    very similar to my last one... so I'll give you a 'excellent' report

    maybe oversharpened some of the pics.

    Don't get 10/10 because there's no link to APUG...

    Hi Peter,

    Looks pretty good for a first website. I found 1 dead link in your Misc. photos.

    Simple and easy to use. I like that. I would try with a different font (instead of Times New Roman). [FONT=Verdana][SIZE=3]Verdana[/SIZE][/FONT] or [FONT=Arial][SIZE=3]Arial[/SIZE][/FONT] would be good condidates. Times gets a bit ordinary on websites, and the others are more elegant IMHO.

    Greetings Morten

    I also like it, quite simple, and I would also suggest another font. Besides that, I think you should resize the frames so that there are no scroll bars.

    SImple, easy, good photographs (especially two front teeth). I would say a job well done.

    Thanks, everyone, for your comments and suggestions. Some of them have been implemented already! Regarding frame sizes, I'll have to figure that out. (Yes, I am a Dreamweaver ignoramous.) I agree with the comment about oversharpening. I'm also having some issues with proper amounts of compression. Regarding Mark's favorite photo, be careful! Out of all the photographs, including one's taken with a 4x5, you picked one taken with a 2mp point'n'shoot

    I think it works very well and agree with previous feedback.

    My suggestion would be to create navigation from one gallery into the other 3 without having to go via Photographs button on LH nav bar. I would also be trying to work out how I was going to expand the capability in terms of galleries and no of photos in each as you continue to make your excellent images.

    I am currently struggling with both of these issues as I contemplate designing a new one for myself. Sorry, currently unable to offer solutions as they continue to elude me!

    Well I guess I am off to confession and a few hundred hail analogues for that slip up. Still a good picture
