Nice! I'd better download it before you change your mind.    

I don't plan to steal your avatar, though, so you can watermark that if you want.

The 10-22mm is a great and fun lens. Definitely keep it, specially if these are your first landscape efforts. Very nice series. Keep going...

Aww shucks, Eric, I think they're still kickin'  
Just to prove I can compromise, I changed my avatar and have no watermarks on this ... LOL ...

In your defense, Jack, this is the primary purpose of copyright laws - to be able to batten down the hatches and prevent any unauthorized copying in any way. You are just exercising the full extent of your rights under the law.

On the other hand, is it possible you are simply adopting this mentality due to the availability of copyright laws (i.e. the government's given you a hammer, so everything's...)? There are alternatives.

On the other hand, since you're likely to stick with the watermark, then you should avoid the semi-transparent version. It is well documented that the original image is easy to reverse engineer, because all the information is still there.

On the other hand, a community is compose of many individuals. Others have a right to their opinions too, and may exercise the full extent of their rights by voting with their feet.

On the other hand, I noticed Jeff posting recently. If I say something annoying enough, he can come on and rudely defend the rights of all professional photographers everywhere.

Thank you Thomas, I appreciate it.

And, yes, I have had a lot of fun with this lens  

I have taken some unusual angle shots with it recently also, kinda playing with the depth of field it gives, that has produced some unusual effects as well.

The watermarks kill them all. 


Jack,

It may be better if the watermarks were smaller and placed at the bottom of the image.
Just thought I'd chime in here with my 1st post.

Nice images though.

Thank you very much for your kind words Majik_Imaje.

Your thoughts on what is what in terms of fine art are true: in the end it only matters if people will buy the work. I understand that the copyright symbols ruin the image: in a sense that's what they're supposed to do. Maybe I'll get around to re-doing them at some point, toned down a bit, so that I can deflect the admonishments of the senior members here  

But I do appreciate your encouragement on some of my photos. Here are a couple more for kicks. They were taken in various locations in Florida (which offers quite a bit different climate from what you're used to!). Hopefully, you can see past the watermarks  




Bok Tower, FL



Manatee Springs, FL



The sunbeam light in the center photo is real, not Photoshopped.

Hope you enjoy them,

Jack
