    My thoughts as well. Many of the photos benefit from the blurring, many don't. It had begun to look like a gimmick after a while. I thought most if not all the compositions stood up well on their own w/o the technique applied.

    Having done nothing but beat on him, I should also add that I think he is a very talented photographer. I enjoyed both his work and his site.

    Here is a site I took over from anouther developer 3 years ago. I inherited the structure so I can't take all the credit/blame for it.
    laszlfoto.com
    I will be rebuilding it later this year.
    Here is a small photog's site I built a couple years back. I like this site and will gladly take the credit/blame. I also feel it is pretty effective.

    I agree with everything Doug says with one caveat. JavaScript will work as advertised in all mainstream, up to date, browsers and most 2nd tier. The broblem is generally not JavaScript but the Document Object Model (DOM) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) support or implementation of the browser.

    Mozilla/Netscape/FireFox follows the DOM and CSS closely and has excellent documentation on where it doesn't comply.

    IE is close and far easier to work with, but often sets its own standard which leaves complient browsers out in the cold or the coder is left to write parrallel methods or an additional browser layer.

    Safari has some fairly major issues, particularly with block elements and images (img).

    I plead guilty--top banner, left side menu, right side display space (not that different from center), scrollbar for the menu frame, depending on screensize.

    Now that I look at it, the top bar doesn't really do much. I had plans for it originally, but I could probably replace it with a link back to the main page in the menu frame.

    Design suggestions that don't introduce browser incompatibilities, require plug-ins, or slow things down are welcome. I pretty much hand code everything, but occasionally I'll use a shareware program called Web Weaver, which has some handy shortcuts for tables and such.

Who knows what his other stuff looks like. He's has what? about 200 photos on his web site. He must have about 100,000 paid images somewhere in his repertoire. I'm sure a majority of it is not blurred like that.

    His plugercam inspired me to take apart one of my old Holgas and stick the lens in front of my digicam. It didn't work. I don't know 'nuf of lens design to get that right. My next project (get in back of the line like all the other projects), is to get a bellows and some cheap lenses you get at the scientific store (you know, the one you used in 6th grade and made a telescope). That pretty much is how Lensbabies are made anyway.

    David everything you are doing with frames could be done with the div tag and the addition of positioning via the style attribute:
    <div name="banner" style="position:absolute; top:0; left:0; width:100%; height:15%; overflow:hidden;">David G's big bad Photo Web Site</div>


    <div name='menu' style="position:absolute; top:15%; left:0; width:20%; height:100%; overflow:auto;">menu items would go here</div>

    <div name='mainContent' style="position:absolute; top:15%; left:20%; width:80%; height:100%; overflow:auto;">David's big bad photo's</div>


    Bad, of course being good in this instance.

    Thanks, John! I don't think that tag existed (or maybe there was some browser issue) when I started putting this together some 3 or 4 years ago, but it would streamline things. I'll save that post for the next redesign.

    One of my favorite web site is fellow APUGer George Losse`s. Clean, plain, uncluttered on no black background which, personnaly, I quite dislike. Check it out www.georgelosse.com

    I agree with David, I see no need for those shadows, but overall this is the kind of site I like. If it wasnt for the shadows it would be perfect as far as I am concerned.

    Gotta be simple and quick to get to the good stuff. In saying that; if the objective is to present the images as fine-art prints, I think there is some benefit in making the viewing feel a great deal of effort has gone in to the presentation of them.

    Have you seen Andrew Eccles site? A good example of leading the viewer through the images. Quite a formal presentation. http://www.andreweccles.com/

    [font=Verdana]Want grandiose?! Perhaps a bit too much for me but he does it well. It's more formal also (upper end wedding photographer).[/font]
    [font=Verdana]Lester de Vere [/font]http://www.lester.co.nz/startpage.html

    It's ALL about the Images. Nice and simple, easy but effective menu.
    Maria Sainsbury http://www.mariasimages.com/

    I'm sure Glen (Deckled Edge) wouldn't mind having his new website pointed out as a good example of one that is menu driven and effective for presenting LF images (imo) http://www.gwishon.com/

    Want flashy FLASH - it isn't photography, but take a look at THIS!:

    have fun, John.
