    I'm giving this print (enlarged, matted & framed) as a Christmas gift. I'm going to sign and title it - in a very subtle manner - but I'm struggling as to what is the best title. The image was taken on Ellis Island, NYC.

    Here's what I thought of so far:

    Ellis
    Ellis Windows
    Ellis Arches
    Other???

    I know it's not a huge deal, but I would like some input from y'all.

    Thanks!

    Jon

    Thank you.

    Hmmm...I don't really see them as being stars. How about Asterisks in the Window? :D

    Not bad.

    Also not bad. Sounds like a cookie, though.

    I think I want "Ellis" in the title; but the more I think of it, the more I like this suggestion.

    Anyone else?

    Jon

    I like Gateway

    or maybe -

    A whole new life (or whole new future)

    Ellis Island, the gateway to opportunity

    Nice photo, BTW

    How about...

    Freedom's Gate

    "[FONT=georgia, bookman old style, palatino linotype, book antiqua, palatino, trebuchet ms, helvetica, garamond, sans-serif, arial, verdana, avante garde, century gothic, comic sans ms, times, times new roman, serif]Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better. " ~Albert Camus[/FONT]

    So...

    "A chance to be better."

    Then look here...

    Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

    How about:

    "yearning to breathe free."

    - or -

    "the golden door."

    I like that. I would use "The Golden Door."

    I appreciate all the suggestions. I think I'm going with 'Gateway'.

    Unless I get a better offer. :D
