The photos did turn out great-- but I'm going to have to agree, the (C) watermark immediately puts my in the mindset that these are a bunch of "meh" stock photos.

I agree with watermarking photos, but something a bit classier would be a lot less distracting from the beauty of the photos themselves.

Photo-wise though, they look great-- nice shots!

I agree that some type of watermark may be necessary, but this one is way too obtrusive.

Moreover, if the OP is so worried that someone looking at the images might steal them, why did he post them to begin with? Isn't looking at photos the very reason we make them?

I might try embedding meta tags - these are searchable and traceable.  there are also many forms of copyrighting images of which you can read more about here:

http://creativecommons.org/

you don't state which copyright you are allowing such as All Rights Reserved or Attribution 3.0 Unported

also, embedding the images as BBCODE here vs. a straight upload would allow your web site to track an IP address when someone clicks the image.  This is a just in case you feel someone stole your work vs. here where you are not an admin and have no access to IP logs.

The heavy watermark embedded in these photos is not a safe secure way of protecting your work and may cause the interested party to look away vs. stare at the image as the watermark (as others state) is a bit obtrusive.
Thanks

I love the fact that everyone is harping on my watermark...I'm sharing my work with all of you however there are individuals out there in other parts of the world that take regardless of whatever size watermark is on your photograph..I'm just making it easier for them to say....Meh....! if they are at all thinking about it... If I was in the business of jacking others photography....there are many others that use "smaller" "C" logos and watermarks that can easily be cloned out cropped etc... I should drop it smack in the middle...ever browse stock photography that is for sale?..

Thanks everybody!

If someone is seriously intrested in my photography special arraingements can be made for viewing via password login, and also If someone is going to right click and copy there are ways of stripping the meta data...not to mention some monitors and video cards have high enough resolution for decent printable screen copys..  flicker and facebook are perfect examples of this type of stuff...you can right click and save away on these sites...

Your pictures are very good. In fact they are so good that if one crops out your watermark, one still ends up with a great picture! Take a look for yourself.

Sorry - this was my fault for bringing up the watermark issue. I've taken away from what are, at the end of the day, some pretty cool pictures, which is the point of your post. I'd be proud of them. You are sharing your work with us, and this forum is a better place for it.

You can't ignore the watermark issue, though. I do agree with you, and also with Schruminator about the necessity for some kind of copyright protection - it becomes even more of an issue when the material is of the quality of yours - after all, no-one wants to download a poor photograph. I'm not well versed in the practicalities of inserting non-erasable info into file data and I'm sure you'll settle on something that works for you. I would point out, though, that all you really have to do is rest happy in the knowledge that no-one can do anything worthwhile with the typically small files that appear here.

My thinking on your pics is simply that the copyright symbol is so excessively large and intrusive that it really detracts from the appeal of the photo. It's not even a creative reflection of your work - it's a '(C)'. I can't look at any of your pictures without having my attention pulled away from the point of them - the symbol becomes an intrinsic part of the composition and as such, because it's compositionally unsympathetic, it ruins it. It's no longer 'art'. You need to understand that anyone even remotely competent in CS6 can get rid of anything they want, so you're not really achieving anything by doing this.

So again, sorry for sidetracking things, but your photographs have brought up an important issue that should concern us all.

Keep up the good work! I like it.

Totally agree...protect your image any way that you feel necessary.
