***Mini Challenge #535: Framed

Mini-Challenge 534 begins now and ends Sunday March 3rd, 2019, at 5:00 PM EST.Australia.

The Theme is Framing. By that I mean images which have been shot through an opening to create a "framed" border around the image. The opening can be something like a  window, windscreen, arch, vegetation, opening or hole - either naturally occurring or man-made.

I suggest that the "frame" surrounds at least 2 sides of your image for maximum effect.

No composite images which have had the frame effect added in after the shot in PP.

Please:
1. Submit a maximum of 3 Entries to win and/or as many Exhibits as you wish.
2. Photos must have been taken by you but can be from any camera, including cell phones, and may have been taken at any time.
3. Please state very clearly in the header of your post whether an image is an "Entry" or an "Exhibit". Non-labeled submissions will be assumed to be Exhibits.
4. Please post all Entries and Exhibits using the "Reply to thread" button below this first post. Comments can be made directly to the Entry or Exhibit post.
5. At the end of this challenge, I will announce First, Second and Third places from the Entries in a separate RESULTS thread, and I may select some of the exhibits, for Honorable Mentions.

The "lucky" First Place winner has the dubious honor of hosting of the next challenge. If the winner doesn't respond post a new Challenge within 3 days of the date results are posted; or has to decline to serve, the Second Place winner becomes the next host. If that individual declines to serve, the Third Place winner becomes the next host.

I look forward to viewing your creative images. Good luck!!

Michael

Re: ***Mini Challenge #535: Framed- Exhibits

Below are some examples of images which I have "framed" using a window, windscreen, structure and vegetation.

The options are endless. Have fun.

Entry 1....Arty-farty European Goldfinch
2

I spotted this through the trees while out in my garden hoping to get some bird-in-flight shots of the little birds. This is posted straight out of the camera size wise; it crops fine but I prefer the image with all the out-of-focus vegetation which provides a natural frame.

Regards,
David

Re: ***Mini Challenge #535: Framed - Exhibits

Neat subject Michael. Here’s a few exhibits to help get the ball rolling.

The first three were taken on a cruise and driving visit to the Pacific North West in 2016.

Arriving in Juneau on a cool wet morning...

Our first glimpse of a glacier in Glacier Bay

Salmon swimming through the fish ladder at Bonneville Lock on the Columbia River

And for something completely different...

The Silver City Comet on display at the Sulphide St Railway Museum, Broken Hill, NSW

Re: ***Mini Challenge #535: Framed - Exhibits

Nice images from the cruise ship, particularly the second one. I like the salmon window. Good sense of scale and interest with the people looking on.

Silver comet a good take on the theme.

Interesting  set. Thanks.

Re: Entry 1....Arty-farty European Goldfinch

Yes, I saw this shot in your other thread. Agree that looks best uncropped- gives image nice sense of depth. Beautiful looking bird too. Nice image.
