    Hi there ! I'm not a huge fan of solid black backgrounds. Also I feel the use of bright green and yellow typography is distracting and taking the focus away from your great photos.

    I always thought the black background was easier on the eyes & made picture look better (maybe it's a light sensitivity issue), but I suppose I can tone down or reduce the size of the Font on the Gallery pages,
    or maybe remove it completely. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Anyone else have thoughts.......

    PHOTO EDITING NOT OK
    The black colour background and the fonts in the website just does not blend in well. No doubt that it is very contrast but it looks kind of dull.

    We all should learn from the pro ===> Digital Photography Tips: Digital Photography School

    1. The colour scheme seems awkward to me. I think standard black text on a white background would better serve you.

    2. The header is too big and the menu links are too small.

    3. I'm not clear on the purpose of the site. Are these your photos, user submissions or found images from the web? Who are you? What's your background, why did you create this site? It seems like you are trying to create a photoblog, but without the blog part. I think a proper photoblog would be a better way to go.

    I have already altered the the color scheme a couple of times ( & may again in the future), I tend to like darker backgrounds when looking a pictures (to me it's easier on the eyes).
    The header maybe reduced in the future (most likely) & menu link also changed. I have RE-learned since the origin of this site is that "you can't please all of the people all of the time (including yourself). Just do your best.

    The purpose of the site is "somewhat" explained in the about page. To share photos, I have taken many photos & decided to share some with family & friends in e-mails. Having them just sit on the computer was almost senseless. The e-mails got such a positive response a website was created (after learning how this winter). To date, these are all my photos. I try to have at least 20 "acceptable" photos in a gallery before posting them. As to where the website is headed.... I'm not sure, I have a few ideas.
    Until I get used to the internet I prefer to remain somewhat anonymous. I have dabbled with cameras for a long time, but I do not work in the photography field.
    Since the creation of the website, I will try a little harder for more interesting photos....

    Thanks for your input

    pro websites are white. Also give up that colored font. Graphic buttons are a little amateuristic. Maybe its better without graphics. Slideshow is great.
    Keep it simple. Good luck.
