    Good start. I would lose the search box until you have plenty of content. Also there's a bit of a bug on that template as the photos box is overlapped on the search which I'll ask the IT guys to fix.

    There are a couple of issues that you might want to address.

    The fixed position background photo makes the black text that sits over the top of it almost impossible to read. As a photo can have lots of areas of colour its not a great idea to use text over the top in case the colour of the text merges with a colour in the image.

    I would suggest removing the photo all together and perhaps look at having a featured image at the top of the page instead. Or perhaps use a solid background for the content area and a photo behind everything else?

    This is how the text currently looks:


    This is what the page looks like with a solid background:


    Or you could use some CSS3 magic:


    This one sets an opacity of 0.95 onto the background so the content behind shows through.

    There are also some validation issues with the site. There is a center tag used to wrap the entire content for instance. You can see a from W3C's validator: W3C. Invalid markup can hamper your SEO which will make it harder for people to find you.

    Hope this helps
