What are your thoughts?

Took a look at your site and found the images way to small as is. Frankly, I wouldn't consider any for purchase simply because they are too small to get more than an impression, perhaps at 1/20 asking price including shipping if they were framed and mounted. Adding a watermark or further diminishing the images seems counterproductive. Go for full screen with a watermark if you must. I will say that watermarks are far from foolproof. But then again, so is building a business around selling stock online.
