When photos are uploaded to the site and are compressed to fit they really suffer as you have noticed. Not sure if it can be fixed from the site or not.

Your wife's picture comes across fine, the exposure seems to be right on in some pictures, but the background is over exposed. I'm wondering if you may be using the spotmeter setting which would be focused on your wife and the background seems to have a bit washed out.

I wonder if you switch your camera metering to get a meter reading of the entire scene. This might balance out the background lighting.

As an experiment it would be interesting to see what the pix would look like if you used your camera's fill flash..I notice that in one of the pictures there is shadow on your wife's face. Using your fill flash setting on your camera should take care of the shadow.

You can probably resize (to less than 1024 max width or height) using your favorite software before uploading, this way steves-digicams.com won't alter your image(s). In my experience, I get different results using different softwares.
