First at all it is my right to not put copyright's watermark on my photographs, pictures, images (anyway they are in the Exif of the picture, plus i have the original RAW file).
Ok, but why ?
When i show a picture, i want to show it properly, without any distracting watermark or written copyrights.
When i am looking at a picture with a watermark, i just cannot look at it properly, it's distracting, i cannot appreciate the picture !
A good example is the TV, i don't watch anymore TV ... why ?
Because nowadays they put the name of the channel in a corner, the name of the cable/satellite's provider in another corner, the next movie in the third corner and
at the bottom some continuous advertising ... Seriously ? are they trying to wash my brain ? and what space is it left for the movie ? almost nothing
There is another thing about written copyright or watermark on the photograph, unless you destroy almost all the photograph with a watermark on it, any thief will be able to remove it quite easily.
As i have to use to chat also in many photographer's forums, i saw one thing about watermark and written name on photographs, which i can resume as:
The size of the watermark or the signature on the picture is usually inversely proportional to the talent of the photographer ...
And i will add to this:
it seems that bigger is the watermark, less talented is the "fauxtographer".
At the end, which picture is better to take a look at, below or above this text?
