Hello everyone!

I have completely updated my travel photography website having developed a far better post-production process using Lightroom 2.0. While Photoshop did the jobs I wanted it to before, using Lightroom has definitely made me more comprehensively tweak my photos, and I think it has improved my shots.

You can check it out at : http://www.wix.com/stevesayskanpai/photography

I'd genuinely like any feedback, as it definitely helps you improve, particularly anything on the technical aspects. I worry increasingly that my interest in photography is becoming a historical thing - but upcoming trips to Turkey and Croatia - plus living in London - should give me the impetus to get back out there and start shooting!

SSK

You get around a bit, don't you?!

The photos are all fantastic. Here are a few suggestions on the site.

I find the website too sluggish to hold my attention for long - especially the splash page (I was about to quit). Maybe you could try reducing the file sizes of the images, or at least have a user option to do so. A small decrease in quality can improve performance substantially.

Also, you have some duplicated photos with different PP. I think choosing only one is best.

Yes, it's a big sluggish. Making it faster would make it much more enjoyable.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of music on websites, but your mileage may vary. :)

Thanks for your input guys!

Yeah I agree its sluggish, although with Flash software that is sometimes the nature of the beast. I've already reduced file size, so not really sure what I can do...

As for the music, yes I turn it off every time I visit - but the first time I visited I did like it! ^^ Anyway, that's why the pause / stop button is there on the homepage.
