Wow, what kind of connection do you have? Works fine everywhere else I used. What part of the site are you referring too?

You might not want so many images on your landing page.

It will slow everything down.

Put your best shot or two on there and then create categories/slideshows etc for the others. That would be my advice.

its slow, check: http://tools.pingdom.c​om …order=1&type=0&​save=false (external link)

you might want to optimize homepage for loading, check with pingdom often, you want to be in 2-3 sec range otherwise people will just run away.

it is really slow here as well

I also couldn't work out what the domain was until I went to the site, though it was half ale mon photography and was a bit WTF is that. I think halflemonphotography would have been better.

otherwise I like the design, though that recent visitors box in the sidebar looks out of place design wise

Ok, looks like I'll have to reduce the size of the images about 50%. It's half a lemon photography. Not half ale mon photography. Originally I was going to name it Lemphoto.com, but someone took that already. I might go for blphoto.com we'll see if that's been taken already.

It seems most of your images are at a larger resolution than they show on the screen. (Because you scale them using HTML.) For my page I made a script that automatically makes a smaller version of my images when I upload them, so that the image file is actually only as big as it's shown, thereby saving a lot of bandwidth. You can't see the difference anyway unless you download the photos.

Slowwwwww for me here too. The photos on the first page ~10k each which is pretty large for that size (as noted before they are being resized in html which is a no no), reducing the file size and image size will speed up loading (since you have 25+ images plus other stuff you are at 1/4 of a MB which is huge). Popup images are huge as well, for that size they shouldnt be ~150kb each. Look at resizing to the proper display size versus resizing in HTML as noted above, also, when exporting to jpg choose something less than 100% quality - Ive never seen the difference between 90% and 100% at web resolutions though the filesize is significantly different.

Photo on the about me page doesnt show. I am not an English teacher but 'My Gears' isnt really gramatically correct. 'My Gears' page has 'Gears' as a title, I think it should match the navigation text. Also, do we really need a gear page?

I like the theme though and the pics are nice and I like the lightbox more than flash.

Note, surfed through it again and it seems faster and more responsive (maybe a shared server that was oversold?) - my previous suggestions still apply though.

- So I did a reduction in size from 100% - 60% in most jpeg images.
- Photo on about me page still need to upload again, I forgot about that page.
- My Gears, you're right that need to be fix
- Gear page - It's a reference page, made for visitor who are a beginner or just curious what tools I used to capture those images.

Thanx for letting me know of the problems.

I noticed it was a 'bit' slow but it wasn't too bad. My nitpick is the lemon in your logo is green and not yellow. I like the creativeness of the logo though!
