Bob, these are some really nice shots, especially at iso 800! Did you have to apply noise reduction in post-processing (I'm assuming you did)?

I've been away from Steve's for the winter and even from the fall to now I can really see improvement in what you've posted here versus what you were posting then. It's going to be difficult for me to keep up...

Your son is doing a very good job on your site, Bob. He has woven in Gallery2 very well with a custom look and feel for you. There is something that I'd change for your own benefit...

Your images are able to be displayed at higher res (up to 800x600 or so) and they have no watermark over them. That res image can easily be downloaded or screen captured and used by the illicit person for printing 4x6, 5x7, notecards, etc. You might want to protect them, especially if you are selling them as you seem to be.

Good to see you around here (Geoffs) again.

Another even bigger reason to put a copyright mark on the image is because of the proposed change from the copyright office on "Orphan Works".

Bascically if they can't find you they can use it and you have little recourse. So if someone saved an image off your web page, then 6 months later said "I'd love to use that photo in my flier advertising my company" they'd be able to say "I have no idea who did that... I'll look around on the web a bit.... check some stock agencies... Nope, can't find them" and then use it and you'd only be able to collect "reasonable fees" (and if they don't pay you can sue... but you can't sue for the laywer fees so it would cost you more to sue than you'd get back. In other words they have no insentive to pay you other than preserving their good reputuation.)

This proposal is a very scary change for photographers.

For more info look here:
http://www.copyright.gov/orphan/
http://www.ppa.com/files/public/PPAC...inalReport.pdf
http://www.ppa.com/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=543

If this passes we'd all be out of luck. So you should definitely never let an image out of your hands without a copyright notice on it. By using that, they have a chance of finding you. That isn't perfect, but it would help.
