I'd probably try an image that took up the whole space without a matte, something that has a strong subject that fits well in the central pane but very little around the edges that could get entangled with that unique design. I'd probably make a template in PS (would work in elements too) that had lines in the basic proportions of this thing, and overlay it on an image to see how it'd look. I've done that with other window frames to predict how it'll turn out, it really matters where in the image those wooden pieces are gonna end up and it is best to know up front.

You could also have something dominant in the 15" center, then supporting pictures in the other lights. I did Google windows as frames and was mildly surprised to see very few scenics. My take is that we see scenes out of windows, therefore a window used as a frame should frame a scenic, no? That's what I would probably think of first. For example, I could see a kind of a California medley with a redwood in each of the side lights, maybe a coastal panorama in each of the horizontal lights, tight flower closeups in the corners, at least one a California poppy...something on that order.

Google "old windows as picture frames" and there are a lot of fun results, but mostly for windows whose panes are all the same size. Anyone have any brilliant ideas - with or without the flamingo?

Now, how cool is that?! Thanks so much for your time, Bob.
