Not selling as good with watermark

Hi experts.  I've used EE many times for technical questions, but never about marketing and thought I'd run this by you all.

I sell prints on the internet and here is a typical print:
 User generated imageI started wondering if people were simply saving the image I post on the screen and not buying, so I added a watermark:
 User generated imageSales are way down from before.  What about the watermark has almost halted sales?  Obviously I'm going to go back, but I'm curious to your input.

The only thing that I can come up with is the buyer is saying "This guy thinks I'm going to steal his image, I'm not buying now".  Does that ring true to you?

I'm looking at a very small time frame, as I just started watermarking and have only been selling for a couple weeks.  It just feels like it has slowed down.  I was getting about 2 sales/day, and now my inventory has doubled and I'm selling 1 every other day.  Just seems weird, not enough data to prove conclusive, just feels like it
