    Nice website Chris and pictures are good.
    What hardware are you using? I've been using Nikon for a few years now and my D80 could do with being replaced some time soon.

    That said, I've fallen into the trap of getting a Canon Ixus 100is for when a dSLR is not condusive to the situation ;)

    Thanks for looking and your kind comments, I have a Canon EOS 50D with a 17-85 IS USM and a 70-300 IS USM lens, also got a Tamron 55-200 telephoto.

    I also use an Ixus 90IS, its perfect for when an SLR is not practicable.

    Looks good? What you using to build the site. Pics are good too. If I may comment, the pic with the sea in the back grpund... level the horizon if you can without unsettling the girl on the steps!

    Also, I'm a big fan of B&W so love the B&W pics but some look a tad grey.... have you tried boosting levels, dodge & burn, curves, etc to give a bit more depth and power to B&W.

    Don't take this as criticism as such, as I do like you're phots, just a few ideas!

    If its Ok with you I'd like to tweak the B&W tree shot...

    :)

    What res is the site built on Chris cause scroll bar is cardinal sin for left to right tbh, I'm running 1280x800 & has bar, I dont remember it being like this when I viewed same site short while ago.

    I would try & have photos take up a standard screen size of say 1024x768 & then have options for view whole image.

    Is this run of a host account as I find images load little slow, maybe lower size etc to run bit quicker with again options to see full size.

    I remember when I looked at this while back it was looking good, can only go one way mate.

    How much does your scroll bar allow you to scroll horizontally, I get about 1-2mm

    Well your res must be higher than 1280x800 cause mine has a scroll bar at bottom of 70mm or so.

    I dont know what site builder you use but should have a browser test for different res levels so can see what looks like, default used to be 1024x768 tbh & centered site so comes up ok in larger res screens, these left aligned sites look awful, excluding your atm as its in design stage no, but some major billion dollar companies have ***** sites, HP is one, front page has changed in last few months but next pages are so well dated in design structure its hardwork tbh, famous one for page after page before finding what you want is Intel, god its unreal how many pages you click to get your download of drivers & there newer work, play **** idea is stupid.
