None of my computers are colour corrected - but the extremely narrow framing is visible on my iPads and Macbook. My Windows Workstation back in Canada probably wouldn't show it with the large contrasty monitor I use.

And so I too wonder oif this image wouldn't be better with a larger width --- although I personally would probably sample the off-white colour of the image background and fill the extra space with that - instead of going pure white.

The way we read an image with white canvas is completely different from one without it.

In real life it has the benefit of looking larger :) than it really is. As if we were looking at an image larger than it really is.
Images glued in Dipond or similar are very rigid and look cold. Usually they are about 2 cms away from the wall...

I agree Antonio. Your image has great impact with the border around it.

On the contrary for my "Bangladesh!" series exhibited first in the same place as "Three châteaux in Winter", I preferred to keep more sober, humble and give the power to the image of people shown.

For my more contemporary images such as "Monday night" I chose to show the image intact, without any border…

I agree with your approach Nicolas. It all depends.....

Note, that so far, no justification has been suggested or found for thick, black or other bold attention-getting frames/borders!

I was blessed with Spring rain today and hightailed it into the spotted gum forest.

The koala, an Australian icon is clinging to life in these forests. They do have strongholds elsewhere but have had major problems with disease and land clearing etc.
Anyway, they are a of a topic here at the moment.

Here is my capture of their plight. right there in front of my eyes!!

Also this is my first crude attempt at including a fine border so any advice on how to improve that would be very welcome.

This works for me, Andy, but I have not seen it without the line.

This picture does have a lot of fine lines and so perhaps it just it continues that fine motif.

I actually like this with the border Andy. To me, it gives the image presence and tells me that it is important. As for the image, as abstract as it is, it also looks like a face (perhaps a woman's) and the vertical lines gives the aspect of tears which makes your title so appropriate. Fabulous.
