Default POTN G-series Speed Challenge #369 - Frame Within a Frame

Challenge #369 - Frame Within a Frame
________________________________
I'm going to steal from my daughter's photography class for this weeks contest. One of my favorite genres, frame within a frame. Set up a shot that has an existing frame around your subject within the shot. I love strong graphic elements.

Examples here if I didn't explain it well enough:

ryanshoots, 11ft 8in; I really like this one nice use of black and white it's simple but it still carries a lot of interest.

Car, Side, Turkey; This one really grabbed me but it's a little washed out. Bringing down the exposure just a tad really brings out the blue skiy and white ruins

mrshobden, Ted Islands In The Bay Inside A Tree! aka Tree Fungus; Great color and organic random shapes

substitute, MoMa, NY Feb 2012 Canon G3; This is such a different take on the genre. First I really liked it then I seemed to object to myself that it's not really frame in frame, but then I come back and have to admit that it might well just be outside my limited interpretation but not outside the concept. I applaud you for seeing it.

Kevan, City Island Cottage, The Bronx; I like this (and had no idea such a place existed in the Bronx) just a little to busy to really focus my attention

teekay, Under The Bridge Under the Fog; Very strong image for me maybe crop lower with more water and let the second support frame the third.

marie, Heavy Metal and beyond; great converging lines on the gate and the little splotches of color are nice accents.

Maureen Souza, St. Paul's Entrance; really nice colors maybe to broad a crop to get me focused

USMCWayne, Granbury, Texas; tough light in this one and you managed to hold it together. I always love stone buildings

Results
1st- ryanshoots
2nd- Car
3rd- substitute

thanks everyone for your participation I'm looking forward to a new week

Congratulations Ryan, Car & Substitute and thank you Paul for a brilliant hosting & judging job!

Maureen - I must say what a delightful entrance to a church - fabulous opportunities for wedding photos I imagine!

Marie - loved the metal gates leading off into the distance.

I was also loving Teekay's bridge picture too....in fact, a good selection of photographs overall, I liked them all !

Congratulations to the winners! All good shots but I thought the most clever was Subtitute's one of the kids in the hi-rise window.

I agree, Substitute's entry this week is really interesting. I'm not going to let the fact that I love the MoMA building complex sway my opinion, but isn't fun the take pictures there?

I agree too that it's a terrific collection of photos overall. Well, to be perfectly honest...Linda...yours kinda freaked me out a bit. Geesh..it looks like a fresh road rash wound. LOL! You know the queasy-gut feeling you sometimes get? Your entry was very successful.

Terrific entries everyone and fun topic, Paul. Oh, and City Island is probably the most uncity-like place in all of NYC. Its' best known for the dozen of more seafood joints, boat storage marinas, and tumbledown neighborhoods. I need to go back with my bicycle and tour the place again.
