That depends on what you're trying to achieve. If the artist wants to be 
paid for commerical uses of the high res version of the image, then 
using NC is better, because that way the content is part of the commons 
for NC use, but the artist doesn't lose his income from commercial uses. 
If the artist doesn't want anyone using the high res image at all 
without permission and/or payment, then NC won't work, and proprietary 
is the only option. If there is a CC licence which will work, then it is 
always superior as compared to proprietary licences, because it 
massively reduces the overhead involved in reuse of the work. That is, 
after all, the whole purpose of the Creative Commons. :)
