    What (kind of) photos would look great on a white border/wall?

    Hi all

    Personally I feel the Landscape photos - especially the one that is taken around the dawn/dusk - looks better inside a black border or on a black wall.

    I am just thinking - what photos OR what kind of photos, will looks good on a white wall?

    Any idea?

    Nice, colourful flower shots always look great on a white wall.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    I agree with the flower one above. I have a photo of a sugar gum blossom macro shot against a white background. When framed in a white frame (& matt) on a white wall, it stands out brilliantly. I'd also suggets architectural type shots, especially if they're a bit abstract.

    I do like William's white borders, and think they would look good on a black wall.. And black on white walls.

    Anything looks great on a white wall. I should know - I've got them too. Depends on what feel you want to give the room.

    I personally love strong b&w images in black frames on white walls.
