    C&C my watermark, photo, and signature v. 3 birds one stone (all on 1 photo)

    So If you guys could tell me likes and dislikes as to :

    - The over composition and subject of the the photo
    - How my watermark(bjjphotos) is placed, font, style, ect
    - How is my signature in terms of ease to read, does it stand out to much or not enough...

    Before you tear me to shreds there is a reason I have a signature and a watermark. For one I can't even find myself if i google " Anthony Gonzales" so its totally out as far as marketing. Bjj + Photos in google and i am 2nd and 3rd on the list. So I want to use my watermark for all my sports photography when I go to tournaments and what not. And my signature for when I just take photos for friends or TFCD kinda stuff.

    Any other thoughts or opinions welcomed.

    you know OT will always bring the hate for watermarks. I do not mind it but I do not like the font, I think that a font should have clear straight lines and yours is like some grunge shit. You sig reminds me of a website selling halloween costumes with that font and the white glow. And I think there is some kind of design to the left of the letter P but I can not make it out

    The watermark shouldn't be your main focal point for a photo. But that was the first thing that caught my eye.

    Ditch it.

    the grunge shit to the left of the P actually, i see it more and more in "wangsta" websites and so on.

    Vector art used to be cool, now its just every day fad :o

    There is nothing good going on in this thread.

    Wow. His photos aren't very good. I'd be pissed if I hired him to shoot my wedding and the photos turned out like that.

    BJJ, if you want to shoot sports or athletic events indoors, you will need more than a Tamaron 18-200 or 18-70.

    Probably the most brutal C&C ever going on right here :rofl:

    Change font, lower opacity and for goodness sake centre the watermark.

    And yeah the photo is not good. For starters there are power lines cutting right into the frame. Wtf is that.


    Why are your ju jitsu photos so noisy? :eek3:
