I've noticed a lot of photos on here lately that have watermarks. For most of them, my first thought is that it really takes away from the photo. My second thought is that the photo isn't all that special in the first place. I'm a beginner myself and realize that my opinion, of someones photo quality, probably doesn't carry all that much weight. If you have a watermark, Why? The internet is flooded with images, why would someone want to steal yours? Of course some people believe that their images are super special and valuable, but in most cases if you did a search you could find 1000 images just like it. Just a minor venting session for me. Am I off base?
