photoblog image Frame or no frame.

Frame or no frame.

Ok people, the debate is on.  Here we have the thin frame and no frame versions.  Don't worry Ginnie, I didn't touch the original.  So the frame discussion is on.  Let the games begin.

No frame. I think there is a contradiction between the tidiness implied by the frame and the wild spillover.
Gail Wiley: I am leaning towards that one myself.
Frame ! For it really gives it the special atmosphere (Tim Burton, again ! )
Gail Wiley: Thanks for the input. The framed version is safe and sound.
I think I like the frame. The paint splatters outside the frame sort of emphasise the wildness of the branches inside. (:o)
Gail Wiley: Thanks Rosalyn. This has been a fun experiment. I have to say I like either the thick frame or no frame with a little more work. I do think the frame ties the composition together.
Without.. the frame makes it too busy. i like the spill over of the "black dust"
Gail Wiley: Thanks Gale, Without needs a bit more work to give it a windswept look. I think I will keep both versions. I like the frame also.

I prefer the frame it's more creative and arty, finishes the shot off for me.
Gail Wiley: lots of votes for the frame. This has been fun, thanks for joining in.
I find not that much of a difference in that the one with no frame does sort of have a frame. The other is just a darker version. It truly makes no difference to me.
Gail Wiley: Thanks Mary. I agree the composition is strong enough to stand with or without. I like the frame to pull it together and i like without to give is a wild scattered look. I am thinking I will keep both versions.
No frame for me Gail, and, perhaps no straight edges.
Gail Wiley: more of a wild scattered look, I agree. Will work on that. I like both. Frame has it's merrits, no frame does also. This has been fun.
Definitely no frame for me, but then you know my stance on frames! I think Bill has hit the nail on the head when he says no straight edges as I think that would certainly enhance it and give it the 'arty' look you are after. So - more experimenting!

Frame for me.
Gail Wiley: Thanks Aussie, I like the frame also. I also like the no frame with a little more work. I am keeping both. Thanks for joining in buddy. This has been fun.
I don't know Gail, I really don't, but I really like the picture. Hmmm...., may the frame!.
Gail Wiley: Thanks Sesan. It is tough. I like the frame and I like the no frame. Just a matter of taste. Thanks for joining in.
No frame definitely. Looks much slicker. All the best, Dave.
Gail Wiley: Thank you Dave. Thanks for playing. This has been fun.
I like them both, but no frame narrowly wins for me.
Gail Wiley: It is running about 50/50. All a matter of taste. I like both also. The no frame however needs just a bit more work on the edges to make them more wispy. Thanks for joining the debate.
I remain with the two, but the two meetings. For me this is a LIKEY! Oh! How I would like to know how to do this! Bravo, Gail!
Gail Wiley: A Likey, Thanks so much. Well what I did was this. I ran a poster edges filter on the shot to get the over all effect. Then I used some grunge frames I got from Graphicauthority.com These are great brushes, frames, backgrounds, etc.... I really love them. I tweaked the frame to my liking (adding, subtracting, etc...) and this is the result. Check out the site. http://www.graphicauthority.com I am sure you will enjoy them.
