    MODS- Just noticed I posted this in the wrong forum. Could someone please move it to Photographic Discussions? Thanks:biggrin:.

    Hi-

    I'm friends with the photographer on the following website. I'm really blown away by his photos. Is this just me or are these like, National Geographic level photos? Wix.com - Website built by alextullis based on Minimal Design Pro

    Phil,

    They're good. I certainly like 'em. National Geographic level? Eh...Look at Steve McCurry's work (no, not just Afghan Girl; his other work is just as stunning).

    Your friend definitely has an understanding of light. The site is indeed a POS though. Tell him to host on something like SquareSpace, or at least buy Wix's no-ads, no-logos, no-bother-the-frack-out-of-visitors-by-being-obvious-about-the-hosting-service-being-free package. It's a paltry sum to pay, when you consider how much it adds to one's image to have a clean site free of branding. (At least SquareSpace does it with some tact.)

    Wow.. POS just clicked.. Lol, I'm tired.. :blushing:.

    Thanks CA! I agree the site sucks. But the photos themselves from my perspective are like, scary good:thumbup:. If he asks my opinion of the site I'll tell him but we left off our friendship while we (I, at least) were pretty pissed at each. I think to mend the friendship, I'll stick to compliments unless asked for now;).

    Nice shots but definitely not National Geographic level. BTW, Nat Geo doesn't do weddings. :lmao:

    He has to work on that site. :confused:
