    While I'll agree it's better, it still doesn't cut it.

    when i was a little kid, just getting into design i showed my mom the first thing i ever made in photoshop. she looked at for about a second and said, "why have text if you cant read it?" That was the best bit of advice i ever got.

    anyways, now i ask myself that every time i put text on anything.

    back to your watermark, why not try to cut the C2008 out of the bar and do the same with the jcerone :dunno:

    you mean just cut those letters out to be completely transparent to show the photo?

    I think that is a good idea :bowdown:

    Here is an example of a watermark...its my cousins. Very simple.

    I know you are trying to be creative, but i am giving you an idea...make it simple.

    okay, i will put my two cents in, take it or leave it...;)

    change the gray text to a darker gray. decrease opacity of the bar just bit more. and i would suggest moving it off the very bottom. maybe move it up just slightly so that some of the picture is underneath where the water mark lays. also i think if you did a horizontal stripe with a darker gray on either the top or bottom of the text it would make it look a lot better. just my personal opinion. its a little too plain and looks slapped on there. i really didn't like your old one at all though. when i first saw your pictures i though to myself, "damn this guy sure does think a lot of himself" when i saw the billboard at the bottom. :o

    This seems more branding then a watermark. Girth I would suggest fixing the kerning on yours, it seems way to cramped.

    Much better, although I think it's too big.

    Make sure I can read what your watermark says. It's pointless if no one can read it or find you from it.
