What Bit Looks Best With a Figure 8?

I use 4 different types of bits on my horse on a regular basis, depending on his "mood" lol and what we are doing (From trail to jumping). I have a full cheek snaffle, an eggbutt snaffle, a rubber d-ring, and a 3 ring elevator. Any ways, I am having pictures taken tomorrow of my blue eyed Paint and I and I can't figure out which bit would look best. I'm helping my friend expand her portfolio so I want him to look as good as possible. I do have a fancy stitched figure 8 on him but I just cannot decide what bit will look "prettiest" in her photos. And no, its not a permanent thing, it's simply for photos and he is used to all 4 of those bits. Thank you for your vote! :)

(Here iss a pic of him in the figure 8 with the elevator. I really don't want to use this elevator though because its a bit bulky to hold, pose with, etc.)

The eggbutt will be the least bulky of the four and will look the best as it won't stand out a lot. :)
