No, not really.
You can get perfectly respectable views at 1024px (as I've done). It's more about subject and making the photo interesting. That seems to dictate the views.
Apart from that, views are influenced by links from search engines, getting on the front page - and obviously, if the photo captures some dramatic accident like the Kalitta 747 accident in Brussels, the BA 777 "heavy landing" at Heathrow or the US Airways Airbus water-ditching.

I think larger files are only ok, when the quality is optimal, both in sharpness and exposure.
It is not necessary to upload large to get many views, look at the high hitting photographers, most of them upload at 1024 pix.
