# Placing subfigure argument at the distance below the figure

In my \documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{book} I'm using the following

\begin{figure}[]
\centering

\subfigure[text A]{\includegraphics[width=0.47\textwidth]{a.pdf}}
\subfigure[text B}]{\includegraphics[width=0.47\textwidth]{b.pdf}}

\caption[]
{ text C }
\end{figure}


Note that 'text A' and 'text B' are places just below figures a.pdf and b.pdf, respectively. Could I somehow make the gap between 'text A' and a.pdf larger?

You are so close then why not making the example compilable with dummy pictures. You can use \Huge A or \Large A instead of the pdf files. – percusse Jun 27 '12 at 17:46
Well, you have it already. Replace pdf files as you propose. – boy Jun 27 '12 at 17:58
What I meant is a code that starts with \documentclass and ends with \end{document}. – percusse Jun 27 '12 at 18:00

I don't know if I understand

\begin{figure}[]
\centering

{\subfigcapskip = 20pt \subfigure[text A]{\includegraphics[width=0.47\textwidth]{a.pdf}}}
\subfigure[text B}]{\includegraphics[width=0.47\textwidth]{b.pdf}}

\caption[]
{ text C }
\end{figure}
