Zenfolio Images vs Flickr Images - Any Difference?

I prefer Zenfolio.

I have been a Zenfolio user almost from the start. See debra.zenfolio.com.

Zenfolio does one thing I really like it for: automatic scaling of images to the window size of the viewer. So your friends with small and huge screens all see images that are scaled to fit. (And they can download the full size if you let them.) So no more searching for the optimal image size as a viewer of a site.

The one other thing that differs (but varies at times) is the maximum size of each image. Last time I looked it was 10MB on Flickr and 12MB on Zenfolio. Even 12MB is borderline for max quality jpgs from my 450D. (Depends on the amount of detail in the images of course.)

My Flickr Pro account is expiring and I'm considering changing to
Zenfolio. I've started a trial account at Zenfolio and would like to
know if there is any difference in appearance between Flickr and
Zenfolio images? A couple of examples follow. Feedback and C&C
appreciated. Thanks.
