This is the Bonsecours market in Montreal as the sun was going down. The glow to the dome is as I remember the scene. I don'y know if this qualifies as framing.

It does qualify since I did specify that the framing does not have to completely surround the focus point/object.

If anything the only problem I found with the picture was the distracting rope or electric line. I know you can't do anything about the line other than remove it with a photo editor.

Thanks for submitting.

Yeah, sorry about the line. It's the only view possible of that building framed, and the electric line is right there in front of it. That's somethng I'd normally clone out but won't do under the rules of the challenge. Like golf, ya gotta play the ball as it lies

Great shot. Too bad about the line but it's not horrendous. I remember the first time I drove through the US southwest desert and everywhere there was a good picture there was also a train track and power lines.

Beautiful shot. The power line is distracting. My feeling is that what I don't know won't hurt me. If you feel competent enough to do a good job of cloning the wire out, and you don't tell us, nobody is going to know. If you were to exhibit a print in a gallery, the visitors to the gallery certainly are not going to know. Now, on the other hand, if traces of the wire remain, or there are other evidences of the editing such as smudging, color mismatches, or "clone tracks" where an artifact is repeated several times along a straight line, then I draw the line.

Yesterday, railroad tracks and telegraph poles are part of the old west and are part of western scenery. You should include them!
