    Hi Nigel,

    Just checked out your website, just wanted to say that I liked the layout you've chosen for your website. However I feel that the gallery style works for and against you at the same time, for because it's a great way to display your photos and when you click on the image and it brings you to another page with just that image plus the description. Against because the picture sizes/ratios vary a lot and detracts away from a sense of consistency within your site when its in the gallery form.
    • It would be nice to have a logo or button at the top to press to bring you back to the home page or to a centralised page.
    • There is a lot of dead space in your about me page, an image of yourself would work well.
    • The font colour for your pages definitely needs to be changed, it's hard to read what I'm navigating to.
    Anyway, just my opinion :)

    The main menu is difficult to spot, not only because it's at the bottom of the page (top is the most commonly used convention these days), but also because the light grey text is difficult to see on that background. Adding a main menu to the top of each page (including the main page, rather than the "Enter" butotn) will make your website a lot easier to navigate.

    The start picture on my calibrated monitor has a green/yellow cast and is not pleasant to the eye. At first I could not see the menu at the bottom of the page this needs sorting with a more bold coloring on the lettering or placed higher in the frame......I don't like the bold white Intro at the start, other than that all's fine, and you have a nice spread of pictures on there......

    You might want to ask someone to help you proofread and edit your opening text - there are quite a lot of grammatical errors there and I do think it's important, if you're going to use text to introduce yourself, to make sure that it's well written.

    I think you'll find the OP has done a runner, that was his one and only post, some three months ago...

    It's working for me, but the original post was 3 years ago and I don't think we've heard from him since.

    It opens but appears to no longer have any content beyond one page.

    The menus are listed along the bottom of the "About" page, once you have entered the site, but you have to scroll down to find them.

    Sorry, my bad. I am new and I got to "Web Sites of Interest" section without looking on the date the thread was updated.

    Yes, just tried and the menus are barely visible against the background.

    No worries. It happens to the best of us. :)

    The text-background contrast on the 'about' page needs to be stronger, as many others have already commented. In the galleries, 'standardizing' the placing of the picture titles in the middle is all very well but there are cases where, because of background details, placing the title at the bottom would improve the legibility.

    Like other people it was hard to get into becase I didnt scroll do/wn and find the 'ennter ' link AND all the page links on bottom is not user friendly, the photos are nice :rolleyes:
