Very nice a W3C Valid page ... good job ...

First thing I think would be good, are rollovers, none of the links have rollovers, and that is a bit irritating to me ...

Then please don't you want to disable the link of the page that a user is on, for example if a user is on the "city" page, then you could disable the "city" link and make it another colour (or rollover state),so that the user know where he/she is and that he/she doesn't redirect to the page that he/she is on at the moment ...

Please get someone to double check the grammar on the site, I see some errors there ...

On the "home" page there is a huge gap between the content and the bottom of the page with nothing in it at all ... maybe fill that up with something, or make the page shorter ... Same thing on the "contact" page ...

Maybe also within each section, begin at number 1, instead of no number at all ... what I mean is, you've got there now "cat picture, cat picture1, cat picture2" ... I think you should rather change it to "cat piture1, cat picture2, cat picture3" ... Just my opinion though ...

I don't really like the colour scheme you've got going there, it makes me think more of a cement factory than a photo website ...

I think it would be much better if you start using CSS and DIV's instead of tables, and I think you should take a day or two and just clean up that code of yours ... it looks real sloppy ...

Hi there, I am attracted by your excellent pictures!

My points here
First, the page is too long, when I roll it down, and nothing is at the bottom. You need to add more content or cut the page.
Second, add links at the bottom. That's important.
Third, make use of title and description, it's good for SEO.

Besides, you could make a slideshow on the index page to show your best pictures like this. It will make your website live.

All in all, it is a nice website.

BTW, the picture on page http://www.freepictureclick.com/other.html is unavailable.

I dont like the design.Seems like no effort has been added to design the websit..Why have you used italicised text in the main menu?

Try and give a new and attractive look to the website.

You know you can put that in your footer, then you don't have to type it everytime ... and also if you don't it might get reported as spam ...

hi,

your doctype is missing the specific dtd section such as "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd" . Here it is the link for good info:

http://www.w3.org/QA/2002/04/valid-dtd-list.html

I am o.k with your colors. Itlized text will decrease the readability of your website. There is a gap on the top most right of the header when your site is browsed by IE7 and FF 1.0.7. I can send you a screen capture of what I see in here.

Have you checked for WCAG? I have good info about usability, accessibility , Layout stability, Web content accessibilty in my portfolio located at http://cssfreelancer.atspace.com . You are welcome to check it out and use my email in my portfolio if you want me to send you screen captures of the gap that i mentioned before.

As an XHTML / CSS freelancer / Front end coder , I believe in providing a proper "layout stability" for websites to increase the readability and usability of the sites. " Best Picture" section of your site is not stable, causing the readability problems when the browser's window is resized. You need to fix it.

Having a horizontal scroll bar will decrease the usability of your site at the resolution of 800 * 600. You are welcome to check out the "other design consideration" section of my portfolio for some good tips.

Add some text to the footer section such as copyright and so on.
