Nice mock-up.

I have discovered that if you hold down the 'v' key you get, more or
less, the functionality you are suggesting.

Personally I like the 'v' key solution.  The functionally is just a
keypress away for when you need it and not there when you don't.

Granted that this is not as discoverable as your way, but then again it
allows the tool to be used in different ways.  Why should placing the
pointer over an image mean "display this one slightly bigger please"?  I
may want it to mean "this is currently my favourite of those I've
reviewed so far."

Your mock up clearly shows that what you intend would obscure images
around the current choice.  I therefore see your idea as an increase in
discountability at the cost of a reduction in functionality.  That's a
poor trade off in my book.
