FRAME THE SHOT-CHAT-Weekly Comp 7-14/8
« on: August 07, 2016, 01:23:36 PM »
This week's challenge is 'Frame the Shot'. In this context it means use part of a scene to frame the rest of it/the central or main subject. Obvious frames would be windows, doors, or overhanging branches.It does not mean get your favourite editor to add a border to your image.  ;)

This is the CHAT thread

The ENTRIES thread is here:


Pictures to be taken preferably between now and Sunday 14th August 2016, 23:59, or enter one from your Personal / Camera Cranium Archives if you prefer.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59pm Monday 15th August 2016.
Poll will be up Tuesday 16th August 2016.
Winner to be announced Saturday 20th August 2016.

The Rules for the weekly competition are...

By entering you agree to take responsibility to

Post a topic on the Sunday (or sooner) following your declared win
Create an entries thread
Create a chat thread
Create a poll for that weeks comp and declare the winner on the Saturday
(if for any reason there is a problem and no subject is posted by the winner by Monday night admin will advise second place winner to post the topic asap, do the poll etc)

In case of a tie, the first entry posted (or earliest archive shot if applicable) wins.

I like this subject - If I can't get a 'fresh' image, I have the perfect one from my archives. Hope I can get out though, cos I love looking for this kind of shot. It's surprising how many natural frames there are, once you get your mind around what to look for and start to look.

We have a monument near us 'Penshaw Monument' and in the woods nearby, theres a perfect shot where, no matter what time of year, you can get a shot of the monument, perfectly framed by some tree branches. I always mean to get a spring, summer, autumn and winter shot of the same view, for a tetaptych. but never get the time, or forget, or the weathers not right when I try.

I hadn't planned on doing the framed by trees and shadow cliché, but it just happened to be right in front of me. This is former home of the music hall star Josephine Baker



The chateau is currently being restored, but has displays of her memorabilia throughout. There is also a falconry centre - I'll post a few shots from there, hopefully tomorrow, but as usual in the summer there are guests to attend to first :)

One from the archives here on CC. was taken in 2009. Been a bit busy will try to do better.

I had a nice one, from the archives, but, it was framed by trees. After H's comment, I decided not to use it.

I had another one, a bit different, from my 'volunteer records' from last Wednesday. In fact just a snapshot, with the focus in the wrong place, so it would not have been my first choice, but ...

I 'tarted it up,' in the hope it would look like an old picture from the Stalinist archives. Not quite sure what to call it, but, I may go with 'Slave Labour.'

One from the archives. The Olympics taking up far too much time!

Im in with one from my archives,I took for a similar theme a while back. My car is off the road for a week or so, so restricted to where I could get to. Hence an archive shot.

A quick hand held grab, in the shadows of evening light.
