Lens-artist’s Photo Challenge # 66: Fill the frame

These days when I’m out and about, I can find it tricky to fill the frame as I use a prime lens, and can’t ‘zoom  with my feet’ these days. Sometimes it works, sometimes I have to crop fairly heavily…

Flowers and Still Life and scenes are a different matter, fine filling the frame!

So here are some examples – I loved the light in this one:

I was very close to this Cuban lady, using a wide angle lens, and filled the frame effectively:

Flowers can obligingly fill the frame:

This one was a scene I saw from a moving Tuk-tuk in Lisbon, and the man, café table and bike filled the frame perfectly

  1. Great examples, Sue. And don;’t feel bad about cropping – I often do!

  2. Great examples, Sue, of filling the frame. The colors and texture of the flower are marvelous. I am really drawn to your last shot. It brings back memories of the cafe culture there.

  3. Love the mixture & light

  4. The light in your opener is definitely stunning!

  5. Great shots. The first and last are my faves.

  6. Lovely images Sue, the first looks as if it was set up just for you 🙂

  7. Love your choices, Sue. The first is a real beauty 🙂 🙂

  8. All good choices, Sue. As you know, I love that cafe shot, such wonderful light!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  9. Great shots, Sue. The last one is really awesome. 😎👍

  10. That first one is so serene and inviting. A lovely photo.
