Unfortunately, I didn't get a single photo I really liked this year. My fault... I rode like crap and the photos are an unwanted reminder of that
However, my parents bought me an awesome frame that holds three photos and offered to buy three photos from my 2012 season. Love them So, I'm picking the 'best of the worst'. I already picked a stadium and a x-country picture, but I still need a dressage photo. I don't really like any of them, so I need help picking one. Which ever photo I buy can be cropped, so keep that in mind
Skip the dressage photo for sure...boring. Pick either of 1 or 2 from here (first two I like best). I'd skip your other xc photo as well and pick these. But then I like ones that are a little different.

Meh. I almost never buy dressage photos! Of all the pictures around my house, two are dressage....one from the three day in which Vernon actually looks pretty cute and almost looks like he's actually doing his medium trot. The other is a blooper reel shot from the same test (and, yes, I framed it!).
I LOVE the cute candid one of the FB photos....or the one in the water.
Nice photos!! My favorite is the water jump. Then the 1st FB pic, then the Brant Gamma XC jump, and if you really want a dressage photo, the other Brant Gamma photo.
I agree with Yellowbritches-dressage photos usually are less impressive in the long run and I'm a DQ-my personal faves are of me doing a water jump and a flying XC jump back in college eons ago, and not the extended trot or pirouette pics--I always pick myself apart when I look at them
I also like the last FB photo, though I'm gonna sound like my mother and say "It's niiice, but I can't see your face!"
Agree with the others. I'm a firm believer in only buying pics that you just absolutely love, so I'd pass on the dressage ones since you clearly aren't sold any one of them. The water pics from facebook are really great, those get my vote.
Unless you are having the pictures matted and framed at a framing shop, it's not a forever decision, right? It doesn't seem right not to have a dressage picture, so maybe just put something else in until the right one comes along.
