    Smile Re: footnote

    I have another sentence as written. Can the word "presenting" be replaced by "placing" ?
    Please check it out.

    Presenting a wreath to Mr. Chen Chan-zhon, who retired from 25-year teaching career, at the farewell party on July 3, 2010.

    Re: footnote

    As a caption underneath a photograph, it's OK, though 'a bouquet' would be better.

    A wreath is a flower arrangement for a funeral.

    'Placing' would be wrong.

    Re: footnote

    Yes - as a caption for a photograph.
