    I love #1. It’s a lovely one of both of you and the water makes for a lovely background. It’s perfect

    #1 or #7. (Bigger brownie points for #1 than for #7.)

    #6 will translate to an 8×10 crop the best. You will be loosing all the very important details you like in the crop of the others including the waterfall in the current leader #1.

    Just something to think about

    An 8×10 is so small though for over a couch…. I would suggest at least a 16×20 print

    You do have to consider the aspect ratio of the final image.  The images you posted are 2:3, so I would get them printed in a size that preserves that or a portion of the image will be cropped off.  consider an 8×12, 16×24,etc.

    Also, 11z14 is small for over a couch, consider a larger print or putting it on an unobstructed wall where people can better access it.

    Also, if you are going to “add” more pictures to this, typically images look the best side by side on a wall when they are in the portrait orientation.  The only image that would work in this case would be #5

    I agree wtih KLP. When you crop that current leader to an 8×10 you are primarily going to lose the waterfall in the background (see attached best crop) If that’s the photo you love/want, I would consider ordering a 16×24 from your photographer, which will require no cropping at all, and buy a frame for it online. I agree that 8×10 is not a wall print, especially if you plan on putting 4x6s and 5x7s up next to it? I really think prints that small are going to look pretty silly on a wall (pardon my frankness here). You would have to walk right up to them to see what they are even of. 4x6s are for albums and 5x7s and 8x10s are for shelf frames. Can you still return the frame you bought?

    1 or 7 feel the most natural and honest to me.

    #6 top choice- they’re all gorgeous! I love #6 because of the scenery and the candidness of the photo. I would choose #1 though if you would like to be able to see your face 😀
