@Dave, I noticed a watermark on one of the photos in perennials. Aren't they supposed to be all off?

That can happen if the photo was previously added to the database and then later submitted to the contest. There's nothing that can be done in that case. In such an event, it's up to you whether you think you should not give it a vote for that reason.

I may have been one of the offenders here *Blush* . I do always add a signature to my images for web use as I have a macro to automatize that, but have never thought about that as also being an actual watermark. I thought that there was a clear difference between a signature and a watermark, but I now understand that this was an error in thinking on my part. I thought that a watermark always was the semi transparent stuff some people put straight across their images making them rather hard to view (and difficult to copy for image thieves) . My sincere apologizes to anyone who thought that my signature was offensive and of course feel free to remove my images.

Oh No William, I didn't take offense to your or any watermark. I was thinking that a photo contest judging shouldn't be affected by knowing who took the picture; Not that I think everyone would be affected but it's one way to keep entries more "neutral" for lack of a better word. I'm hoping that all photos are judged on their merit! Smiling
