    Default Need a Title (No JUDGES please)

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm in need of some title suggestions for the following print. The print is of a Gas and Electric company along the Ohio river.

    The link is http://www.RobinsPhotography.com/Cri...ic Company.jpg

    Thanks,
    Robin

    Here in the Kanawha Valley we call the Ohio river the big O..and I asume you were facing north because the wind was blowing east. Am I correct? Very nice photograph by the way.

    Will - You are absolutely correct. I hadn't heard of the Ohio referred to as the big "O" before. I had to google the location to that were also correct on the direction of North.

    Ariston - "Power on the river bank" is very good.

    Thanks,
    Robin

    If the title isn't obvious, the print will die.... unless it doesn't need a title.

    ....with all that smoke, the first thing I think of is polution.

    Will, before I forget it again, thanks for the compliment.

    Dave - I do see the smoke, but I didn't associate it wih pollution. I will now.

    Thanks.

    The problem is whenever you are dealing with power generation you'll end up with smoke of some sort. Photoshopping it out will make it look unnatural since the viewer is pretty expecting something coming out of the stacks. The goal is not to play it up with the title. Since it's for a Gas/Electric company, the idea is to promote the business with the photo. Although it's a very artistic shot, if it's going to be used by the company for promotion I'd figure it should mention either the topic or the company name itself.

    Actually Ariston, I'm thinking of entering this into competition. I'm needing titles to also decide which category that it might fall into. Does it look like a commercial print? Or would it be better as illustrative?
