If you would be good enough to offer your opinions and suggestions, I would appriciate it.
I call the first one "GOTHIC, Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory". It is Gothic Colorado and the site was founded in 1928. We got lost and on the way out, this guy just strolled down the road. I saw the picture in the mirror so I jumped out and shot it.
The second on I call "End of the Trail" and I actually have two different crops of this, each in color and in B&W (4 pix total).
Thanks in advance for your comments.

Please re-post bigger versions ... at least 8" X 6.4" . It's tough getting an impression in the tiny size.

No matter what I try, this is the biggest I can get it to display What am I doing wrong? I try cropping to 8x6.4, 10x8 @ 96 DPI. Tried (previewed) from my Smugmug site and nothing makes a difference. I even tried them one at a time.

Instead of attaching the images, link to them by enclosing in [ img ] yourImageURL [ /img ] tags (don't use the spaces in the tags). I assume smugmug allows direct linking? If so, just use the URL of the image on smugmug and put it in the tags and the images will show up as large as they are on smugmug.

Hi Roger... You can insert your images from your Smugmug gallery - here's the Help info on that: http://www.smugmug.com/help/picture-sharing. The problem I had at first was finding the URL, but Andy explains it pretty well there, and if you insert instead of attach you can put more than one image in, with comments between them.
I put mine in my Smugmug gallery at 800px on the longest side, then insert the Large size.
Hope this helps.

I'm fairly new to competitions, so I don't know if this title gets overused, but I keep thinking "The Long And Winding Road" when I see this image.John Knowles, CPP

Much better Roger ...
Much better size now. I'm going to address the wagon first. The matte is the reverse of what it needs. A low-key matte behind a hi-key subject layer screams for attention. And on both images, the accent lines, draw too much attention.
Here is my version ... hi-key matte and a lesser accent line.
