Name It. Win It.

I'm having the worst time. For someone with a somewhat creative brain (I did create hot dog casserole at one time in my life...that's got to constitute as creative, right?), I simply cannot for the life of me come up with titles for my photographs.

For instance...I titled this "Arlington '09"...which simply does not seem to describe what is happening here, or give any air of romantic feel, or most importantly, stir a rapid heartbeat and sudden urge to purchase it at all costs.

Photo 1

So you see, I need help. And I'm not below bribing you for it. I need know your thoughts.

Photo 2

I need to know your ideas.

Photo 3

I need to suck the creative juices right out of you. Or at least borrow them for awhile.

Photo 4

Will you help me? Simply come up with the winning title for the photos posted here today. I'll give you a couple of days. You've got until Sunday at 4 pm pacific (that's 7 for those of you on the east coast. And for my Nigeria fans? I don't know what time it is there, sorry.) I'll post the winners later that evening...unless for some reason I'm flooded with hundreds of suggestions, which I find a bit unlikely.

What do you get in return? Be the winner and get a free 5x7 out of the deal. We'll just keep playing this game every week until I get a whole slew of photos with great titles!

And while we're on the subject of photography...check out this video! It was a photo contest entered by Darling. Keep your eyes peeled for Mustang Desire!

There'll be no living with the punk from now on...

Congrats Darling!

GunDiva said...

I can't come up with names that are as compelling as the photos - I'm not nearly that creative.

Great pictures! I assume that these are all pictures of Mustangs in holding pens? The last one, the horses seems so sad to me.
Don't know if this is what you are looking for. I am kind of having a sad day, no sun, it's snowing and very dismal here on the farm.

1. The Gathering
2. Faraway Dream
3. Run!
4. The Long Walk

jane augenstein said...

I'll have to think some about this. The 4th photo reminds me of a Tim Cox painting, so a similar name would be fitting. Is that a sunrise or sunset?

Tracey said...

I shall pass on your congratulations to Darling. She was pretty darned proud of how well she'd done, needless to say!

The last photo there with the geldings was taken at sunset :)

Thanks for all the creative entries so far!

Comancheshadow said...

I think the first photo should have the title of " This Elevator is too Crowded".... LOL.... the second one is " Misty Dreaming" the third should be "Recess!!!" and the last.." Its been a long day at the Office"........... LOL... have a great day... love the pics!!!
