    A little village in Brandenburg, east of Berlin, very close to the Polish border - used to be East Germany and still looks a lot like it today, mostly so with this "Trabbi" going along the streets.

    And don't even TRY to pronounce the name of this place! ;)

    It's a very nice shot foto but do you know what is the very best little item in it? Oh heck I can't make you guess... the thing that turns if from a vacation snapshot to something more is the little bit of frame at the top left of the image...Most people wouldn't have bothered

    Oops, well actually my intent was to get this car into the frame at all costs and not losing any of the foremost house, i.e. not to cut off any part of its roof. Those were the two things I took in when I framed it (this is totally uncropped). The little bit of framing by the leaves ... thanks for the compliment, but ... stole itself into my frame all by itself. :oops:

    shame on you for admitting it....

    you are supposed to say "I'm glad someone finally noticed."

    Yes, the "Trabant" (always referred to as "Trabbi") was a purely East German brand and the cars are not necessarily made from metal, but a lot of it is hard paper...

    There were few cars in that village only, but those that were there were Western brands, so when this came puff-puffing along the road I just COULD NOT not photograph it.

    Sometimes I wonder what does? This is an ordinary picture, and yet it looks so great. I doubt it's the top-left corner alone.

    try looking at the picture without any foreground and note that the illusion of depth disappears. Foreground in a shot is a classic compostion trick of painter mostly but also photographers.

    A painting and photograph is a two dimensional object but the illusion of depth can be created by foreground or leading lines. Those and lots of other compostion tricks turn snapshots into something more even if they dont rise to the level of fine are.... whatever that is.
