Default Watermark. Does this look ok?

I received some photos from a model yesterday and I decided to watermark them. I searched through some threads here and found mixed reviews, some prefer the watermark to be in the middle of the photo while others prefer it to be on the top or bottom. Does this look ok? I don't want the watermark to be distracting, but I also want to mark sure my watermark cannot be cropped out.

Opinions needed

i normally put mine on the top/bottom but i think yours is ok because it's very faint.... it doesn't take away from the picture

Thanks, I wanted it to be noticeable but not overpowering.

I think it looks fine-it is transparent, but you can still see it.

Its perfect! Mine isn't very transparent and I always do it at the top or bottom for this reason, I'm never satisfied with it but oh well.

Thanks ladies

I used the free version of picnik. I faded it as much as I could, while still trying to make it readable.

Ok, maybe I don't quite get the purpose of watermarking. Isn't it to prevent others from using your photo, or claiming your product as their own? If that is the case, with the current position of your mark, it would be easy to crop it out and have a well framed head and shoulder shot. Wouldn't it be more appropriate to put the mark on/under her chin or on/over the very top of her head, that way cropping the shot to cut out the watermark would make a very akward photo. I think you mark is fine and light enough that it wouldn't be too distracting, but still prevent others from using your photo as their own. Just my 2 cents.

Normally I don't like the wm in the center of the photo, but since yours is so light it looks good still.

You have a point, I just feel like it would look awkward. I guess if a person wanted it that bad they would do whatever they could to remove the watermark.
