Time to Pick the Postcards! (need advice)

Kat Sloma sponsors a wonderful world-wide art exchange called "Liberate your Art." The idea is simple - print up five postcards featuring your art, send them to Kat, and in return you'll receive six post cards from other artists. I've participated for a couple of years and really enjoyed it. If you want to sign up, check out this link. 
I'm doing photographs this year, but I've done mixed media in the past. I'm in the process of selecting the images I plan to print up. I like to do five different images, but many people just print up one. Here are ones I definitely plan to use. 
I think each of these will look really good on a 4x6 post card, and I am proud of each one as a photograph. I want to include one more image, and I want it to be from the plum harvest series. Which of the following do you think I should use?
#1 plums on a fence:
#2 plums in a basket:
#3 harvest basket:
#4 basket on the lawn:
Thanks for your help, and let me know if you're going to join the swap. The more the merrier!

I think my fave plums are plums on the fence#1 but I also love the plums in the basket#3 some really gorgeous photos there

Eileen T said...

My favourite one is #1.

I really like the other photos you have chosen - a fantastic set of images.

The plums in the basket is my choice - gives a feeling of the richness and fullness of harvest and the weathered wood behind is a great foil. My absolute favourite is your second one from the top - that rope against the slightly grunge-urban background is a stunner.

Those first four images will all work well as postcards. As for the others, I think I like the plums on the fence best. Great composition and interesting contrasts.

Plums in the harvest basket (the first of the basket photos) is my favorite. I have my photos chosen but haven't ordered them yet.

I am participating in the swap. Haven't even given a thought to what I will use yet. I like the plums on the fence best - it's just different!

Plums on the fence definitely! These will all make wonderful postcards.

It's a tie between the dog peering over the fence and the knot. Both are unique.

Plums on fence.

I like both the plums on the fence and the plums in the basket - in both cases seeing the texture behind the plums is so pretty.

#1 plums on a fence; stunning! (I love fence texture!)

Chipper Newman said...

Number one is my fav, but they are all still lovely photos and the colors would print up beautifully.
