I agree with the people above me..

The Diablo fonts are a bit "not done" here. That fits a Diablo/Medieval/gothic site.
The pictures are also a bit too big. They mess up your layout.


I really love the Flash sites. They look great but most of them are hard to navigate. Thomas Lowe.. yours looks great.
Maybe lightboxes or fancyboxes would make it even better. Then you dont have to scrol down to see the complete picture.

Btw. this is my website. I just created it. It is my first website (well I made one at school years ago with notepad). I created it with Joomla.
It is Dutch by the way, but fotogalerij means photo gallery. :wink:

Hi Kevin
I like the color scheme and the simple layout.
I think that the picture frames are not that good though
It's a distracting element and won't be appropriate for any kind of picture. In general, framing a picture is an art actually, that has its rules, and can enhance or ruin a picture. I know that from a professional framer that I used to know, and there are very few, if any, frame types that will work for everything. So, in my opinion, it's better not to use them in a web site that has to have a consistent layout.
Hope that helps

Yes, I think so. Also, when you click to zoom, it would be better to open the enlarged picture in a separate window, the gallery in background is distracting too. I don't know if you have that option in the builder though.

In my opinion, it's better now. The only thing is that when one clicks on a photo it's redirected to your flickr. It should be a page in your site with the enlarged shot.
