Thanks for the photo of the California Capitol
Absolutely beautiful. I will ask that you remove the watermark, otherwise editors here will look at the copyright and think you don't understand the CC-BY-SA license, and likely the photo will get deleted. If you have any questions, please contact me on my talkpage. Smallbones (talk) 22:40, 23 September 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. - Darwin Ahoy! 17:04, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
Antarctic Program images
Hi Pete. I just saw your comment on File:Emperor Penguin Kiss.jpg - you might be interested in this VP discussion, as it looks like the problem affects many more of these images. Andrew Gray (talk) 10:33, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
