Can you tell which column is load bearing?

last year

We're hoping to open this space by knocking down the wall to the left (gas fireplace) and hopefully removing the column to the right on the stairs and putting in wrought iron railing to give it a more open feel. Can any of you tell just by looking if either of these are load bearing? We would most definitely hire a professional to make 100% but thought I'd check with all of you first. FYI the column on the stairs seems to be exactly in the middle of the house and this is our first floor (no basement).
