    I am just about finished with my new website and would like some final critiques on the layout and photo’s before I throw my computer out the window. It’s a love hate relationship. All the photo’s are by me with the exception of the “vintage photo” section. Thanks!

    wow, thats a pretty intense picture! I keep staring at it over and over :? It reminds me of planet of the apes haha. It's to bad the karma sign wasnt fully in the picture, it would give off an even stronger vibe.

    I hadn’t noticed that sign till about a year ago. This one was photographed in 1982. Since I discovered the Karma sign, the photo has tormented me ever since. It was shot with old Koda-color 400ASA film and recently converted to BxW.

    if you have photoshop you could just remove the karma sign with the rubber stamp tool or the clone tool 8)

    I wish I had shot the entire karma sign.

    It should be "photos" not "photo's". An apostrophe indicates possession, when what you wish to indicate is plurality.

    It's got a kind of un-design approach, but that said, it's pretty practical. I could look through your gallery of thumbnails just fine. I dig.

    hi photojunky

    i like your work. plenty of variety. you connect with your environments
    in a good way. the site i found straightforward. the _blank coding
    serving the initial gallery section choice is ok with me. on viewing a
    jpg served consequently in the same (_self) window, i did click x
    to move on - losing the thumb gallery i was hoping to return to.
    i know this is the trade-off when designing for quantity, rather than each
    jpeg being featured in its own htm (with a "return to gallery" link. it isnt a
    biggie, anyone interested in what they find when visiting will soon learn to
    cope. it was good to see Paypal as the method of payment rather than
    some peoples non-closing- "i sell photos, but hey dont spend your money
    right now - sleep on it, maybe drop me an e-mail if you remember my
    work sometime " . :D . however, it is worth considering embedding "buy
    item" paypal buttons for each item - this is easy to code with their wizard
    but obviously a degree of time and some faff. i think art is an impulsive
    purchase often. having dedicated "buy buttons" does retain a certain
    impetus to follow-through, even if a quick registration is necessary.




    like what you do..//jack
