Only shows the shortcode on the page. Error handling is hopeless. When forgetting to set a thumbnail, the pages shows: "Array ( [dirname] => /ya/dee.ya.da/duh/barf/uploads/2016/07 [basename] => 009_Landscape_001_small.jpg [extension] => jpg [filename] => 009_Landscape_001_small ) Why not use wordpress´ hooks functions to read the thumbnail. It all seems a bit amateuristic.
