probably. there are guidelines that suggest staying below a certain size
since judges are just normal people with normal sized monitors. As a viewer,
I always get a better feel for an image if it fits on the screen. i think
you need to ask yourself, what are the benefits of a larger render? are
there details that will be missed with a normal size render?
