Basic Photography 101 teaches us that

"Framing is a technique photographers use to direct the viewer's attention to the primary subject of a picture. Positioned around the subject, a tree, an archway, or even people, for example, can create a frame within the picture area. Subjects enclosed by a frame become separated from the rest of the picture and are emphasized. Looking across a broad expanse of land or water at some object can make a rather dull uninteresting view. Moving back a few feet and framing the object between trees improves the composition."

[Navy Training Course on Photography]

The frames need not completely surround the focus of the shot.

An example is shown below:

The coconut fronds frame the sunrise and the beachwalkers but doesn't completely surround them.

You get the idea.

Please put "Framing" in your subject line. Remember, two postings per day and two photos per posting.

Please post your photos as new messages. Do not post them here as responses to this posting.

Thanks and enjoy.
