I think it is a very good first effort; I would suggest, just having had a very quick look, that you use the same font style/size for each page for the sake of consistency.

Thanks mco, i will do that....i keep forgetting what font size ive used on the previous page. Is there anything i can set to auto do this for me or does it have to be done manually for each page?

I think (I'm working from memory here!) if you made a Master Page (upon which you base your other pages) then you can set the default font there and it will be applied to any other pages. I don't know how you set your site up though

I have sorted that problem out now and it does look much better, I think!!

It looks very good though there are a few stray bits. (liked the 3 by 3 puzzle btw). May I suggest, if you haven't done this, you test with different browsers, and also change the screen dimensions, just to make sure there isn't some oddity.

I just had a look at your site in Opera, Firefox and Netscape Navigator and it looks fine in all, except that Netscape asked me for a plugin to view the gallery. I used this click here
to view it in different sizes and it looks ok at least in 800x600 which a fair few people still have.

thats what it is in at the moment, so I take it I should leave it as it is?

It probably won't be long before you start to receive the usual deluge of spam through those email links, even with your pagerank, so you might want to minimise trash by using a PHP-driven form. In fact, you really should.

I would expect a site that is intended to promote artistic media to be more sleek and polished, but I can appreciate that this is your first effort. You might benefit from moving on from Serif once you get a bit more knowledge. Take a look at sites such as click here for some inspiration.

Some copy-editing is required; go through your text with a fine-toothed comb and pick out the typing and punctuation errors. Change your page titles (not the file names, but the titles that browsers display). For example, "Home" would be better replaced with something like "Ant Jackson Images: Sports Photography".
