Default Rate my site (my pictures)

Hi friends,
I just bought my Canon G3 two months ago and took a hundred pictures.
Now i have my own personal site dedicated to photography.
I'm an amateur, but I do love photography!

So, i need you to go there and, if possible, rate it for me.
Send me a mail or just post a message
i'll be glad

Please, be my guest

First thing I noticed is there's no obvious place to click to move on...I had to move my mouse over the page to figure out what to click on to move on...I expected to have to click on the word "Photography", not the camera.

Second, you should have a disclaimer saying that those images and logos on the front page are copyright Canon...you probably should ask permission to use them too or else you can be sued.

Third, if you use the same image of the camera and the word "photography", use the same file from the same directory...having to reload it from another directory slows the site down. My own site (about PDAs) has over 30 pages, but the image files for the logos used on each page are the same files, so they only have to be downloaded and cached once.

Fourth, the page is too long, too much scrolling down...personally I would like to see something like Pbase uses, each category listed and a sample picture from each...if I want to see the rest of the category I can then click the sample. And again you may want to make the words hotlinked as well.

These may sound like critisisms, but they're not; they're meant to be positive to improve the site...I learned a lot from a book called, "Web Pages That S u c k, learning good design by looking at bad design" (yes that's the name of the book)...I use that philosphy now when looking at others websites and designing my own.

Btw, the pictures are nice!

it doesnt really matter what camera you use,
its the quality/uniqueness of the photograph

Let me tell you something, with my old HP 612 (I loved that camera) I just couldn't get a nice picture except with bright sun light.

About my site design and organics, ok, it is strange and simple, but I just want to put my pictures online. My work is not web design or photography, so I don't have enough time to do it just the way I want. I try do to my best.

About the logos in the pictures, YES, you're right, they are too big.
But I think I want them just like that.

Finaly, I apologise Canon for having it's logo and camera picture in my site. It's the way i found to thank Canon.

What I want? I want a photographer to tell me what's wrong and right in my pictures. I know some subjects in my pictures are not off center, and they should. It's wrong, but I ain't got so much pictures like that.

Send me a mail if you want.
Best regards

Pedro, I really enjoyed ALL your pictures. I shoot plants and flowers for my CD and my only suggestion would be to try reducing your aperture, especially when shooting very red flowers. I've had better results doing so. I also have better results on cloudy days. I use a G2.

I'd be interested in knowing which settings you used and which mode (P, AV etc.)

Hi JaneKP.
Thanks for your message and for the tips
there's really something missing in my flowers close-up's

when my subject is a flower:
most of the time I use P , sometimes i try to get a little bit more depth-of-field, and use the AV and choose a bigger f-stop.
but if you want the full EXif of my photos tell me your e-mail and I'll send you.
Bye and thank's again

Best regards
