i like it. it's easy to navigate.

the first thumbnail in each set is higher than the rest. what's the deal? (see here)

your language in the journal section could be more professional.

i generally like lightboxes, but if one of your visitors wants to show a friend a specific image, they can't link to one specifically.

good job.

They look fine in Safari.

Agree. It certainly shows your personality, but potential serious clients could be turned off by saying things like "get my ass in gear" :-o

I think this is infinitely better than what you first started out with! Good job sticking with it.

weird.. I checked it on safari, firefox, and IE and it looks fine for me.

I guess that is the less formal, and more personal section of the website. I understand being professional, but I want it to be a place where I can share photos that don't go into portfolios. Being a professional doesn't mean I have to be a tight ass.
*edit*
Most of the time, I won't really have any text on the journal page anyways.

>I think this is infinitely better than what you first started out with! Good job sticking with it.

a myspace photography page would have been better than that ;)

+1 on that. It was the first thing I noticed and if I had been looking for someone I would have closed the page.

I must say, I really like the rock stacks

btw. I have horizontal scroll bars on my screen, a more flexible layout (Width-wise) might be a bit better.

Lustre and Glossy, what's the difference? What's better?
And you get money from the prints, right?

> Lustre and Glossy, what's the difference?

it's similar to the difference between the finish on a thinkpad lcd and the finish on a macbook lcd, respectively.

> What's better?

it's purely a matter of preference, in my opinion. gloss makes colors more vibrant, but it can be more troublesome if the lighting isn't perfect. really, it's similar to the benefits and costs of the respective lcd finishes.

i've been doing a lot of non-gloss work lately, but i think i'm going to go back to gloss.

I prefer lustre. it is a bit more matte than glossy and doesn't reflect as much.

and I get paid (85% - cost to print)

>btw. I have horizontal scroll bars on my screen, a more flexible layout (Width-wise) might be a bit better.

What resolution are you using?

I've edited that first post down to make it more appropriate. I guess I can see what you guys mean.

Thanks for the explanation, I think I'll go for lustre.

In case you hadn't figured it out, I am seriously considering buying a print of one of those rock stack pics. Not sure which one, maybe this?

Also, is it just me or are the images post-processed?

in what way? Pretty sure that I only sharpened them and maybe adjusted the exposure on a few.

I didn't get the frame today :-( I went by my mom's first, and that was rather nice. So I stayed too long and the shops were closed when I left ...

I've never heard of Kiva, but looking at their website I really like it!

It's such a more constructive way of helping people, treating people as intelligent and self-sufficient human beings fully capable of helping themselves who just have been born into unfortunate circumstances.
This is different from many other "classic" aid which treats people as stupid dogs which need to be fed every few days.
