Have you considered making the QR code smaller? I know why you use it, but its massive size dominates your photos. Frankly, it ruins them. There are better ways of watermarking your photos that won't completely ruin them like that QR code does.

I'm going to remove it and just start uploading smaller photos, like the ones above. I'd like to keep uploading 1280 width pics, but instead I'm going to switch to 640. It's kind of a bummer because I really like showing off the detail in the photos and that's hard to do at a small resolution.

You do realize that you can change a setting in Flickr that will block people's attempts at saving your photos. I just think that a less intrusive watermark, even a pattern that is faded in the background of the whole photo might even be better than that QR code.

But can't you still just take, then edit a screenshot of the image?

And CS5 has a tool that can effectively remove your QR Code without much effort, and make it as if it was never there in the first place. People are going to take your photos if they really want them. The best thing you can do is to make it complicated for them.

Saw an Austin Healey 3000 GT in the same color 2 weeks ago. I love those cars.
