I agree with the OP; I don't like this term at all.  I see a lot of "nice capture" comments on the internet.  Very often this term is applied to a heavily and creatively manipulated image where the "capture" was almost incidental to the final image.  I just think the the poster who used the term is ignorant and has no understanding of how the image was made.
