Car headlamps question

I've just replaced the headlamps on my little hatchback and drivers were flashing me non-stop all the way home, as if my main beam was on.

When I look at the beam pattern, it IS quite high. The light thrown by the beam was about 5' high off the road.
The other unusual thing about my journey is that my boot was full of really heavy musical equipment, which it isn't normally.
It looks like I need to have my headlamps recalibrated but it's confusing as to why this has coincided with changing the headlamps (which was easy) unless it's all to do with the weight in the boot?
If you can shed any light I'd be very grateful... ;-)
I've had a look online and my car seems to take the exact same bulb for both main and dipped beams so it seems unlikely I could have mixed them up to adverse affect.
