  1. I just looked at your site’s table of contents—what a resource! What dedication and organizational thinking! Congratulations! Glad you’re having fun too, with this abstract art exhibition! I appreciate your attention to details in the guidelines.
    I may consider sending something or simply enjoy seeing what everyone else comes up with! Looking forward!

    • Personally I think without watermarks is better. Obviously, large opaque watermarks will detract from the image. Ultimately the decision is yours.
