    hi peeps,

    could i get some opinions from people about what sort of border to put on this pic? i've never put a border on any of my pics before as i've never seen the need (as most just end up sitting in folders on my computer or in drawers around the house). but having seen a lot of pics on here with borders i think it makes a huge difference.

    i really like this pic so i'm definately wanting to do something with it, although i'm not sure what at the mo. would a border suit it, or would it be best left as is and, say, printed onto canvas over a wooden frame type thingemy? i'd quite like to get my web address in too. decisions, decisions......

    what ya recon?

    cheers guys :)

    firstly... LOVE the subject! i have a 1975 van at home... (plus a 75 rabbit and a lot of random bugs) is it yours?

    as for borders and stuff... i think i agree with your printed canvas idea... but i would suggest taking a few more at the same size and shape and doing a series, that would give it a lot of presence on a wall and create a collage effect.

    if you really wanted to do a border, it wouldn't be anything heavy... perhaps a thin black line and a wide white one.

    That's what I was thinking as well...one black line and one white one.

    Volkswagens are too good for frames! I really wasn't expecting to run into other VW people around here, and was going to keep my VW photography to myself. Now I'm not so sure.... lol

    I have been lurking around on this forum for a few weeks, checking out what everyone is capturing, and I stumbled across this post, and decided I would add my $.02.

    I too am a VW enthusiast. (If the name didn't tip you off...) I currently have a 2003 VW GTI 20th Anniversary. I have several photos of my car on my website. The link to my site is in my profile. Please visit!

    As for a suggestion with the bus, I would definately add a border. Leave the actual photo corners at a sharp 90 degrees, but add a very thin, black border with rounded edges about 1/8 off the photo. I believe the hard corners of the photo will complement the hard angles of the VW symbol, and the softer rounded edges of the border will complement the rounded window, and the circle around the VW symbol. Give 'er a shot...and let us see!

    I believe the image is only as it appears. Just a small sliver.

    I think it depends on your imagination to see the rest of the photo...

    That's all I can see, too. I figured that's how he cropped it.
