Hello

Hello everyone, I found this site by accident today. It looked very interesting so here I am, a new member. I have an EOS 300D which I got just over a year ago, so I am still a novice.
Some of the pics I have taken are on my web site at www.colinspics.co.uk.
Please have a look.

P.s I don't think your web gallery does justice to your shots though


(that's what we call a sideways compliment round here!)

welcome Weeman, some lovely pictures in your gallery, as ghandi says, it doesnt do your quality pictures justice, you need to present them better!

Greetings!

After the above I had to go look at your site. Nothing wrong with the pictures - navigation is off putting though.

RE: web gallery

Sorry you don't like my site, I am a beginner at web sites too and open to any suggestions on how to improve it.

Picture frames! Just a plain white border will make a massive difference to your images.

Have a look at some applications like Simpleviewer, Coppermine, Gallery(as used in the members galleries) and others, post in the photo chit chat section and see what others suggest

Hello Weeman!

Some great pics in your gallery there.

I like the one of the Falkirk Wheel...used to pass it regularly when I fixed all the copiers for Falkirk Council

The rest of you beware...we are painting our faces blue and white (even though I'm a Sasenach :lol: )

PS: Well captured on the bike crash

Hey just to repeat others love some of your photos.

About the site my personal opinion would be
1) lose the animated Colin's Pics gif. I find repetive animation on websites almost as anoying as music you can't turn off
2) change the colour of the fonts on "main_page.htm" light grey on white is doesn't stand out enough I'm not saying use candyfloss pink just a darker grey will do.
3) I'd have links on each of your sections eg animals, action etc to the other sections so ppl don't have to go back to the main page to change sections
4) you either need have it open each photo in a new window relativlely simple java script or put some navigation links on each photo page. Its not good to rely on the viewer using the back button on their browser
5) I'd combine main page and index into one page there is no real need to have two its just another page for someone to load

Those are just my thoughts I'm not a web designer or anything so feel completely at ease disagreeing with and or ignoring everything I've said
