When the challenge came up I had a billion ideas, but nothing really worked. I tried something with picture frames, mirrors, long exposure, and nothing was really worth it. In the end I came up with this idea, and I liked it the best.

I shot this through a piece of cardboard, that had a hole in it. I put the camera on selftimer, and ran into the bathroom and posed. I did quite a few, and this one came out best.
I dont have any fancy studiolights or anything, so I had to do this the old-fashioned way: standing still for 0.3 sec, at ISO 800.
I hope this qualifies as a 'framing' shot.

I'm glad someone nominated this for an OOBIE. I thought this was quite clever. It's like looking thru a peephole and that is what provided the framing, of course. I like that it's not perfectly set up, because that would make it feel clean and posed. Keep doing your work the way you want to and ignore the nay-sayers.

Must have been a man that last used the toilet...the seat's up! :-P Clever idea for the challenge. The slightly soft image gives a sense of being there as well, instead of being crisp/sharp. May have wanted to cool the color temp just a tad as it has a strong yellowish tint from the lights. Not a big deal, just an observation. Good luck in the challenge with this.

A little too 'pervy' for me. Can certainly see your idea. I'm thinking less bathroom artifacts may have made for your person to be more of the focus.

Great idea, but the execution is not there, I'm afraid. Other than the good idea, this seems lacking in clarity and composition.

This does have a "peak throught the key hole" feel to it so you accomplished what you were looking for.

I feel dirty just looking at this. And on a side note...who needs TWO back scrubbers?!

A tough kind of shot to get, but a neat idea. If the subject was a bit more in focus, I think it would be even more effective.

I'd feel more like a voyeur if I could see the window frame around her. That would also cause the picture to meet the challenge. Here, I don't see any kind of a frame.

Definitely wins the humour award - although I am a little bit worried that you knew this would work... Technically, the white balance might be a bit off?

Interesting idea. Reminds me of the Axe commercial. XD
