Ironically, the thread title has some bearing on my recent experience. Last week, I was in Scotland and travelling back, I stopped off in a small town called Kinlochleven for a couple of nights. The last night, I was busy photographing the best sunset of the year so far. Job done and I was heading bakc to the hotel, when a family was rushing in the other direction. Next I hear the little girl say "Mummy, it looks like the end of the road is on fire". Photos to follow...
Nice capture of the sunset, it isn't easy to capture the full beauty of a good sunset a lot of the time.

Seriously, none of these qualify as "sky on fire".


Since I'm saying that, I suppose I should post something that I liken more to "sky on fire".

Attached is something that I'd consider closer to "sky on fire" but even then, it is just an "auto-tone" out of Lightroom (no crop or manual saturation, etc, changes)  but even then, there may be a couple of better ones I've got.

Well, if attachments work... :/

Unfortunately only had my smartphone and a film camera that I haven't got the prints back yet, so this is from my smartphone, but still beautiful:

The picture is pretty nice. However the watermark is more than annoying.  It ruined the picture.

Really? That's a shame.

What purpose does your watermark serve? Is it to prevent image theft? If somebody wanted that image removing any watermark is pretty easy, so there isn't much deterrence to begin with.

Let's say there IS a deterrence effect, does your watermark deter more then a more traditional subtle watermark?

The argument may be that a more subtle watermark usually is near the edge of a picture, so it's easy to crop out. That's true, but that amount of work isn't much more then photo-shopping out your watermark (especially for the readers of this forum), so, does the difference in deterrence help there?

Frankly, I find it sad when a person ruins their picture like that. It is a pretty image, but the watermark, and your response to a complaint about it, sours it. That's a shame.
