QUICK LINK To Hugh's site

Had a quick look and it's not bad if you've done it yourself. Just a few points - all meant as constructive observations:
I'd make the banner larger as your title is a little lost.
Yellow on black - not my favourite colour scheme.
Many people will ask why you need to list your equipment.
Need an apostrophe in title - Hugh's website
The make of tripod will be Manfrotto not Monfrotto.
Sorry if that all seems picky but you did ask.
Welcome to the site too
Rob

Agree about the yellow on black text.

I clicked on what I think from the thumbnail are avocets top left of your home page, but it comes up with a broken link.

In fact same seems to be true of the other images on that page. So either they need to link correctly or remove the ability to click on them.

Good luck with it though. Needs a few more images as the number of galleries almost outnumbers the images Grin

Hi csurry
And thank you, the images on the home page are just to make up the front page, the reason galleries outnumbers the images is that I am redoing the website the eriginall site cept ceting spamd, the avocets photos I am in the middle of re sizing the photos and will upload soon

Hi Hugh, great lot of improvements.

I wonder who your target audience is and what you feel the purpose of the site is. Is it just to share with friends?

The reason I ask is that there are quite a few typos, but if the site is just for friends that already know you then this is less important than if you are potentially looking for customers for your work.

Hi Csurry
As before I have no problem with criticism the site is for however is interested potential customers for your work would be ok but going out for an assignment would be a problem as I have a heart condition among others which slows me down quite a bit, the heart condition has caused me to have a bit of a short term mummery loss at times, typos witch what war

S'Ok Hugh. I don't have time tonight, but I wondered if you wanted someone to point out the typos or if you are happy that the site represents you as it is now. I realised from what you said earlier that there may be an issue with the grammar and spelling.

I was just trying to understand that before launching in to a list of possible corrections. If no one else chips in I'll try to have another look tomorrow as I have been up since 5:30 this morning and I'm a little tired to look in detail at the text right now.

Hi Hugh,
starting on the home page.

Not sure if you deliberately have a space before every comma and full stop. It is unusual, but as it is consistent many will take it as a style thing I guess.

On the main gallery I have included a lot of these photo's to share with you.

You do not need the apostrophe in photos.

Gallery:
On the gallery it states weasal, this should be weasel - this is in a random photo, so probably the actual problem is on one of the images itself.

There is also one labelled secend edit, this should be second.

Birds Gallery:
Birds of Pray - should be Birds of Prey

Birds Waders:
Avoset should be Avocet

Think that is enough for you to be going with for now and I'll have another surf around tomorrow at the various galleries.

Hi Csurry, I see and understand what you say and take it onboard, it’s a habit I got into, on the home page, it will be quite a task to change but on the gallery correction is no problem and will do thank you.

Are you claiming all of these images to be yours? I am particularly interested in your response to the Harlequin Ladybird photograph, on the rose leaf top left.
