Happy Memorial day all. Please take a few moments and think about all who have served and gave their all for our freedom. Every country has a memorial day of some sort . Today we remember all who serve and have served to make this a great country. THANK YOU! And you'll never be forgotton. Steve
I'm sure all of you have noticed the watermarks on my last three images and all future ones, PLEASEFORGIVE me and TRY and look past them. I sure don't appreciate pirate Web sites stealing OUR art and selling them. So for now on there will be those markings. Forgive me, I can understand if you no longer want to comment on them. The marks I try and make light enough to slightly notice. Some may be more so, sorry. I'll will still enjoy yours and like or fave nether the less with them. We need to protect our art. We have many who take our work also and claim as their own on Facebook and other places.
Spanks for reading. Love ya all and appreciate your time. Steve

I'm sorry to hear those thieves are still upsetting you... do you want me to go snap their necks? I believe I told you to use whois and their abuse email for those domain websites, 99% of the time the server owners have no idea the content posted on their server is copyrighted unless you let them know and they'll be glad to work with you. It's so sad you have to cripple your artwork with the watermarks 'cause of them.

Great tribute to all who serve, Steve. Totally understand the sentiment concerning the art theft. We artists have to protect what's ours.

Really nice and beautiful Spirit of America art work. Keep up the good work! :-)
My rat-ings - a 6 + happy rats!
Sad to hear you still have problems with theft. But, it shows they are wow-ed out by your art. But the bad thing is claiming it and selling it. That's HURTS and is illegal! If you find them, bring it up with their domain providers. Good luck with it!

I get really annoyed with image thieves, even more so with people who enable them buy buying stolen stuff.

Outstanding composition of the strong military, rugged mountain side, rugged landscape and screaming eagle in this striking concept dedicated to those in our armed forces, dating back to the Revolutionary War. And, I don't mind watermarks. Incidentally, your title is the same one as mine for this most memorable and poignant day.

the way I look at watermarks is locks. they only keep out honest people. those wanting to steal will do it any way. look how they were using actual artist names
this is a great dedication and the mark will not stop me from looking and commenting

This turning others art into siggies is as old as forums in 2000. I myself think we should abolish the patents and trademarks office which makes the people's language private property of snarks. How many don't know that titanium is a metal and not some credit card or truck rump? Or that a rainbow contains a spectrum?

**I gave this a 5 star because it's beautiful for our fallen services men and women I understand completely take care ♥ **

As I told you, the watermark is more discrete here. Great compo. I share Richardphotos' point ; those who want to steal images have programs to get rid of the watermarks.
