Before the site was finished loading, I could tell it was a Smugmug site. Not that there is anything wrong with SM, but it looks similar to a lot of other sites.

I'm using a 1024 x 768 monitor and your logo/banner is being cut. Basically I can't read your logo unless I zoom out at 75% to read your whole site. I shouldn't have to do that.

Same as aboved poster says. Logo is upper left corner is cut. Also, the narrative type should be brighter so it would stabd out and be easier to read.

I would never had noticed the logo unless you had told me it was there. Also using a 1024 x 768 monitor.

Font is hideous. Stick to a sans-serif (Helvetica, arial, etc.) It will be much easier for people to read. Is there anyway to add a background behind the text? I know you are using SM so the options might be limited. The wood can be very distracting.

Try having a form for your site and take off a link to your email. This will certainly get you a ton of spam going to your email.

Very nice improvement in the web site. By the way, you have some great pictures in your porfolio.

It's better but I'm not a fan of the mouse over color for the text. The white on light gray can be tricky to see on bright uncalibrated displays.

I forgot to change that when I went from a dark background to a light one. Thanks for the heads up.

Not too bad...took a while to load.

Clean, images are sharp and look good. This is good.

However...smile in your "about me' section. you scare me in it. Also loose all the long words in the profile....What the heck do you mean 'Every part of the process is vetted'?????

Contact information....3 ways of getting you.Well done.
