I understand what an anagram is, but I'm unclear on how this applies to the challenge.

It sounds like if I was to photograph and enter a photo of a Pear, I should title it with an anagram such as 'Pare' or 'Reap' (which IMO doesn't make much sense).

So I would end up with an entry of a photo of a Pear, but my title must be something basically non-related?!

Help me understand this, please. Thanks!

In your example, you could show someone peeling the pear with a paring knife, or someone up in the tree reaping a harvest of Bartlett or Boscs ...

Using the Pear photo should the title contain BOTH the original word AND the anagram? Like having a title such as 'Pear | Reap'?

Oh CRAP! That sounds very complicated.

... and how would you title those examples? You've mentally illustrated two examples.

If I was shooting a pear I'd do a close-up of the fruit in hand either being peeled or picked, and just use the anagrams PARE or REAP, those being descriptive of the action and straight anagrams of the main subject, thus less likely to run afoul of sticklers who might object to a more descriptive (i.e. multi-word) title.

This feels more like a wordsmith challenge than a photography one. Voting will indeed be interesting.

The challenge description uses Peach/Cheap. Unless you showed a peach with a price tag, these would not be related. Is the title supposed to be related to the photo, or simply an anagram of the subject?

I think it's hard enough to think up a title that's an anagram of the subject! If you can make it cleverly relate to the subject more power to you.

Check out the last post in this linked thread (levidrome). :-)

Then of course, Peach/Cheap is an entirely different animal ... check this out.
