Lovely place, and lovely weather. I have almost forgotten the summer, it already feels like it has been dark and foggy forever.

I agree that the optice of your Pentacon luxmedia is not exactly brillant. I mean it's a cheap general purpose camera and we should not expect too much, but I note the blur towards the corners which is very visible.

If you struggle with the file size, use IrfanView or similar to reduce the number of pixels and improve the compression. Irfan can even do this as batch job for all pictures in a folder. I tried this with one of the pictures, reducing the size to 70% and saving with 50% jpg quality brings the file size down from 500k to 180k with (for me) hardly any visible difference when watched on a standard size monitor. You should not zoom out of course...
