# Vertically aligning captions in side-by-side figures

I'd like to put two side-by-side figures with two different captions. I used this:

\begin{figure}[h!tbp]
\centering
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.6\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{figures/fig1.jpg}
\caption{Caption 1.}
\label{fig1}
\end{minipage}
\hfill
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.35\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{figures/fig2.png}
\caption{Caption 2.}
\label{fig2}
\end{minipage}
\end{figure}


However, I suppose that because the figures' heights are different, the captions aren't vertically aligned (one is above the other). I would like to lower the upper one till it reaches the bottom one, creating a blank space between the figure and its caption. Is there a quick fix?

Just make two rows, one for images, one for captions

\begin{figure}[htbp]
\centering
\begin{minipage}{0.6\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{figures/fig1.jpg}
\end{minipage}%%%
\hfill
\begin{minipage}{0.35\textwidth}
\includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{figures/fig2.png}
\end{minipage}

\begin{minipage}[t]{0.6\textwidth}
\caption{Caption 1.}
\label{fig1}
\end{minipage}%%%
\hfill
\begin{minipage}[t]{0.35\textwidth}
\caption{Caption 2.}
\label{fig2}
\end{minipage}
\end{figure}
