To Frame or not to Frame?

A question posed by Ann Christine (Leya), had me thinking of the different ways I have framed images – here are just a few:

Firstly, an arch and a shadow nicely frame the subject-

at the Inner Citadel of the Alcazaba, Málaga

Now for an archway in one Cathar castle forming a natural frame for the view of two other castles in the distance-

View out from the Quertinheux ramparts (to Tour Régine, and furthest away, Cabaret

The trees form a frame for this view of the ruined wing of Godollo castle, Hungary-

…and lastly, the dark clouds forming a frame around a glowing Harvest moon-

  1. What a collection. Diversity of framing encapsulated – hints for enlivening my own photography.

  2. I’m a fan of ‘framing’. Keep up the good work, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. All great ways to frame within a frame – and great photos.

  4. Yours are beautifully framed. Some images need breathing room to show infinity. It depends.

  5. You certainly have the eye for composition Sue. Framing really enhances the view. I 💕 all these

  6. I think a good frame can turn a decent shot into a brilliant one. I love you first and last examples here, Sue. The first one is very clever with its multiple frames, and the last one is very striking.

  7. Great frame gallery, Sue. I know you are a master of this!

  8. I think framing comes naturally to some people, whilst others have to learn. I think I have always tried to create some kind of frame where possible, but seeing other people’s images – like yours – always helps to give ideas. I love the first image.

  9. And the answer to your question is…yes. 🙂 Depends on the shot, I think, but framing often enhances a photo.

  11. It’s always nice to frame an image when you can. Some lovely examples here Sue!
