This is the first decent photo I have taken on my Eos 20D. It was a spur of the moment thing with no time to compose a shot. I would like to know what you think...

This is a nice shot, but you're going to have to make them smaller for us to be able to appreciate them. When I have to scroll through a screen - iy's too big...:lol:

I just checked the actual size, it's 2300+ by 1500+

The relevant size is NOT the inches shown in the print dialogue - rather the absolute number of pixel in the image. In other words, in PS, when you go to print, if the images is set to 300 dpi, that would result in a print roughly 7.5 across.

But the absolute pixel count means, that I with a 1024 screen, actually have a double the screen size image.

So to display these images for the WEB, keep in mind the absolute pixel count. That is the true size of the image. The dpi is merely a convenient way of sizing the image for a print.

And again - it is a nice shot!
