1 is my favorite of the bunch. Of the rest, maybe 2 and 3?

    Hmm I do have the same man with more of him and his face but you lose more of the scenery. Worthwhile trade?

    I love 1,3,4 but probably 1,2,3 will make a hit on the walls.

    The one in color has greater presence, and more humanized. -Chrome

    I like #1, but not sure I'd want to look at it every day.
    #2 and # 6 are timeless....#3 is close, but there's just something I can't quite define....I'd go with 2, 6 and 3

    Machine pichu is my first choice as well. I would think some cropping might be in order.

    Second choice is number 1.

    Personally don't like the wave.

    I like #1, but then again.. its your wall and your shots..
    I have some pictures of me and my friends hanging out. Its blurry and make no sense to other people but very meaningful for me.

    I'm interested in how you shot #1. Is that a tilt lens? Or post production tilt effect?

    Heh..zombie thread!

    karl: #1 is a tilt effect, 50mm 1.8 Olympus OM in a tilt adapter mount.

    For those that are curious, I've printed all of them up in some form. The wave as a 4x6to test a new printer, the NY lock as a 5x7 in my office, and 1/3/4 (tilt bokeh street/macchu/peruvian hiker) ended up becoming the 11x14's on my wall. I'm thinking about revisiting the Machu Pichu shot since I have a printer and new 11x17 paper, allowing me a wider crop. Would have to change my matting though. :/
