Excellent post processing, and so pleased that you shared it with us.....
I think it is very origional and just perfect, as it is.....

This is a cool image. Good color, detail and unique framing. For some reason the thin inner frames and the fairly thin outer frame feels a little awkward, IMO. Maybe make the outer frame thicker so it can be the dominate frame. Other than that I like it.

Interesting choice on the frames, though I think that the frame on the left on its own would have been a better shot to stand alone than the sort of composite look. I like the vertical element of the fence post, the clarity of the fence against the water motion. It feels unbalanced on the right side since the small frame isn't anchored to the same spot along the bottom as the left frame.

The sub-framing is an interesting technique. The juxtaposition of the sub-frames is pleasing to the eye, but I don't see anything within the sub-frames that "justifies" them.

I think it's a great idea, but this is not the right shot for it.

I love the framing. Says it's been validated, so I'm voting it as I like it - which I do. Nice job.

- so how'd you set this up?

Can't quite appreciate you frames here. While denoting 3 crops that would make nice pictures by themselves, I feel that together, they're a bit distracting. Maybe if you darkened therest og the picture a bit more, your selections would come out more. Good idea nevertheless.

The frames give this picture a special look which IMO is nice.. it makes the picture kinda special...

I don't think the squares work, plus it is probably going to get a DQ. ISee that it has been validated. Good job on the effect. Let us know how you did it. Bumping up 2 points, but I still don't think the rectangles work here. They need some sort of context.

Taking it to the next level, very creative and validated

I would have axed the squares but a nice shot...

I don't really get the border thing going on here.

This is really interesting and will surely get dpc'er riled up. 10

Nice work and use of the borders.

I wouldn't normally be a fan of this technique as it would seem cheesy, however, you've done an excellent job of keeping the effect subtle and turning an otherwise 'normal' image into a statement on perspective and what it is to be a phographer! Great job!

Hmmm... not too sure about the relevance of motion in this. But the post work presentation is a knock-out! Very nicely done :)

really not a fan of the framing here.

This is different. Guess you love it or hate it. I can't decide to be honest like the concept but have trouble deciding what to focus on.

Are those frames supposed to mean something beyond driving our attention to rather well-explored theme of water blur?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice enough image, but I'm afraid I just don't see how the boxes add anything. Sorry.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/27/2006 01:31:26 AM
I didn't really get this. Why were the three frames chosen? It might've been a lovely shot without all of the frames.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2006 10:53:19 PM
lovely work and I really like the tones...I would suggest you get this validated as some people might mark you low thinking it might not be within the rules...just a suggestion

I really like the idea of the "inset" framing to draw your eyes to certain points but I am curious how the other dpc-ers are feeling about it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/26/2006 02:26:35 PM
cool concept. thanx for a new technique! 10!

What's up with the internal boxes? It's distracting. This looks like a nice scenic location. Good luck in the challenge.

Nice idea and the framing certainly enhances this picture. It brings out the several nice little aspects. 8.

This would have been a good pic without the frames.

Very cool use of frames here. I love the triptych effect very much. I hoe it does well for you. It's lovely and you took a rather ordinary scene and made it quite outstanding. Great colors with the blue/gray, yellows and greens. Congrats on a job well done.

lovely photo, but I don't like the frames.

Whats with the boxes? I truly feel that you ruined a perfectly good shot.
