Help Me Choose A Main Photo For My Site, Please.

It's about time to redo my website. I'm more interested in back-end development so my 'Client Area' is going to be where most of my attention is focused but that's no reason to have an ugly front-end. I'm thinking I want to do a parallax scrolling effect for the redo. I want to showcase my photography as that is where most of my freelance work comes from now as compared to print design.

These are the images I plan to choose from. I was thinking one of the landscapes (toward the bottom) would be the best choice for something like this. I feel like the portraits would be too distracting as a main landing image but I was hoping to get some opinions from others.

A pre-emptive thanks for the input guys!

I agree with portraits being too distracting. How about using the Arizona Sunset shot?

Thanks for the input guys. Unfortunately those were two I was already having trouble choosing between. That just makes it tougher. I'm hoping one clear winner begins to emerge.
