If you're the one looking at it and you like it, why not? ;)

I like it & I'd do it....

If you like it, go for it!

It doesn't really fit my personal tastes, but I'm not you, am I? ;)

It doesn't do anything for me, as the birds are both facing away and the faces cannot be seen. However, the only person who knows whether something is suitable to go on your wall or not, is you.

If you like it, and want it on your wall, then it is suitable.

Personally, I'm not a fan of "bird butts" but if you shot it and you love it, then hang it! ;)

There is a lot of "nothing" and even in the second shots the birds are not facing you. I would wait for a better one before I spend on ink and paper.

I think you want to wait for a shot where you have the birds facing the camera, and also fill the frame up a bit more. This shot has too much of the frame with just background. Of course, you are the final judge, if you like it, print it. It costs next to nothing for an 8 by 10 at Walmart.

I've recently discovered a great way to answer that question, IMHO...make it your computer desktop. If you can tolerate that then print it. ;)

Not a bad suggestion, really.

Honestly the first shot I really like. To me the two birds standing near each other look like a husband and wife looking out over the water reflecting on their life, a representation of a life together. Obviously others just see the backside of two birds standing on a rock but that is the cool thing about photography, its all in how a photo speaks to YOU, not anyone else. OP, if you like it print it and hang it!

I prefer the 1st two actually.

An 8x10 at WHCC mounted on board with texture finish is about $10, less than their required minimum of $12 for free delivery. Print several different ones and rotate them in on frame.....

At Costco.com an 8x10 is about $1.50.........for the $10 you can get a decent 20x30. But that would complicate framing. Not to mention a wall big enough to hang one.

Thanks I think I might print them and see which one looks the best. I also have a frame my wife bought that holds 6 of 7 smaller photos.
Thanks for the input and suggestions I like the wall paper idea
