Week 32’s theme of the 52 week photo challenge is framing your composition. Framing your shots is another important composition technique. Framing is the technique of drawing attention to the subject of your image by blocking other parts of the image with something in the scene.

Some sample framing could be with branches, people, shooting through windows, using archways, tunnels or doorways.
The image I took below was in Ireland at an old castle. I framed the scenery with the ruins of the castle. This technique I felt added an extra dimension to the shot. I chose in this picture to have the frame blurred so used a wide aperture (around 2.8) so that the scenery was in focus and everything else was blurred.
This second shot was taken at The Chief in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.
