A Second Chance

Have you ever wanted to go back and have reprints of pictures that meant a lot to you, but maybe didn't get the first time?  Well, I have been given that opportunity and I am in need of some opinions, please.  When we got married I got a bridal portrait to hang in my house, which was hanging in my dining room at the time of our fire.  When we moved back in, it is no where to be found.  Not sure if it was damaged and trashed by the people that came in and cleaned or just lost, but now it is time to replace it.  In the four years, almost five, since I selected my portrait, I have changed my mind on exactly what I want hanging in my house.  I had the traditional stairway, turned around, bridal pose before, but now I am wanting something a little more artsy and less traditional.  I went to my parents today to look at my digital proofs with my mom and we have narrowed it down to a few.  So, now I need the help of my blog friends to help me chose the final one.  

These are the raw proofs that have not been edited, so please excuse the quality.  It will be a 16x20 canvas.  They are in order of my favorites.

I also found a few wedding pictures that would work for the same purpose on my computer.  I need to look at my proof book and make sure there aren't any others I might like better.

So, please leave me a comment and let me know which one you like best!  Remember, I am going for a less traditional, not so posed, artsy picture.

P.S.: I also wanted to show you the other picture I am having made into a 16x20.  We had another traditional, side by side, look at the camera, in the church picture of us both before and now I am ready for something more artsy with this one too.  So, I decided that while I was at it, might as well blow up my favorite to a 16x20...

I really like #4 as well, and I also like #7. Very neat picture. The bottom one of the two of you is beautiful with the night lights. What a neat fun opportunity. I sometimes think I wish I would have ordered a different one as well.

They are all beautiful, but I think #7 is just AMAZING. Looks like it should be in a magazine. I also like #3--I would definitely have a print of the on display. And that one of you & your husband is incredible!
