Well, Ishino, I don't think you've got it. In this case, you have shot what is obviously an old window opening on the side of an old building with another building built against it. The brick frame is the actual window frame. What Selvin is looking for is a situation you adjust your shooting position or zoom range so that your subject is framed by tree branches, or positioned between two trees, under a bridge, etc. In other words, nearby objects that are not part of the subject can be used to "frame" the subject. Try reading the challenge description again and look at photos others have posted. Also, read the comments made on those photos.

Your use of the brick "frame" as an example is as Cal noted not the normal framing technique that pops to mind when talking about the use of framing in composition.

I think what's working against you is the the subject of the frame doesn't seem to be worth framing. I suspect there's more to this shot than meets the eye but it is not obvious.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.
