Pretty colors.

The Clients link is "Not Found". That's a bad thing.

I think that it is a better choice to have no picture at all on one's About page, rather than an image of the photographer behind a camera. But that's just me.

Too many images for a portfolio. Edit, edit, edit. Be ruthless in judging yourself and culling out marginal images.

Suggesting improving sharpening skills.

Too images on the home slide show? Is that what you meant by portfolio? Fixed the Client link I have their galleries set in private so they weren't displaying without a password. Issue is now resolved thanks for the heads up. I appreciate your opinion about not posting an image with the photographer behind a camera I'll have to do some more self portraits I guess. LOL Do you think the images aren't sharp enough?

You asked for it. ...:minism:...


1... 'Rotation' of pics seems fast to me on the home page. Maybe it is my DSL connection. But it does take a second or two for the pic to fully load then ...bam ...on to the next one. Do not spend lots of time on photographers' sites ...so I have no idea how others do it.



2... I consider myself a 'wordie' as well as a still-learning (very much so..!!) photographer ...so I really looked at your [About] page.

Introduce yourself..!! I should not have to go to your [Contact] page to learn your name.

Either a ' Hi, I am Tony Vasquez ' type of introduction . . .or sign (in text or your own handwriting, if legible) the bottom of your page text.



3... The [About] page. Ditto the thought about the 'behind the camera' pic. It might work if you add a real portrait shot elsewhere on the page. I think peeps wanna see you ...not your camera.



4... The 'eye' pic on your [Contact] page is creepy to me. The extra 'linear' stuff behind the eyelashes is odd to me. Is that the model's hair..?? And is that a bowl of gumballs..?? Just odd. Maybe just me.



5... The [Portraits] page is missing some 'sequenced' thumbnails. I would think this is already being addressed..??



6... A [Search] function..?? Not sure what I would be searching for.

The smugmug link overlays it also . . .causing problem ...depending on what screen size I am using. Leaving some 'dead space' under the list of links might help.



Anyway . . .just some thoughts. I will leave the pic/photography critiquing to those more qualified.


Overall I like it..!!


...tom...

Thank you for the feedback. I have done some tweaking such as I slowed down the home page slideshow. Fixed gallery display issues and dead links. I also added a new photo on my about me page and included more info on the page. I cleaned up side menu to eliminate search feature. As far the sharpening of the images they all have been sharpened?? Not sure how to improve that. Lastly the images I have selected on the homepage are a small sampling of different types of photography I shoot. They are what I consider my top 20 images and I'm not sure if that should be scaled down any more. What does anyone think? Again thanks for all the great feedback.
