I'm down to the wire to get files to Miller's for 2010 PPWashington competition. With help from friends at a regional meeting last month I narrowed down to these four. What do you think? Ideas for titles?

I asked Holly as I always do on titles. Here are her suggestions
#1 - Ahoy Mateys - suggests a little flirtatousness in the girl
#2 Hurry Spring - after the long winter the whole countrty has had, most judges will get the idea. Holly said the cup of coffee or cocoa in the edge of the frame made her think of someone on a cold winter day planning for the spring. Hurry Spring implies the emotion of the unseen person in the image.
#3 In Need of an Attitude Adjustment - or - Mom Made Me Do This This kid looks more angry then thoughtful, so a title that explains why he is angry will help the image.
#4 Posing For Mom - Sorry Sam, Holly didn't care for your title. She said they don't look like a couple in love. The pose looks like siblings. I have to agree with her so I think "Love on The Rocks" would just emphazize that there is no connection between the two.
Not trying to say Sam's titles aren't good - well except maybe that last one:) - just giving you some more options to consider.

Thanks, Keith (and Holly). I'm always amazed at the word connections people find in images. My own captions tend toward the literal and descriptive, which comes from a long history of editorial stock.
The couple in #4 is indeed a couple in love, not siblings, and they loved this image from our session. But I can see where Holly could picture them as siblings.
I do like "Hurry Spring" for the garden journal. But a long winter we have not had. It's been our warmest and mildest in a very long time here in the northwest. I think our winter must have gone east.
