    I want to print one of these pictures and frame it for my parents for christmas. Now, before you tell me they aren't good enough to print, I know that, but they will think they are great and will love it regardless. Please vote for your favorite, discounting the city shot. Thanks!

    Wow, you actually made Tucson look nice.....Is that San Xavier mission?

    Never mind that question, I went back and actually read your post. that helps a lot. I like the different angles. Not just the usual frontal view of the mission.

    yeah, we did go to San Xavier as well but there were a lot of people so I had a hard time getting anything interesting.

    I'm also interested in printing one of these to give to my parents for christmas. I know they aren't amazing pictures that are truly print worthy, but they will love it because it is something I made, and it won't cost a lot to do.

    So, does anyone have a pic that would be the best one?

    I would print Photo 5 "lonely" personally. I'm not sure what matches your parents' taste more, but I get a general feeling of calm looking at the photo. It is well composed and the field of warm and muted colors convey pleasant weather and relaxing times, and the blue interruption from the window gives the photo a sense of depth while keeping the image simple.

    Oh well. I like 5 and 6. It is pretty how you used the window in 5. Nice shots though.

    OH MAN!

    I didn't even notice that shadow. I easily could have shot another cross and got rid of the shadow, but I really wanted those flowers.

    And I don't know what you mean about #6.... I think it is underexposed, are you saying it doesn't look good or that everyone has done that shot once?

    The shot of downtown from the mountain.

    I usually made it a point to get up there at least once a year.

    #5 would be my second choice.

    The first one has a brilliantly blue sky. Doesn't matter to me if it is simple. It does seem to have more impact if I do not scroll down to include the mission's wall. Took the liberty to do a screen capture and crop using "Rule of Thirds".
