apologies for yet another members website thread. but i would really love your feedback, if it wasnt for ephotozine i would never have even reached the stage of even thinking about a photo website. have a look and let me know what you think.

Very impressive. Great photography. Great site. Well done. Is this your first attempt at a web site? What software did you use to create it?

Hi Danny, just browsed your site - its great and really different, easy to navigate - very effective with the small thumbnails on the left and big pic in the middle. Refreshingly different. I love it, well done.

On the down side (get it out the way with first - sorry) I find it slow to load, I'd also prefer that when you hover over a thumbnail image the description box you have on the right changes with the thumbnail rather than having to click on it. You have a spelling mistake in the news section and I'm not sure that the bar at the bottom works for me, I find sites that make you jump from bottom to top and left to right hard work, these are purely personal points of view though. On the plus side its graphically superb, the content amazing and if there were an award for web site design you'd get it. Brilliant work Mr Warburton. K.

thanks everyone.

k, firstly, ur on dial up so its bound to be slow ;op all photos are less than 80k, theres nothing much else i can do :o\ and the bar at the bottom, well, thats for the menu that i dont think people will be using as much as the top, so they are down there out of the way of the good stuff up the top :o) spelling mistake? doh, i'll get onto it right away, not had a chance to have a proper look through yet, thought i would get you lot to do that :oD

In a word...stunning. In several words... I really like the style - it loads super fast on broadband. Even though I can't recall navigation like this, it was still very simple to find my way around without any doubt.
Thanks also for the mention of ePHOTOzine.
Hope it brings you lots of success. I still prefer you other site in terms of graphical treatment, especially the choice of going green or orange.
Nice one!

The wardrobe door is locked! Tried it in Opera, nothing loaded, tried it in Mozilla Firebird, could not find any photos! Reluctantly, I tried IE (I hate it!)and there's a bar with the photo links that does not appear in Mozilla. Liked the navigation.

Frank raises an interesting point. I tried Firebird and the top navigation bar is indeed missing. Here are some stats of viewers of our site and the browsers they use.

MS Internet Explorer 86.3%
Mozilla 6.1%
Safari 2.8%
Netscape 2.6%
Opera 1%
Unknown 0.7%

So with nearly 10% using Mozilla it would be worth making it work in that too.
