Does a good photograph need some extra decoration e.g. border or framing or extra effects?

Normally I would say that a photograph has to be able to stand all by itself.

A good photo does not need some extras to stand out or to be made more interesting by adding something like a framing, border or other any other beautification. But then again I think this is a general idea and even in some occasions extra editing of a photo can increase the impact it will have towards your public.

Also It might be interesting to add some effects to your photos in order to obtain some more Photoshop skills. It could be a good practice to become more professionally skilled. Some effects can also draw a closer focus towards the subject in your photos.

Here are some samples of my latest editing in Photoshop. All Photoshop tricks were taken from the book of Scott Kelby ‘Photoshop Down and Dirty Tricks’.
