Where is this from?
Student or Learner
I don't understand 'pose' in this sentence.
"Beautiful photos but it's a little strange how she was posed in his shadow."
I can't understand the meaning of the sentence. Could you help, please?
Where is this from?
"Invading armies have no rights." Noam Chomsky
Someone commented on the photo I uploaded (of my son and his girlfriend).
A better title would have been how she was posed in his shadow.
She was standing or sitting in your son's shadow. The person who commented may have thought you deliberately positioned her there.

Is it literally said? I can't see any shadow in the photo and thought that it might have been said figuratively.

With a full respect and gratitude for your help on BBC MB forum many years ago, please allow me to say. Aren’t the essential parts are the question and the answer? Why be so picky? And it never ever was a case for you telling me about naming my threads wrongly back then, for many years. Probably because it wouldn’t be supported by other teachers.
I don't have good command of English. Thinking about the title itself (let alone about how to put my question correctly) is not an easy part. Plus, giving a title more complicated name (as you suggest again and again) increases my chances of making a mistake and being it seen by others! It is much simple and mistake-free to hide behind a simple name (and less time consuming).
Isn’t the meat of the question more important, all else is just window dressing?
It's very simple. Thread titles should be as explanatory as possible. There could be several posts about the word "pose" and if I/we need to find a specific one, it's much easier if there is a more specific title to remember. It also helps you to search the "Similar Threads" to see if your question has been answered before.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
