I have recently taken these shots. I would like to have either one of these pictures printed out. What does POTN think?

I really like #3, though I think the white object on the right is a little distracting. Is it a light house? I think this is a very peaceful scene, and I like the color. The other photos are nice too, but for printing I would go with #3.

So far as I can see in the posted images there aren't any issues with the image files you are planning to print.

I think your dilemma is primarily related to things like printing yourself or having a professional service print them and issues like what color space to use, etc.

You might want to post them in RAW, Post-processing, and Printing, or there may be someone on this forum willing to tackle those issues.

Either way, there is a sticky named FAQ and Important Links which is a great place to start.

I believe I'd hang those on my wall any day! LOVELY shots. The first photo looks like something out of one of the first 3 star wars episodes. Forgive me, I've never been to Northern California.

i'd print 3...they are all print worthy...

but if i were you, and i was hanging it in my house, i'd want something that doesn't look a lot like many other S.F. type shots...if you had those hanging, nobody would really know you took it aside from yourself...the third one may have people saying wow, where'd you get that...and you can say i took it, and be all least that's the way my mind thinks
