I like the black background. Would like to see the top image fit the category, for instance, in "BIRDS IN FLIGHT" would have a flying bird instead of an aircraft.
"Copyright" in the US needs to be "© 201X YourName" or "Copyright 201X YourName" to qualify under Section 1202 of the U.S. Copyright Act which makes it illegal for someone to remove the watermark from your photo so that it can disguise the infringement when used. The fines start at $2500 and go to $25,000 in addition to attorneys' fees and any damages for the infringement.

The non-generic header is OK, but I would still want to put the best of each category at the top if it was my site.
I'm seeing an awful lot of empty black space at the top of the page (FFox & Win7). Can you tighten it up a little?

Im doing the alterations as frank suggested, starting from the top menu and working down each menu at a time, not all have been corrected yet.

On a similar subject frank, is there a way to get rid of over sharpened halos in Jpeg photos? ...
I have LR5.

Sorry, but I don't use LR, & don't have a quick fix in PS, either. Maybe someone in RAW & PP does.

If you are getting "halos" from sharpening - it is either coming from your camera settings, or from your processing. I can't think of a camera manufactured today that would automatically sharpen so much as to add artifacts to the images. Look at your import preset settings if you are using Lightroom. But even then, Lightroom by itself would not over sharpen. Really look through your workflow and see where it might be being introduced. That said, over sharpened images is pretty common. Make sure your not getting to carried away with the "clarity" slider.
