Photo to art: Pick one

The perfect shot for a Royal Carribean ad but not for over the fireplace

Since I moved a painting to a better place in another room, I have a big gaping space above my fireplace that needs a piece of art, preferably in tones of blue or green.  I found this great idea at littlegreennotebook on how you can turn photos into art by having them blown up and then mounted on a piece of plywood.  Even I can do this.

So I went looking through my photos and found some that were taken when Brook and I took a Royal Carribean cruise a few years ago.  But I can’t decide which one to choose.  I can make changes with iPhoto and Snapseed if necessary, cropping, straightening, etc.  Take a look at the following pictures and vote for one in the poll below.

The background color of my wall is Simply White by Benjamin Moore and the fireplace is white painted brick with a white wood mantle. Everything else in the room is either white, pear green or dark wood with some blue pillows for something different.  I’m not going for a traditional look in my living room.  I want it to be clean lined, fresh and a bit modern.

Here are the cropped versions:
