You read down the list of the billboard or whatever it is and it says

The writing at the bottom of the photograph becomes part of the total work
of art, the "piece" of the photograph.
This is very "Bauhaus" and what I was taught in school.
In this case a very strong case made for it.
That the work of art goes right to the end of the frame.
The frame is as much of the work of art as the smile on the Mona Lisa.
Some would say so is the room you put it in.

A very distracting place to put copy.
I know part of the automatic gallery template whatever.
But a darn shame.

Perhaps you'd have the option of putting more space between your:

And the bottom of the photo.

It's white writing on a dark surface. Both photo and "caption" whatever
you'd call the stuff at the bottom.

Nice shot though.

Is that the 50-300 filter?! :)
