I love the top but not the color of the green on the bottom and I would crop this into a square format. A very interesting approach to this kind of image in any case. A

Like it Rende, works for me,

Beautiful, Rende, and very painterly indeed. I like the green, but I'm not so sure about the colour of the border, it makes everything seem a little dull, a little too sombre, on my screen at least... I think black, charcoal, or even an off-white, would work much better.
Another direction for you to move forward and explore, and hopefully you'll show us more such experiments.Smile

I like the simplicity and painterly quality of the image, Rende.

I didn't associate the image with the name at first. But it is said that a change is as good as a rest!
Very soft and subtle, this I find very pleasing: a question rather than a statement. I don't mind the green, it resembles a watercolour wash; the black background works much better in my eyes. A photograph to which I shall return, I'm certain.

It's fascinating, it doesn't look like a photograph, more like a painting. It creates its own world, with its own logic, which is something that I like.
I favour V1. It works for me because of the two very thin black lines - just enough to fix the boundaries. Black is too oppressive.

I love this Rende, it's so different and beautifully presented. Funnily enough I find V1 the way you first presented it perfect. Great capture, well done

This is starkly beautiful, and it is definitely a fine piece of art. I prefer the lighter border of v1, the black border overwhelms the delicate nature of the subject. Black is definitely way too heavy for it.

V1 with the grey border. Works well with the colours in this painting like image. The black just looks all wrong.

Intriguing imagery which works for me Rende. Image number two having the impact.

I like them Rende. It is surprising to find what a difference a frame makes; something I often have difficulty with. I prefer V1 here although V2 does draw the eye more to the light of the window.

Good work Rende,
but just a bit too ''arty'' for me perhaps !!

How interesting to see how the different colour borders work. They both have their own identity and I can't choose.

I am not distracted by the border in V1 - its certainly intrigueing (the image)

Rende as an impressionist? It works for me. I think a simple thin black border - a la v1 but without the broader secondary border would work.
Good experiment - let's hope you have some more to need at all not to feel comfortable...

I really love this image. Very subtle and dreamy.

Can't make up my mind about what colour the frame should be; definitely not the grey though.

27 Mar 2014 9:21AM
Prefer the black frame on this one Rende.

the grey border drains the image, the black enriches it.

Mysterious look to this Rende. Personally I'm not in the ' black border camp' it appears too overpowering for the subtlety of the image.

Monet eat your heart out. I think I go with v1 for the border but only just. I like the idea of a square crop without the green as well.
