I figured why not? Everyone else is doing it?
Everyone else is posting threads for C&C on a watermark? Looks big to me.....if you want C&C on your watermark you should probably try posting a pic with the watermark on it.....I'd have a different critique if it's the size above than if it was small and in a corner.
Well, as I've already mentioned... I don't like the font.
That being said, I kind of like the reverse triangle you have going on, but it's a little tilted. I think there is too much space between "For Life". also, the copyright 2010 Sarah Dillard is a little to the left instead of being more centered.
A lot of people use Papyrus for a font. Whether the application fits the font, or not. I think from a graphic designers perspective you should try and make it a little less intrusive and change the font. If you notice, it takes up a good portion of the photo, and is very distracting, as I am sure you want people to focus on the photo, rather than who took the photo at a first glance.
The biggest issue is......you dont need a water mark. No one is gonna steal your pictures.
I definitely like this font better.
doesn't mean I can't use one...
When I frame a picture, people shouldn't have to ask who took it...
thanks for the CC... *insert choice word here*
Is that why you don't have a watermark?
Don't be a dick, it's a step in the direction of professionalism if she wants to pursue it. Also, side note, photos taken by people that frequent this forum HAVE been used without their permission on other sites.
When it was made smaller, you couldn't read the copyright portion...
That was why I made it a little bigger...
I'd suggest rethinking the need for it.
I'm not even sure why it's considered a watermark, it's more like a signature. A watermark, I would think, covers the entire image and has a low opacity, which basically renders the image useless to anything other than critique or preview. It's difficult to shop out perfectly.
A signature, however, identifies you as the author and proclaims copywrite status. Well, if submitting for C&C, we already know you're the author, and like Jimmy said (ever so eloquently), I don't know why anyone would steal a picture that was submitted for C&C on a Beginner photography forum, especially when it's such a small resolution and would be useless for printing or selling.
But if you must, smaller is better, in my humble opinion.
Separate names with a comma.
