#+attr_latex: placement=[!htpb]
#+CAPTION: Some caption

exports as:

\caption{Some caption}

So I end up having to do:

#+latex:\caption{Some caption}

Which is kind of silly

#+ATTR_LaTeX: syntax differs among Org-mode versions. You don't need = in org-mode ver 8. I hope following works.

#+CAPTION: Some caption
#+NAME: Some-label-here
#+ATTR_LaTeX: :height 5cm :placement [!htpb]
#+ATTR_HTML: :width 480
