Default What in the world?!

First off, I'm not trying to whore any views here. I just acquired a mac on Monday. My version of CS2 that I've been using religiously ever since I could remember is gone. I'm not even sure I could even use it on this machine. ANYWHO....I went ahead an purchased Elements 9. It has pretty much all the features and tools I used in CS2 on the PC. Having a bit of an issue though. I'm processing fine. I'm resizing fine, sharpening is the same as with CS2. Now, I don't know if something is getting lost in the process here or what, but my images look great through Elements, nice and tack sharp. But when I view them on here, or anywhere on the big WWW, and when I open the image up a viewer, it looks like CRAP.

For example, this recent one

I'm almost ashamed to have it up here. Seriously.

The images almost look distorted and very soft. I'm processing as normal, is there something I'm missing? Do I have some sort of setting unchecked? I'm saving at the highest possible setting (12) when I'm saving as a JPG. Any help would be appreciated.
