Looks like https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1377065 still applies, as I see no changes done since then.

Hi Pekka,

I think you might have misread my post, I am asking for comment and criticism of the site ready for a redesign.

Hi Pekka,

I think Pekka was referring to your last re-design and none of the issues he brought up were fixed. I see you never came back to acknowledge any of the issues other members suggested.

If we critique again, are you going to come back to at least say "Thanks"?


You have some nice work, but the site just doesn't wow me. I looked at your 'Owl' page (my youngest daughter loves Owls), and it took a while to load, and I have to scroll to the right to see them.

Your site doesn't format well on My tablet using Chrome in either landscape or portrait mode. I always browse in portrait mode.

Text is at the left edge, lots of blank space, too many different fonts, and in your about I would remove any mention about a photo club you belong to. You want your about page to be about you and only you.

Ditto.

I'd stay away of 'picture river' web pages for presentation: they are by default painfully slow to load.

Looks like I was correct. The OP has left the building.... :rolleyes:
