Hi friend:
Nice page...
Running it with Mozilla FF 3.04, the footer in in the container (about 150px in)... just a detail.

I liked it (Design and Theme). Congratulations.

Hi omar1piamba,

I'm not sure what you mean by the footer in the container? Can you please explain?

Thanks!

I really wish people knew that these links didn't get crawled so they wouldn't post a bunch of different links and anchor text :P
That said, the website looks like a clearance outlet from the early 90s. Am I there to buy electronic gadgets? No.

I understand it's a sales-based site, but most people interested in stock art are interested in design and know how to navigate - give them something not horrible on the eyes and they'll stay around.

Simplicity has worked for large sites like this - why do you think Facebook is still retardedly huge? Aside from being an awesome social networking tool, myspace made me nauseous. I guess that's what happens when you let anybody pick the background (and music!) of their own page.

It seems as if everybody like the site.

As a web designer, I happen to be very keen on the way the layout design is created and also how the contents are distributed on the page.

Few critiques:

Colors used (4 different colors) don't match together..
TABS: Clings to the top of the browser in 5 different browsers.
Content: Too condensed
Photos: Borders distract my attention from the photos itself.


Sorry to say this, but the only thing I like is the menu on the left hand side.

I think we've got a case of people being kind in hopes that you'll return the favor, because man, this page is not good. I get the impression that you're new to photoshop (be it the case or not) based on the logo. It's just a font with a drop shadow, nothing to it.

The menu on the left looks nice, however, you may want to look at using jquery or something of the sort to incorporate the subcategories. The plus is very deceiving.

I won't even click all the tabs up top, do you really need that many? Is it supposed to be intuitive to your sections?

The border around your pics are dark, bulky, and very distracting. They really take away from your work.

The footer shows a bit of color creativity - use that! Spice up the page a bit! Photography, to me, is the celebration of perceiving beauty with the eye - make your website a work of art.

I think overall it is nice.

However, I find the title font a bit too amatuerish.

Just my opinion, though.

The one thing I think I'd change is to create a header. Your logo is kinda cool but doesn't stand out under the tabs. I am, by far, no pro but I think you should try increasing the size and location of the logo. What I like about the logo is it's simplicity! Good luck. BTW, your photos are beautiful!
