Uncropped, curves in LR2, AWB. Same as last time: comments on the photo only please, not on the watermark. :cool:

You're entitled to ask people to comment on the image but not the watermark, as long as they can see the image rather than the watermark. Not possible here.

Gorgeous image! I love the colours, the mood, it's just all together fabulous IMO.

For what it's worth, I'm all for big obnoxious watermarks myself. Gotta protect yourself :-)

Thank you, another watermark supporter. I cannot fathom the first respondant's inability to see the image I posted with my watermark.:rolleyes: More fog behind the watermark.

Nice Image. The geese are a nice touch too! Opening credits for a "When Geese Attack!" movie? ;)

Sorry to say, but with that large of a watermark, it is really almost impossible to form a serious opinion. My advice would be to make the watermark smaller in future posts.

I think it's easy enough for a "photographer" to "see" the image without the watermark. It's a quite nice image really. I like it. It does however, have a lot of space available for text if one chooses to use it as an opening screen for a geese/wildlife slideshow etc. That's not a complaint. Just an observation. I like the image, the processing, and the effect. I don't find any difficulty in imagining the image without a watermark. I actually didn't even see the watermark when I looked at it the first time and then I thought... Oh, There's a watermark there! :cool:

[Where's the smiley for "tongue in cheek"? Never mind that might actually be confused with something obscene. Forget I said it!]

The eyes go directly to your watermark..the image I first see is precisely the mark, not the geese, not the composition.....

I just don't get the need to imprint logo's over everything..if someone wanted to "steal":rolleyes: a photo, that wouldn't be a deterrent. I have seen hundreds of photos on this site that should be in books, and not one of them is marked. To each his own.....


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I really like the image, but think it might have been nicer if the geese had been swimming into the frame, rather than out of it. Just a small point, and a very nice photo either way. ;)

Thanks! I think Pekka tried to copy it for his icon! ;-)a Darn! I should have watermarked it!

Actually he's chewing on a mushroom so big he had to roll it on it's side and chip away at the edges. That seemed pretty cool to me at the time. I didn't know until then that squirrels even liked 'shrooms! :)

You're sympathies have perfect compatibility with someone who would be "acquiring" a books worth of images to "publish a book" soon. They have less in common with a photographer who wants to keep his work as his own. You may not understand a photographer wanting to protect his work with a watermark, but (presuming you are a photographer yourself) I'd think you might find a way to empathize with someone who values his work enough to consider that. Since you didn't I naturally had to wonder if you were publishing a book soon. ;)
