Hello Bob, You have some lovely photos on here, unfortunately they are untitled so I can't learn from them. Good Luck, Lewis

Hi Lewis

Not really sure I understand you. I do title my photos - but with over a thousand now, there's quite a backlog. Surely seeing the location on a map is enough.

What are you hoping the title would tell you?

Best wishes

Hello Bob, When I click onto one of your photos they are shown as Untitled, at a quick glance it is nice to see quickly what and where they are, as I said before you have taken some very nice photos and I appreciate them but it is nice to quickly see what and where they are. Cheers, Lewis

Sorry, you're probably not going to like this, but even when I title my pictures, the title is rarely descriptive.

Why? Simple.

Google Earth and Panoramio are tools for exploring by proxy - they should, ideally, make you want to visit the place you're studying. I think if you show a view, an aspect or something quirky, it should encourage research and maybe a visit to find out more.

Plenty of other people, notably the excellent Pedrocut, don't use Panoramio that way, but it's different people. I see the whole thing as being to provoke interest, not perform a documentation.

Best wishes
