What do you think about the technique of framing your subject by something in the scene, like a tree limb?

Framing is a technique that’s been around for many years. Some people like it and some don’t. Usually, as in the photo below, the object doing the framing is out of focus. This allows the subject to remain prominent. The idea is to use a natural object to provide a frame around the main subject.

Those who don’t like it content that it makes the photo “busy” thus drawing attention away from the main subject.

Take a look at the photo below and decide what you think. Is framing something that provides some creativity to a shot or is it just busy? Framing can provide some interesting photos in my humble opinion, but hey photography is art so just because I like using this technique doesn’t mean you will.
