    thanks, derek. it's fun and it limbers me up to go between the fancifull and the more realistic, photographic. for me digital has been a godsend. at 13 i wanted to be an artist, but decided i couldn't draw and became a writer instead. this has been a gift to the aging.

    Re: water dancer

    Very nice, Wayne.
    Two alternative views on the topic of captions: One may argue that the photograph should speak for itself, whereas a caption manipulates the viewer verbally; or, one may consider captioning photos a composite art, where words and images form the message.
    Your works and Rayyan's on the Nikon and Leica forums bring this to my mind. Do keep posting, I enjoy them immensely.

    captions in my humble opinion are useful they have been used by the good and the great throughout history manly in the art world, Lowery-Constable and Picasso all made good use of titles ( captions). to help create interest around their work.

    Re: water dancer

    yes, i'm always disappointed when photos say 'untitled' as if the photographer really had nothing to say. the master of titles

    http://www.amazon.com/Manuel-Alvarez...7187623&sr=1-1

    they add a resonance. unfortunately, most non-pros put sentimental readings on their work and embarass us.

    ps. the bravo book notable for another reason: how facing pages have photos echoing each other. masterful editing.

    Re: water dancer

    thanks, osman. missed your note. i do think photos can speak for themselves with simple emotions. yet every iconic photo has a context which functions as a caption.
