    An otherwise dull picture can get some meaning by adding a frame, like a couple of trees, an entrance, a hole through which the pic is taken.

    oddly I would have thought I should have something to offer her... but it seems not

    i don't think this was the kind of frame you meant

    thanks gerard

    I thought I might have had more pictures with obvious use of a 'frame' as in your examples... but it seems to me that my frame is the edged of the image :)


    still here a couple more that might stretch to your concept

    If the 'frame' is part of the scene, then it is ok as far as I am concerned.

    I can live with a little 'pushing'

    With a bit of imagination, one can discern two frames.

    I was thinking the dock crane was framed on each side by the building and the submarine/fence and the ground on the bottom ... three sided maybe?

    I will remove it but given it is questionable.

    I was only asking and had no intention that the photo had to be removed.
    Now you have removed it, I can not give comment how questionable it was :)

    #1 and # 2 are perfect examples.
    #3 is special because the subject is in front of the frame.
    same for #4, but in this case the subject is not wholly encompassed by the frame. On the other hand, IMHO this is the best of the 4 pics.
