I enjoyed my visit to your site.
When you first click on the link, you get "Welcome to the Frontpage" in the tabs of my tabbed browser (Firefox). If you click on any of the internal links, the name of those links shows in the tabs.
It would be really good if "Eric Rose" appeared in some or all of those tabs.
I'm not going to criticize your site but wanted to say that the photography is really excellent. Nice going.
Ya that's been bugging me too. I have to figure out how to change it.

I'm a graphic designer (and just a hobbiest photograher) so my perspective might be a bit different.
I feel you still need to develop some kind of brand. That doesn't mean an over-the-top logo, but you need something IMO. Yep, a graphic isn't as good for google indexing, but the current site title looks terrible and detracts from your image as a fine art photographer.
It's screaming for some nice typography which will add a sense of branding and ultimately credibility. Photos are wonderful - but the overall 'brand' is ordinary to me. Sorry if this sounds harsh.
Great observation. Maybe you can send me some examples of what you mean.

Now to start work on the descriptions.
Nice job so far. One thing I noticed is that when you click on the bottom navigation to go through the portfolios, <Prev or Next> navigates opposite from what the user would expect, given the navigation list on the left side of the page. <Prev goes down the list and Next> goes up, I'd change that. One other thing, I'd lose the file size on the thumbnails if you can figure that out, just to clean the page up.
Nice job on the site and great photos too!
Thanks Adam. I have no control over how it places the prev/next links unfortunately. I might adopt a different gallery system in the future but this one works for "now".
I have figured out how to add descriptions and eliminate the file sizes. A project for the next couple of days.
I appreciate everyone taking the time to check things out and give me some constructive feedback. :D
The text in a Firefox tab is just the page title for the page in that tab. Change the TITLE element for the page to contain your name and it is done.
