  • My updated website!

    Hi!

    Few days ago I updated my website, added new works to the galleries.
    I hope you enjoy and I'll be happy for new collaborations!

    Re: My updated website!

    Hi Alina,

    Are you looking for constructive feedback? I will address your site itself as the photography is good and your retouching seems fine.

    1) The layout is huuuuge! I'm viewing it on a 27" iMac and it almost fills the entire screen at default size. Most people will only see a fraction of it.

    2) I don't personally like Flash-based websites. The navigation is difficult at best, like playing an arcade game (catch the photo before it goes by!).

    3) The spacing between menu items is not even at all (some words clump together).

    4) When looking at the enlarged samples, the "X" to close the image is not always visible, so I feel trapped.

    5) Your English is much better than my Russian, but you need to do a lot of correction on your About page for the English-speaking target market. For instance, "I pride myselves" should be "I pride myself"; "RAW format fails" should be "RAW format files"; "Your images won't be re-publish, before your permission to do that" should be "Your images won't be republished without your permission"; etc.

    Hope that helps!

      ? I'm on a smaller mac (with Firefox 8.0.1) and this wasn't a problem...the window resized dynamically. I just updated my flash player (10.2) yesterday...

      For e-mail addresses I prefer to mung them. Which hides them from bots...

        Re: My updated website!

        Good point, I run my browser large and didn't try resizing. Even so, it was way larger than other common sites I am used to viewing. Right now I'm on an iPad and can't view the site at all, so there's another reason to avoid Flash...

            On a 21" iMac the layout now seems much smaller, so it's not so much of a problem anymore. BTW, resizing the browser window (either Safari or Firefox) does not resize your site's content, which seems static.

                I offer a small suggestion: why use a hotmail account? It would appear more "professional" to have an email address like, "[email protected]", or something like that.

                  Looks better on the 27" iMac now.

                    Re: My updated website!

                    I have a few areas you may want to address:

                    The images are dynamically being enlarged, which is a good thing in my mind, the problem is I feel the images do not have enough resolution to be viewed very large (I'm viewing at 1900x1200). If you're clients won't be using super high res monitors it won't make a huge difference, but for those that are they may be slightly disappointed that they can't make out a lot of the fine detail. I would look at using higher resolution images or adjusting your compression settings. If that doesn't make them clearer, it could just be a result of the dynamic resizing and not much to be done about it.

                    Also, I did notice the menu items bunching up. It's fine on half of them but the spacing is way off on the right side.

                    Keep pluggin' away! You're almost there!

                      Awesome suggestion Nasturtium! I'm totally going to do that on my site (which is a "work in progress") Thanks for posting that link!

                        The site looks pretty good. Your retouching skills are great. I think all of the changes are simply things to the site itself, not your photography work.

                          I need to create a new website. Would any of you kind people be able to recommend a service or a template-style website creation service? Any that would have mouse-over or roll-over features? Price is a factor.

                          Many thanks,

                          Ken

                          Hi there,

                          I've had my website up and running for a while now, and have mostly got good feedback about it, but I have also heard of some great improvements for it. So I am going to throw a few more dollars at it to make some minor improvements. It is a bit bare as I haven't had the chance...

                          Hello Everyone

                          My website went live finally last week.
                          I would greatly appreciate it if when you have some time, that you could check it out and pass on some feedback.

                          It is a flash site and images are large, just to be forewarned.
                          One capability that is there...
