hello everyone (as usual sorry for my bad english) :oops:
after some months on Canon Forums I want to signal my website of nature photography
It is not new (the photos have been viewed over 1.000.000 times) but but I am continually adding photos. There are more than 4000 pictures between macro and animals and also views of Italian cities

I took a brief look. If you want a viewer to enjoy your website, show your best of your best. 4000 photos will overwhelm and make a visitor get lost and lose interest. For instance you have two different "winter" galleries within Landscapes along with a "iced trees" gallery.

Consider having no sub-galleries within your Landscape gallery for instance. Pick out your best of your best instead of your best and all the rest. Don't concentrate on locations but as the landscape category in general.

What is your goal with all the pictures. At the moment you are using your web as a storage place.
You should ask yourself what is your main purpose of your website.
Your main page should have a menu bar and I would create as one of the menu buttons an "Archive" button to put pictures there and keep it separate from your most reason and favorite pictures. Your profile is also not yet finish. I guess that profile is something like a bio from yourself.
I have to search on your main page where to click to see the pictures on a larger scale or to see them as a powerpoint presentation. I like the grey colors and have noticed that these colors are the best for showing pictures. You are on the right track.

I agree with the two previous people.

You need to narrow down your images to your BEST images for your galleries. I think you could keep the images to 20-40 in each category with top-notch images that would really set you apart if someone saw just those images. Its one of those problems when you have a good photographer with too many images on his website to exactly see what the hecks going on with so many images to view. Great photography on the site, you have some talent sir! :)

Hello and thanks David
I'm thinking about how to do because I like to show all the species encountered in my travels and even the best macro of the year but are so many every year

I do like your shots and your site have lots of potentials . I do agree though with others that you have too many shots on display. Keep up the good work.

Then focus your portfolio on what you specialize in. And don't have a gallery solely on iced trees and 2 galleries on landscapes!

Hi Robert

but in fact the first gallery is devoted to the macro and the second to my best shots
Then I do not understand: I have not two galleries devoted to the landscapes but one,
and no one dedicated to the icy trees
