Odd One Out   or perhaps  Two's Company ....   

Although those titles perhaps direct the observer's initial focus ( and your Three Little Maids is rather more apt )

Titles are important in competitions.  When I joined my camera club they had a new members meeting and this was mentioned about competitions.  Often the title will sway the judges.

The title is perhaps the cherry on the cake.The only way a title can disqualify a picture is in a Natural History section where it's not enough to identify the subject, but its Latin name must be included, and be right.

i.e. A Robin (Erithacus Rubecula).

I've seen prints rejected for this, and if the subject is a subspecies that must be correct.

That's why you'll never see a natural history print from me. :legit:
Ours are not that picky.  No latin name required but they do like the subspecies, but that is not enough to be rejected.

You mean you can't speak Latin or Greek!  ::)

One Greek phrase you may find useful

Boro na paro ti fotografĂ­a sas parakalo?

I got this from an old taverna acquaintance back in the early '80's in the hills above Elounda in Crete. It always got a positive response.  :tup:

May I take your photograph please?

Most of the time, I'm not good at titles for photographs.
Any suggestions for this one?

I've thought of 'Flow,' 'Tranquility,' Sun 'n Sea,' 'Light,' 'Aqua,' (to stay in with the Latin brigade), or even 'Aqua Abstracto.'
My Latin is from 'Google translate' by the way; I only know the basic things that you pick up from linguistics and proverbs and sayings.

Thanks Andy.
Funny, my initial thought was 'Light and Movement,' but 'the other way round,' it sounds better.
