And as I explained elsewhere it is not a question of high/low-resolution only, but about interaction contexts. Different images for different surface sizes. 

Desktop: Show a full photo of Anne van Kesteren riding on a plane 1024*250 px
Tablet: Show the photo a closer shot of the plane (cowboy frame)  400*150 px
Mobile: Show a portrait of Anne with his leather pilot helmet 100x100 px
