wasn't sure where to post this or if it's ok to do so, but i thought i'd try.

i've been working on my website, and would love to hear any kind of feedback, if you feel like taking a look.

some of you have been following this thread, so here's the website

some of the suggested changes came after things were already in place, but this is definitely still a work in progress. only the first gallery is ready, so far.

i'm already looking at some things with horror, but i'll wait to hear them from anyone who wants to comment. thanks! - lu

Here is one tip. Put your contact details on EVERY page.

I like the overall look.

First overall impression was of class and professionalism. The colour is pleasant on the eye and not at all harsh, did find it slow to load but that might just be my system. I would make the picture boxes all the same size though, just an aesthetic thing but look forward to seeing to whole site, in fact I cant wait... K.

Good overall front page, looks quite fresh and professional. Most sites have menus on the top and left, not many put them to the right, that's a nice touch. Maybe use a deeper colour to the text on the gallery link heading text as some monitors and bright lighting may make it difficult to read. Maybe add a brief introduction on the front page, which gives people information straight away, as Keith said about your contact details. And it uses up a little of the empty space you have free, but, don't clutter it. Looking good. Only my opinion of course and it's free! Smile

So far I really like it - the colours are easy to look at and the site loads fast. I can't wait to see the rest of it

Sorry Lucie on reflection I think I was nitpicking, think its because they are all the same size on the first page but when you click on the thumbnail you have two portrait and two landscape. Sorry.

hey, don't be sorry. i wondered about that. i don't mind cropping the thumbs to be the same shape. i was even considering making them the same tone.

also, i wondered if i should move the thumbs to the other side of the page so that the viewer doesn't have to move the mouse all the way to the other side, once in the gallery, and then back to click "next" through the pictures. and that way the girl wouldn't be covered when the photos are closed. any thoughts? - lu

Good looking site, have you considered using layers to display the images rather than reloading the page each time.

Forgot to tick the reply box.

That could be a good idea, anything to cut down on browse time but personally I found it nice that the layout changed slightly from the front page but I think what I meant about the pictures is that there is a degree of uniformity to the site, does that make sense?
