15 February, 2012 gallery additions

It's that time of week again! I've put up another twenty photos from various trips over the past few years. There's nothing special about this collection except that they're the ones I happened to have handy on my laptop. Smiley face

Last week I asked if larger images would be better and gave an example between one in the hort.net gallery and one at Flickr. Only two people responded, and the answer was split 50/50.

Here's the question:

--- When you compare this


vs. this


do you feel the same looking at both images? Do they convey the same thing? Or is bigger better (or worse) in this case? ---

I would like to offer some way of displaying larger images in the gallery. I think my only real concern is image theft — about 10% of the images in the gallery have been stolen and used by US- and foreign-based nurseries. Since I sometimes sell photos, having the higher-resolution versions stolen could seriously impact me.

Knowing how you feel could sway me one way or another.

Thanks, and keep warm... Spring is coming!
