Better Photos?

One of the things with this blog that I have been working on (and working on) has been my photos. To be completely honest I have put off many a post due to frustration with the pics. I finally feel like I have got something that is good enough for you you to click on and see some of the brushwork and it "shouldn't" look like crayon soup. please let me know how they look and if you think its an improvement.
The top painting is of the "Galley Wagon" in Rockland ME and the bottom is another self-portrait from the end of the year. If you are interested in "Galley Wagon or any others on here, feel free to contact me.

These look good to me, Dan. When I click on them, I get a larger picture that is sharp enough to show brush strokes clearly. I went back to some of your earlier posts to compare; the earlier ones aren't as sharp. So, great job!

Hey Dan, that self-portrait is great, reminds me of Pissarro! I know what you mean about reproducing colors online, it seems even worse when translating to a printed medium.

I hear the Addison show is going good (has anyone posted about that? don't think I've seen anything). I'll check out their website.

Thanks for the feedback MCJ

HEy Eric, Pissarro!? Thank you very much! I was talking about getting the photos in focus mostly. Alot of my other photos are pretty bad up close.

Thanks alot Mick.
