Both are well done but personally I sorta give the nod to the second shot.

In my humble opinion the second shot meets the challenge but the first does not. It seems to me that framing is not something that is a part the subject but rather, framing should result from the photographers composition of the shot. This is a tough challenge.

Bill,

Without getting too caught up in details. In the first shot, I assumed Bobbert could have taken the shot without benefit of the foliage. This could be from a stance on the bridge as an example. Thus by stepping backward and using the available foliage which may be growing on the bridge (I don't know) he has in effect added he framing of the foliage.

I could easily be proven wrong but this posting was just simply to give you an idea how I viewed the shot and the use of framing.

Aloha

To add my 2 cents worth, for the second shot I deliberately chose to frame the bridges with the 2 foreground branches and the bush on the left. The first shot was not a deliberate attempt to frame the bridges, but when I looked at it, I htought the bushes on each side and their reflections nicely framed the subject, but only on 2 sides. I'll let the group decide what meets the challenge, but I can say that I printed the FIRST one 8x10 and hung iton my wall.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Thanks for all the comments and feedback. I'm with Bill - this is a tough challenge, and a great one to sharpen the eye for composition!

Bobbert,

Framing is allowed only on two sides even by other challenges (The Canon Group is an example that I just noticed yesterday.)

Selvin,

Sorry, I mis-spoke. Strike the first sentence about if not meeting the challenge.
