    Hi,

    had a quick look at your website - image wise I've really only looked at your landscapes as that's my main interest

    You have some nice shots, the sunsets are excellent - just a bit of a "heads up", one or two of the landscape shots need their horizons straightening

    On the website design I personally find the homepage perhaps a little "messy" with the "random images" & "latest additions" sections. I wonder if perhaps 2 or 3 main images linking directly to the galleries would be neater

    Just a few of my thoughts anyway, I'm not an expert so please ignore them if you don't agree

    look forward to seeing more of your landscapes in the future

    simon

    i like the ps effects you did with the first 'moon' shot.

    seems cluttered, but it's not too bad :)

    I don't rate coppermine. I tried it myself for a website or two (not photography related) and I found the layout not that easy on the eye or to navigate, especially for non-IT type folk.

    I recommend Gallery2. It's free (like Coppermine) but better.

    Nice shots though.

    You have some first-class images, however if I might suggest, it wouldn't hurt to scale them down a little, say 800x600 @ 75 dpi. A lot of the world is still on dial-up and 700-900 Kb files are a little much for many people. Ideally files should be <100 Kb, and 50-75 Kb is ideal.
