Frame Within A Frame Composition
What is a frame within a frame?

Foreground Frames
The technique of framing within a frame is somewhat underused. As a method of drawing attention to a particular point in an image, it can be remarkably effective. The idea is to choose part of your scene to be the subject, then find a shape within the photo (usually in the foreground) that will 'hold' it. Foreground frames are the simplest way of using a frame within the frame of the photo. There are other subtler, more imaginative ways to do this too. The most important thing is what I always suggest: think before you shoot. Have a good look around at what can and can’t be used and decide how you want to compose your shot. The more you do this, the faster you’ll be and the better your shots will come out.

Why You Should Use a Frame within a Frame
Using a frame within a frame is a great way to lead your viewers’ eyes into a photo. This can add depth and context, as well as drawing their attention to a defined point. A photo of a scene with a foreground feature makes for a much more interesting build up to the main region of a photo. In some cases, it can even carry equal weight to the rest of the photo.

Leading The Eye
Frames are great at leading the eye in a particular direction or towards the subject. Half frames can be just as effective at this as full frames, as in the photo below.The lines along the left and bottom encourage your eyes towards the center of the image. At the same time, the vertical line converging with the diagonal gives you direction.The eye is drawn towards the center of the image before working its way outwards.

Depth
One of the best reasons to use a frame is to provides depth. This can be encouraged and accentuated by use of a shallow depth of field, Another way to reinforce a sense of depth is by repetition. It’s easy to create depth in a photo by using two or more objects that we know to be the same height. They key is to place one farther away than the other. As we well know, this makes the object appear smaller, which provides us with a sense of depth.

Making the Frame an Equal Part of The Photo
If the frame is particularly interesting, don’t neglect it; use it. This provides the photo with a sense of location and interest, rather then just a scenic view. It leads the viewer’s eyes to look through the window, something people are used to doing.

This technically meets the criteria, but the frame is more attention-getting than the thing framed (Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park.)
Any suggestions from Hoggers on how this could be improved are welcome. I've already done whatever post-processing looks to me to be an improvement, but am a beginner.
