This is probably a css problem; images are inline elements by default.
That means they behave as though they're on a line of text and that
the bottom of the image is positioned on the BASELINE of the parent
element (or, in other words, where the bottoms of letters without
descenders are placed). This means that there's a space between the
bottom of the image and the bottom of the 'line'. The solution?

1. Style images inside the container to be aligned with the bottom of
the parent rather than the baseline:

div#feature_box img {

2. Style images inside the container not to be inline elements in the
first place (depending on exactly what you need to accomplish, this
may or may not create other problems in your layout):

div#feature_box img {

Incidentally, why have you got all those ugly inline styles in the
source? You could as easily add something like this to your

div#feature_box img,
div#feature_box a {
  /* margin:0; left out because it makes no sense to try to apply a
margin to an inline element in the first place... */

..or probably better all-around:

a {
  /* Do it globally since this will probably _usually_ be how you want
it to work. When you need to , _add_ padding to individual elements
via a class... */
