Is the first one the record setting vault? What are your goals? Sales? Recognition? The watermark is fine. So is the image.

People will try to rip it off for facebook etc. no matter what you do. Why not just sell the one time use of the image to a local newspaper or other media outlet?

#1 is the best. I would lighten it up quite a bit. It can take a 1/2 stop or a bit more on my computer.

Depends on what you want your water mark to do. If you want it to protect the image it is fine. If you want it to just let people know where the photo is from but not take away from it it is a little much.

Once the photo is sold and used once, without the water mark, it is as good as never water marked. So if you are going to sell it, sell it as many times as you can soon.

I agree with everything BOB said. #1 is the best, just needs a bit more exposure. And he is right, get it sold as many times as you can as quick as you can. This stuff has a finite shelf life, so bestto sell it while it is still news.
