Looks interesting, but it's smaller than a postage stamp.

Why not use something like google's picassa (free software) to down size the image.

I think you just change the size and export the image.

If you down size, you should sharpen a bit as well - this puts back some of the sharpnessl lost when down sizing - but sometimes sharpening doesn't seem necessary.

Looks like you made the most of the light with a good balance of aperture, exposure, and zoom.

Looking at the EXIF data in the images it seems you followed the conventional 1/N seconds for N mm of zoom rule.

Friggin sweet! Definately some awesome pictures! I wonder if a specific person whom we need not mention can have any complaints. But rock on. Definately something showing off both the camera and the photographer
