Really big pictures!

The Photojournalist, 1951, by Andreas Feininger

If you're a photography fan like I am, then one of your pet peeves might be newspaper sites that run tiny, little 400 pixel 600 pixel photographs.

But there are a few places on the Internet where you can find full screen photojournalism.

The gold standard is the Boston Globe's Big Picture run by the Globe's web developer Alan Taylor.

The Wall Street Journal jumped into the mix some months ago launching Photo Journal. And it's more than just a coincidence that Photo Journal looks a lot like the Globe's Big Picture blog.

And today the NY Times launched a large format photo blog called Lens after "more than a year in development."
