Fall Colors

This morning my roommate and I did a little photo shoot for our Christmas card photos.

I REALLY wanted a photo with bokeh effect (ie. lots of blur in the background) and have been practicing a ton with my new fancy shamncy camera (which I got for free, but that story is for another day).

Being from the desert, I am so amazed by all the Fall colors in Fresno. Sometimes when I drive by the grocery store or Target (places not known for their scenic views) I stare in awe of the bright yellows and reds of the trees.

Also being from the desert, I don't own any sweaters. I mean real winter holiday looking sweaters. This was the closest thing I have and it's short sleeves. It's one of my favorite colors, though.

I was really happy with the photos. Great sunlight. Great fall colors.

So, I want to use one of these photos for my Christmas card, which will go out to all of my friends, family, and InterVarsity ministry partners (hence the campus shots too). Keep in mind they aren't edited yet.

Help me decide. Which photo do YOU think I should choose?

Number 1:

Number 2:

Number 3:

Number 4:

Number 5:

Number 6:

Happy Fall to you~

I like one, three, and four! How's that for narrowing it down? I like you with the campus signs for your purposes and the leaves in 1 & 3. I like your smile and the sweater in 4. 2, 5, and 6 make me wonder what the blurred-out signs in the background say (but that's just my issue). Although I love your expression in 5. Edit 4's background onto 5's Layla-pose.
I'm such a big help!
Bokeh is a new term for me. See what I learn on your blog?
You do look really pretty. In all of them. And that sweater is a knockout color for you! Okay, I'll sign off...
