Improve my bar graph

How can I better present my information than a bar graph with both very tall and very small bars?

I have been given the task of presenting some information visually. The idea is that there are five or ten problems, and each had somewhere between 10,000 and 1,000,000 possibilities, but each has been reduced to around 100 possibilities.
Right now I have a bar graph with 5 bars going as high as 1,000,000, each next to a bar around 100 high, but it doesn't convey much information -- the lower bar is just a pixel line at the bottom of the graph. Example here.
There is a grey bar next to each black bar but it may be so small you can't even see it.
Is there a better way to present information like this? Maybe something other than a bar graph?
