Not *that* small, my friend: not *that* small!

Why don't you write a nice title for us? (Titles belong, IMO, to every photograph one publishes, even if it is «only» in a challenge.)

On Oceanografic in the Skyscrapers challenge (1 comment in total)

Sorry to say: This is a very interesting—and, in reality beautiful—building but neither the «Oceanografic» (as your title implies) nor a skyscraper at all: it is the «Palau de les Arts» Opera House in Valencia (designed by architect Santiago Calatrava) with just humble seven or maximum nine floors...

In reply to:

sparkey2: Are you going to enter a image Daniel?

Nice to find you here, sparkey2! Will I enter an image? I'm afraid not: neither do I have the necessary macro-experience nor any «Action Figures» for the job (not even descendants that might own the necessary «raw material»). But I sure had a lot of fun looking at all the entries...

On -The Quiet Street- (Full Colours Only + Border) challenge (5 comments in total)
In reply to:

Lensmate: agree as well..borders are a waste of time and effort........
-M

It just seems a few hosts need to make unnecessary rules in order to feel important themselves (from insisting on ridiculous borders to restricting entries to exclusively pictures by former challenge-winners etc.); as if the dpr set of rules were not good enough! Believe me: if there were no additional—useless—rules, the voters would anyway vote for the best images entered (with or without borders, by former winners or first-time ones)...

In reply to:

db.: Interesting title... ??

No problem, jalywol... ;-) I just consider it to be a shame that so many pictures in the challenges here lack an attractive title that might give us some information on the subject shown while—at the same time—awake the viewer's interest for an image... So, in a nutshell, it's more the one who posts who loses than the one viewing the image, IMO.

In reply to:

db.: What a pity: such a fantastic capture of that bear and, then, such a *non*-title!

*That* would have caught attention! ;-)) A title, anyway, is part of your entries...

On Ice, Snow & Everything Frosty challenge (2 comments in total)

Sure, people will vote on the pics and so shall I. But as soon as you make an image public, your title becomes part of it, and if you just «use» as «caption» the numbers your camera had created, you miss an oportunity to catch attention. Too bad for you work! Isn't it?
