...especially if the newly wed couple will dance with their feet on your camera... ;-))

Thanks for your kind answer! db.

Anything you say, of course! But I do doubt this being the runway number... ;-))

Too bad you didn't make the effort to accompany your image with an attractive (informative or funny) title... That's—IMO—part of «publishing» one's pictures.

A toy? Or rather a «workhorse»??

No need to shout your title (with capital letters): it's a nice image of a nice car anyway...

On challenge Pick your challenge III (9 comments in total)

What, Hans, is your problem with watermarks? As a professional (text-) journalist, I fight for the rights of every author—of text, images or music alike—to protect his creation from being stolen. I would never ever publicly display an image of mine without reminding the viewer(s) with a watermark that they may not use my «creation» without—at least—asking permission. If you forbid the watermark, you will never see a picture of mine in any of your challenges... Sorry!

Now imagine, Ali, how nice it would have been if you had taken the time and made the effort to accompany your image with an attractive (informative or funny) title. Or—at least—told us in a comment what building your picture shows and where on earth it stands...

I wonder what your idea of «prohibiting» any postprocessing is aimed at. There is—as others have implied here already—*no* digital photography without PP! Absolutely none!!
