I'm now famous

I went to sundown in the city which is like a live music show every thursday night downtown. Anyways, I remember as I was leaving I thought I saw a guy snap a pic, I was browsing knoxpics.org since a friend of mine linked me to the site...and wala look what I found.

http://www.knoxpics.org/Events/Sundo...ambers_098.JPG

If anyone can get that image for me, I'd appreciate it. I don't feel like paying for it though.

Considering it's a picture of you, he's selling it and you didn't sign a model release maybe he'll send you the file as a goodwill thing. Ask him?

I want to see the look on your face after someone bumps into you and smashes the saddle into your groin.

Awesome. But you were already famous from Bike Forums anyway. You even have a stalker now. That's a sure sign.

Is that the new Giro Atmos?

Guaranteed that stalker has already purchased an 8x10 and wallet-sized. Maybe that's why he wanted his address... to send him the pictures.

I know...my stalker has subdued I think haha. As far as the helmet, yes. That's the new Atmos, I opted for the white, the black was just a little too gothic for me.

you suck dude...and actually the bike had rocked back, I was using the rear brake to keep it upright, there were so many people there I couldn't ride, or even walk the bike through on two wheels, I had to pop it up on one wheel. Hopefully I woulda hit the brakes before it smashed my goods.

Gone in 60 seconds...here you go.

Actually, this guy's pretty clever. It took about 3 minutes. I'm not keen on the whole paparazi idea.

Rofl. You all are on crack, and considering how cool that helmet keeps me on those humid rides, I'm not getting rid of it for much of anything

The watermark is part of the image. It looks like a semi-transparent layer. If you can select the area of the text (easier said than done), you can play with the brightness and contrast and see what you get, but I think the only fix is very precise and thoughtful use of the clone tool. I've done that for smaller watermark's, but that's a pretty big one.

Hmm, I thought that only applied to "public figures". Y'know, actors, politicians, prominent businesspeoples...people more famous than PWRD.

Wrong. Anytime you take a picture wherein someone is identifyable, an image house or periodical must require a release prior to taking the photo to market.
