Heres a picture that I just took, not the best but he's my little buddy, I will post more pics of my other snakes I have when I get the chance. By the way, is there a thread where we can post as many pics as we want? Or are they all limited to 1 post per month?
EDIT: Sorry forgot to include what I used to take this picture with, its a hp Photosmart R725-6.2 MP, nothing special but it will do until Christmas=)

Thought I'd toss my hat in the ring. I was helping my buddy out with a project for his photography class and thought I'd do a bit of my own while he was setting up. The entire session involved super long exposures, so in this one he took out his LED flashlight and wrote his initials... turned out pretty sweet.

Shot with a Rebel XTi, Stock 18-55mm lense, 30 second exposure, touched up with Aperture.

unfortunaly with these things you can spoil a image with the logos and copy right, i think you need to just take some faith in people put it in a corner and if people want to use it feel proud that you have taken an amazing shot

A 800x600 image really isn't going to do anyone much good unless they'd steal it for some sort of web display.
A watermark is a good idea but you need to pick a new spot.

A watermark in the middle of a pic is ok if you make it uncolored and just kind of an outline so you can still see the pic itself fine, kind of like the watermark they use on Deviantart.com.

Cool, is that "The Bund"? It probably would have been a little better if you didn't have the streetlight in the foreground, or at least way off to the side. I wish I was into photography when I was in China. My pics of The Bund were awful and I resorted to buying postcards.
