...no, it's not A. It's not B. Nor is it C. The winner is the newly created D. I really like C, but as you know, I'm a square picture sorta guy so, body-of-work consistency wise, I had to go with a square picture.
IMO, D has the best of both worlds - square + the stripped shadow and the bedroom porch door view.
FTW, thanks for the comments and feedback, re: solving my equivocation dilemma.
