A photograph shouldn't NEED a narative - And those remarks of yours are a critique in and of themselves. A title should be narrative enough.

I provided a narrative on one shot, but that's because it was modified (and basically killed) by blurring the faces. Actually my favorite shot of the group - and dead as a doornail. I posted it anyway to show the kind of shot that is probably going to get the photographer in trouble.
