So I bought a 20×24 printed canvas, and I need to choose what photo to put on it. But choosing is harder than I thought it would be. I’m not really sure what makes a good canvas photo! I want to hang it in the living room, probably with other, smaller framed photos around it. I’ve narrowed it down to eight pictures. Please vote for your favorite! Thank you 🙂 Here are the options, in no particular order:

I love the reflection in photo seven but they’re all beautiful! The texting one is very funny!

All of your photos are gorgeous.
I like numbers 1, 2 and 7 the best though. I’m by no means an expert or anything but for me I think tht a canvas should have a strong focal point. I think #4 is a bit too busy and #6 is a bit too far away. #8 is cute but I think you look the most connected in #1, #2 and #7. #2 is probably my favourite though.

I voted for #3, #7 and #8. They are all lovely and you are a beautiful couple! I think #3 is the best because the lighting is soft and would lightly brighten your room. I like #7 because it is artsy but keep in mind that it is dark, which might be more difficult to match your decor. #8 is really cute and also makes a great art piece, but it is less of a portrait and you don’t see your faces. But all of them would work. It just depends on what kind of style you want to go with for your living room 🙂 (I’m an interior designer if you didn’t notice…lol)

I love #8! Wish it was a little closer but I love it.

@monique_w: Actually I agree, I like #2 too haha. Add that to my list of favorites 🙂
Post # 8
I vote for number 1. I think your expressions are so real and you both look so happy! My second vote would be for number 7, it’s a really good shot 🙂

#2, but you’re going to want to most likely have a solid color edge, as those are shot so tight that a full image wrap will chop off your head.

#2 is my favourite, then #5 🙂

I love 7!! It’s artistic and you aren’t both looking at the camera and smiling, more like artwork! Beautiful pics!

Thank you everyone for the advice!! I guess we need to decide if we want a portrait or something more arty. Very interesting to hear these results; I think I can already knock several off the list!
In #8 we’re actually playing handheld videogames, not texting. Because we are both gamers. I know it’s really hard to tell that in the photo though!
@starfish0116: I didn’t even think about the wrapping cutting us off! Thanks for the heads up! (haha) I have a Groupon, so I’m not sure what options I have for color edge vs. wrap–I will need to look into this.

I vote you do a cluster display of three canvases with #3, #7 and #8.
