I had created my own web page a while ago using the free adobe portfolio that they bundle with lightroom. I was never quite happy with it though, so last year I bought a domain, and created a new page to showcase my work. I couldn't find the time to work on it much up until now, so it was just a basic gallery. A few weeks ago I decided to finally update it to something that looked a bit more professional. So here is the final result, after a massive update and a lot of re-organisation behind the scenes, I hope you all like it!


Any feedback would be welcome!

Overall, I like the clean look of it but…
I would add 50% to the outer edges
Reduce the font size dramatically in the scrollable area
Make sure photos on the same line are of the same size.

You're up to something very good, Pete! :encouragement:

I think those are good suggestions and they would better highlight those gorgeous photos!

Just an fyi - the Sunset Tide link is broken.

Thanks NS, I've taken onboard the points about the font and adding a bit of space, which I've now changed.

Getting the photos to line up is a bit more challenging. It's squarespace I've used to create the site, and they seem to be resizing the width rather than the height by default. I can't find an easy way to do it, short of using a default which crops everything to the same aspect ratio. I'll have a look into it, but may need to learn and write some CSS to implement that.

Great catch Limr, thanks! The link is now fixed and taking on board the comments!
