I like them both Tom,

I am particularly enthusiastic about the second shot.

Me too. It's simple but nicely ambiguous.

Hi Tom, I agree with Walter and Eric, but your too bright trademark gets in the way. You might think about moving it to a less distracting location, and cutting down the opacity.

Tom, for the purpose of online display of copyrighted work I think your logo is fine the way it is.

Hi Doug, First of all, under current international agreements a copyright notice isn't necessary to protect the work. Second, Tom's trademark isn't a copyright notice. For that you need to spell out "copyright" or use the international symbol "".

I still put a copyright notice on the stuff I post (unless I forget), but I do it so that people don't inadvertently screw up and use copyrighted material without realizing it's copyrighted.

The problems with Tom's trademark are its brightness and location.

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback. About the watermark, it might be somewhat bold, but I deliberaltey made it that way, mainly because I wanted people to see the link and check my site out Cheesy

I put the originals in the separate folders, and the web versions with watermark go on flickr.

Russ, I didn't say it was necessary, only appropriate. I still say it's fine as-is for attribution of a copyrighted work.

#2 is a total eye stopper. I can see that BIG in some big up town office.

Simple and eye catching; what else do we need to make great photograph

I love the first one...something about the juxtaposition of gold and jewels against the archetypal image of sacrifice and penance.  Very nice.  Potentially very contentious. 

I don't like your watermark banner.  I think it distracts from the excellence of your images.  I understand why you put it there, but I still don't like it.

I sincerely appreciate your critiques, pros and cons. Can't lie I'm flattered with the comments, especially on the cross. I knew it was a cool shot right when I took it. I've never ever tried to blow up my shots on print, maybe I'll look into it. Selling the photo would be amazing I'm sure.

As for the watermark, I'll look into it, I know it's a bit punch in the face.

I need to make some kind of a slideshow on my site, not just blog. Also I'm motivated to start taking some more coherent and thought-out shots...I need to do better than just point n shoot Cheesy

no, you don't need anything.  keep doing what you are doing. there is no sin (pun intended)  in making fabulous photos with modest gear.

Wrong, Tom. For the kind of thing I see you doing: don't think! Shoot! I suspect you go around throwing frames around scenes and shooting when you see something that grabs you. Both pictures here are that kind of picture, and they're both good. If you start trying to rationalize what's in front of you your work's going to go downhill. Keep pointing and shooting.

I see what you're saying, but I do think some shots need to be more planned - for example today I was driving past one olive field and it was near sunset, and the sun was perfectly falling over the trees, grass...but I was driving and didn't react quick enough to stop...

So that's what I mean by planned...I'll go to that place tomorrow around 5PM and try to catch the sunset there.

I shoot with Lumix GH2 and Im aware of some flaws it has but with couple of ND filters I'll get and some Photoshop help, I'm fine Smiley

@Slobodan: hvala! Cheesy

You are already lost.  You should have stopped.  You could be dead tomorrow, or worse...it could be overcast.  Planning photo shoots is often necessary, but it rarely matches serendipity. Make your luck by seizing the photo on the day you see it.  There is no tomorrow.

Well, that's harsh but true...many times I went outside the house without camera on me and I would ALWAYS see something that made me wish I've taken the damn thing...
