My wife wants me to print one of my pixs from a foggy day on the coast.....
Never have printed anything yet, so I guess I'll try :roll:
But I just can't decide which....
Can you all help?

Eddie, for me, it's between the first two. #1's more dramatic and #2's more serene. I guess it depends upon the effect you want on your wall.
Tip: Either mount the print with no frame (I have my frameless prints lacquer sprayed to protect them) or if you're going to use glass, have a mat cut professionally (or buy a good store-bought one) to keep the surface of the print away from the glass. Otherwise moisture will condense and "glue" the print to the glass and then the emulsion will separate from the print in those areas.
Beautiful photos! When you have the project complete, let us know how it turned out. Maybe you could show us a photo of the print on the wall.

Eddie, My Pick Is #1.

No. 1 for me. It has better contrast and a little more color.
I like 1 but I would dodge the mid-tones in the foreground a little to keep it from turning black when printed.
You might enjoy having it printed on acrylic to let you slightly alter the appearance every so often by changing the background color slightly. (The acrylic is clear so the wall or background paper shows through).
