Nice to see some new beautiful pics from you Troy. I would prefer them w/o the concisely "watermark" because this disturbs the entire view.
Thank you for the compliments. To be honest, I had mixed feelings about adding the watermark.
My primary reasons for sharing photos has always been to promote the scenic beauty of Oregon and to help others discover some of the places that I’ve been lucky enough to visit since moving here a few years ago. But . . . I've also recently decided to join a new stock photography agency that some of my friends are starting here in Bend. Although the watermark may not be perfect, it will allow me to continue to share my photos while also providing me (and the company) with a little more copyright protection.
I hope you understand and that you'll continue to visit my site from time to time. After all, your compliments are part of the reason that I decided to pursue a more professional outlet for my photography. I’m always going to be grateful for that.
I think if you upload your pictures with less in resolution as the original one (e.g. this is "only" at 1500 x 1203 pixels) then nobody could say (if downloaded this one) he is the owner of this picture because current digi-cams will provide much bigger pics and such small one can never be the original. By the way: Each chip (CCD, CMOS, ...) produces a individual fingerprint at each picture. Nevertheless it is your decision and I will live with it because your pics are very worth to see.
