Nice composition. I haven't got the picture quality issue sussed either, but I do have a few pointers:
1. Keep the originals in as large a format as possible,either RAW or Fine JPG. Do all your editing on the large image.
2. Reduce the size of your image in a stepwise fashion, ie by steps of no more than 50% of the original length, until you get down to 500 pixels.
3. Size reduction reduces the image sharpness, so you need to re-sharpen the image after it has been reduced to 500px.
4. Use the Save for Web function in Photoshop Elements or an equivalent to select the JPG compression necessary to get under 60kb (N.B. E2 memebers can upload larger 500px image files, so their images can retain more detail).
Best of luck, keep shooting!
