Mumbai-Pune Expressway scenery – a photo post
A few weeks ago I managed to get some clear photographs of the expressway as it had drizzled but the monsoon (which dulls the light) had not set in. A clear bright day…and therefore the photographs are clear too and all I did was trim them wherever required. I am posting some of these here, and this time I have watermarked them. I learnt how to watermark the photographs by checking this site which explained how to watermark photographs in Photoshop. This was something I was hesitating to do for a long time (watermark I mean) as I think it looks ugly. I think I will continue to do it though due to the bitter experience of Hindustan Times stealing my photograph. I’ve realised that putting one’s photographs and work on the internet is like leaving the door of one’s home wide open. It invites the thieves and some of the thieves are rich! Like Hindustan Times. Shameless too…because it’s a good 2 weeks now and they haven’t even bothered to reply! The top guys/editors know for sure as someone I know in HT told them about it. I thought that at least that would work…but no. Their silence speaks volumes.
As for the Press Council, a deathly silence from their end too…and this tells us that they don’t bother about emails, if they read them.
Anyway here are the pictures and if you think the watermark looks ugly, go ahead and say it so I can try and reduce the size. My main aim was to prevent anyone from cropping the photograph.
