    I took this last weekend and sent it to a buddy of mine and he said I should get a hold of the owners to see if they would want a print. I said I had no idea who owns it. Well with him being in Real estate he sent them an e-mail and now they are curious as to how much for a 16x20 print. I have no clue how much would be fair price as I never thought I could ever sell a photo. Here is said picture. I posted it earlier this week but this one has more contrast to it.

    TBH, I have no idea what that means, and it'll make a difference in my answer.

    Uh, no that's not what I'm confused about, I don't know what you mean when you say you took it, sent it to a buddy of yours and he said you should get ahold of the owners to see if they want a print.

    You... took the image, yes? You own the picture.

    Since you said you never thought you'd be able to sell a photo, it sounds like any price above your cost would be reasonable to you. The question isn't so much what you want for it, but rather what they would give for it. I would say get as much as you can, make sure you don't lose money on it, but since you were taking the photo for your enjoyment, it seems like any money you make is a nice bonus rather than there being a certain price you need to get.
