How to make a simple watermark in GIMP

This is a really simple tutorial and well worth the small effort required, because you’ll have something to put on your photographs/artworks without making it look too ugly while making sure you get enough credit in case your work is copied or used.

Shot of the Day #23

Power lines are often associated with negative connotations of how ugly and degrading they are to the natural landscapes, however I’ve attempted to represent them as a dynamical photogenic object by composing a wide angle and slightly distorted photo with the long electrical cables stretching past the frame.

Shot of the Day #22

I was in the possession of an amazing camera over the weekend – the Canon 5D Mark II – I captured a few nice shots but didn’t get the chance to fully test it out in the short time I had it. I was using a Canon 70mm-200mm f/2.8 Telephoto Lens while taking these flowers and the DOF-Depth of Field combined with the lens length and aperture of ~2.8 was amazingly small which made great macro shots.

Shot of the Day #21

This shot consists of seven photographs, all stitched together to form a panorama of the Melbourne CBD. I was standing on the Southbank side of the Yarra River just in-front of South Gate Plaza.

Shot of the Day #20

Flinders Street Station is probably photographed hundreds of times a day, but it is at night when it’s best to photograph. I took this at 11pm last weekend, and the streaming car-lights and the warm tones of the building makes it look great by night. I have stacked two photos here to capture both turning and straight-on headlights, and only cropped slightly on the edges to centre the building more, otherwise no more post-processing was needed!
