    I recently did a photo session for my big dorky brother and his amazingly beautiful wife as an anniversary gift, and I would like to print a large 16x10 of one image to frame and give them on the day of their anniversary!

    I've narrowed it down to a few of my favorite, but can't seem to choose.. If I can pick one, I may just print the others in 5x7 size. What are your opinions? Thanks so much!

    I like the feel of #2.

    As a matter of personal preference, I don't like the bouquet in 1, 3, and 5.

    The angle in number 4 bothers me even more than the look on your brother's face, and the last one is OK, but doesn't give the impression of intimacy that #2 does.

    I really like 2 and 5. I personally find 2 the best, but not knowing your brother, I am not sure how comfortable he would be having that more intamate side showing for all to see.

    I also fine the last image appealing but I am not sure if it's the compression from shinking it or what but she seems to be a bit blurry.

    Thanks for the replies so far =)

    I'm leaning more towards number two, but I know that my brother's wife is partial to the 4th picture for some reason- goof expression and all lol. An explanation about the flowers, they were the actual bouquet she carried at their wedding, silk roses- so they were a special part of the shoot and we tried to incorporate them into several different shots.

    Oh, and they brought along the third member of their family, Pedro LOL

    The whole session was a lot of fun =) Thanks everyone for your input, I'll check back this evening before I make the final decision!

    Here is another vote for #2.

    At such a large size it may be easier to display a horizontal photo/frame than it would be to display a vertical one. Just a thought!

    I actually like #1, if he wasn't wearing that T-Shirt. It simply looks out of place. And I keep seeing it in every picture.

    I like number 5, and also the last shot, with the two of them holding little Pedro.

    I don't like number 5 it looks childish. Like they are siblings not lovers. I actually really like number 6 because it shows they are truly lovers.

    oohh I like the last one witht eh dog as well. That would be nice even though it is verticle, because it's their little family.

    Out of these, I like number 6. Only because, they look comfortable and you can see both of their faces.

    I wouldn't

    What some do not understand is that digital has nowhere near the resolution of film; you are trying to stretch (at best) 4800 pixels to 16 inches - 300 dpi (at best) and this is NOT what you want for a wedding photo (it's Ok for snapshots, 4 x 5's; but you are stretching the resolution a bit)

    Digital cameras are snapshot cameras; we have printers that do 9600 dpi; that means 7.4 gigapixels for your 16 x 10; film can do this, digital can not (hiowever 300 dpi may be acceptable to you)
