The picture is pretty nice. However the watermark is more than annoying. It ruined the picture.
That's fine by me.
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.
