Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge #60: Framing the Shot

Over time, I have use different framing devices, to lead the viewer in. A recent trip to Standen saw me using doors

…and here at St Dunstan in the East I’ve used an arch:

There was a time when I used to use any available foliage – an avenue of trees frames a figure walking into the distance:

Late winter in the gardens

while here, some overhanging trees and shadows frame the decaying peatery building:

And finally, a tunnel frames the distant hills

  1. All of these work so well Sue, but my favourite is the arch 😀

  2. Amy

    I love this collection of framing. Each presents unique yet beautiful ways of framing. A great photo framing lesson to learn here. Thank you so much, Sue! 🙂

  3. My favorites are the first two which use multiple similar shapes that add both interest and depth and that last one with the tunnel.


  4. Great examples of framing, Sue. I really was drawn to the “arches” shot and your black and white images.

  5. Interesting that both photos and writings need frames.

  6. I really like 1 and 3, Sue. 🙂 🙂 Funny what works for each of us.

  7. I like the variety – and the ending one – that cave! – was my fav

  8. Oooh, I love this technique
    Great photos, all of them

  9. All terrific examples Sue but the arches stole my heart on this one!

  10. Oddly Sue, my comment earlier didn’t come through. Spam??? In any case, I commented that I loved all of your examples but the arches shot is the one that stole my heart! Nicely done.

  11. That tunnel shot is outstanding, especially as it was almost certainly shot on film, using your experience and skill. So hard to get that exposure balance, without ‘whiting out’ the landscape in the distance.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  12. Brilliant gallery … one of the image (I was there too) … I love the image from St Dunstan.

  13. So beautiful examples, Sue – but I think you know the Arch is my favorite!

  14. Beautiful photographs, Sue. Perfect for the challenge..

  15. Excellent perspectives and points of view.
