Indecisive + Photography = Your Opinion

If there's one thing I've learned from photography, it's that everyone has different tastes. I might consider discarding a shot, only to find out that it's someone's favorite of the set.

I don't think art should be made to please others, but it helps if you ever want to sell it. I'm not there yet (against Addie's & Anders's best attempts), but wouldn't mind to make a penny or two someday.

So I'm curious. Which of these is your fav? (click on the image, then choose "All Sizes" to see it large)

For a striclty stone arch shot I vote #5. however, I do like #1 too.

And yes...I do still think you should start selling them!!

I like #3. The point sources of the light fixtures under the arches catch my eye and distract from the overall photo. (As a former lighting designer, this drives me nuts). I like the perspective of #3.
