I've started to copyright all my images just as a form of basic protection to make it known that I'm the originator of the photographic work on view.
Visitors to my site are advised too that I am the lawful owner of all the photographic work and that reproduction, in any media, without my expressed permission is prohibited.
But I also want visitors to enjoy the images without too much distraction, so I have tried to keep copyright text to a minimum, at the foot of the photos.
As a further security I have reduced the resolution of the photos to 72 DPI and this also makes navigating through the site quicker.
