Need some opinions guys

Ok here's the deal I loved this shot because of the stern look on moms face and the totally submissive body language and facial features of the yearling. BUT! The problem was if I cropped it into 8x10 format to print I got way too much garbage in the pic and lost what I wanted to feature..the deer.
My solution was to have it printed in a larger 15x8 format which will increase my cost and the buyers.
Do you think the print will be attractive enough to generate sales? In other words is it one you would hang in your house?
Sorry to be polling you guys but I respect your opinions and who would know better what they like sportsmen or yuppie tree huggers?

Thanks

Griz

Re: Need some opinions guys

Griz, I like the picture and it would make either a good home or office print for a outdoorsman or nature lover. You do real good work and I enjoy looking at your photo's when you post them. As always, thanks for sharing your talent and eye with the camera.

Re: Need some opinions guys

Griz,
first off, great picture
second, yes, i think it will generate the sales. Let's keep in mind, not everyone has room for a large square picture, this one will be more of a "widescreen" so the available area to hang it increases for some. Not to mention, the shape itself should help it stand out.
Just curious, do you have a site where you sell your prints? I'd love to see them all!

Re: Need some opinions guys

Griz,I think the size of the print is great.The main factor you are attempting to relay is the dominant look on moms face and the submissive yearling.tHAT IS THE VERY THING THAT PULLS MY ATTENTION WHEN LOOKING AT THE PIC.I would most assuredly hang one in my basement.....JUST KIDDING!It would have a place in my den for sure.

Re: Need some opinions guys

griz,

there is a cool web site that will auto place the border and text for you motivator creator you can make em funny, serious or whatever you want...

Re: Need some opinions guys

I guess it depends on the persons perspective, some people would like things with subtle humor on their wall and some wouldn't, I would..

Re: Need some opinions guys

Pa Hunter 1, thats great! It gave me a good idea. Thanks, I may do them with and without the frame and message.

"do you have a site where you sell your prints?"

Not at the present time. I do the arts and craft shows in the summer and because I have recently decieded to market my photographs more to the public this year I plan on attending more shows.

Thanks for the comments and interest everyone
