The Big Orca 110 Question

Just got my two first Orca 110 films back from the lab and there seem to be some nice results. But there is a big question: How to crop the pictures? I found various examples on the web, but still couldn't decide which frame is the best. So there are the following possibilities:

Photo by upic

↑ A black frame and a lot of space on the left and right side.

Photo by upic

↑ Without the black frame but still with a lot of space on the left and right side.

Photo by upic

↑ With an even white frame.

Photo by upic

↑ The picture as usual.

What do you think? Which one is the best? Or do you have a better idea?

Thanks :)

    Personally, I like just the picture on it's own. I hadn't even thought about this yet, I'm just waiting on my film coming back from the lab.

    wow.. das Foto an sich ist sehr schön :) mir gefällts am besten ganz normal, kein Rahmen nichts, schaut zwar interessant aus, aber lenkt irgendwie vom Foto selbst ab :P

    Just the picture is my favorite, but sometimes, just to be different, the first option with the black frame is also nice

    I like it with the borders so either of the two first examples is great, maybe the black one is my favorite...

    I'd really prefer the picture alone.... eventually a little border (white or black) that can enhance some photos...

    I prefer only the picture. The ORCA lettering distracts. If I have to choose a frame I go for the first one. My first Orca's come back from the lab tomorrow.

    I told the ORCA lettering distracts, but I scanned them myself. I think it depends on the picture. Your pic is just great. With or without frame !!

    The 2nd and 3rd pic looks more like an instax or polaroid photo to me (of course without the orca writing), while the 4th looks like a cropped 135 b/w photo. I'd go for the first photo. The border gives life and more emphasis on the subject :)

    hope my comment is not too late! hehe
