    Here are a few ideas that come to my mind :

    - Adsense (off course :) )
    - Affiliate product related to the niche (if there are such, I can't tell as you didn't specify the niche)
    - CPA offers / gateway ("fill out a survey to get the full-size version of this image" kind of stuff)
    - Put only thumbnails/low-res version of your images on the site, and put full-size/high-res version to be downloaded in .zip or .rar and host them on sharecash.

    i'd say cpa offers related to your pic niche will do the most for you but make sure to not make it look to spammy or flashy ;)

    there is special advertising solutions for image sites at adbrite network. Ads show when you roll over the image, dont remember whether they are CPM or CPC based.
