I didn't mind it but I read it on desktop.

I like the bigger one better, although if it were up to me the text would've been narrower. :P

IMO, in general,  these things really need to be seen a desktop for the best experience. Regardless, it's easy enough to make the text smaller for mobile only.

I think each of the poll options need to be split into two: mobile & desktop. Without that the data is pretty much useless IMO...

Desktop - because the pictures are so big, it's hard to see them on one screen without scrolling down and then back up until you get them in just the right spot. I'd rather if they were somewhere in between the old and new size (with the option to click on them to see them in bigger).

Also - the fact that the words start all the way at the left edge of the screen took me a little while to get used to. At first I thought that the page hadn't fully loaded and I was waiting for it to settle back into the regular layout.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

To me the only difference looks like different aspect ratios on the picture (16:9 vs. 4:3) am I missing something?

If you embed via Flickr you can.

Tip for the future:
If you're viewing a site where the pics are too big, just make your browser a little narrower :)

on desktop,
I'm not sure about the format but the times new roman on the new format is hard on the eye when it comes to continuous reading.
