NOTE

I've found that almost everybody looks at the smaller images for photos such as these; very few people look at the larger pictures.  Perhaps somebody will tell me why this happens.  Meanwhile, for a while, when I add more photos to the web site, I'll probably just add the smaller versions.

THANKS

Thanks for your feedback.  I've now received mixed views as to whether or not it is worthwhile including large images (e.g. 1024 pixels or wide) as well as my normal size of image (640 pixels wide) on the web site.

For a while, at least, I'll try adding most new photos to the web site at just the 640 pixels size.  That should take less time, so I should be able to add more photos to the site.

However, where I think a photo might be of particular interest, or where I am aware of a  demand for it, I'll also add higher resolution images, perhaps 1024 or 1536 pixels wide.
