I did not think he was being defensive at all, just explanatory. Just saying...alleging defensiveness if rather overreaching, IMO. Buuuut...the deer and fox shot...not a shot made by the site owner? Ehhh...not too fond of that. Anyway...plenty of things could be improved on the layout I think. Optimized for mobile devices? Maybe yes, but also maybe no. A version that's decent on mobile devices? Most definitely a YES! Optimized for mobile usually means short sentences and skimpy text; if that's what you want, then so be it. Personally, I think that the site owner needs to determine what the thrust of the site is; is it for people to browse at lunch on a phone? Or to read in-depth information on a real screen? The site is ostensibly aimed at photography enthusiasts, most all of whom have big, kick-butt screens, so perhaps the actual goal of the site needs to be considered when determining things like type size, leading, and line lengths, etc..
