    My site has been somewhat up and running for a while. I think I am as ready as I can be, within the parameters of what I know how to do, what is possible and what I have time to accomplish. So, I am asking for reviews, comments, and critiques. Don’t worry about hurting my feelings, I am a programmer in my day job and I am used to being kicked around 🙂

    Hi Walt.

    Your slider images seems to be horizontally streched
    Search box and “select a category” is not very visible (you yould place the search over or after your slider and integrate categories in your menu)
    I don’t see a “Contact me” page.
    Your home page has not enough text and not h1/h2 tags.
    Your butterflies images are amazing 🙂

    Welcome, Walt!

    Without diving too deep into the site I’d have to say that the very first impression with that slideshow is not very appealing. The sunset image lacks interest and the butterfly and the cat seem to be horizontally stretched. I’d suggest to use your best work that actually fits into the slider.

    Also, I couldn’t find any indication of where you’re located or who you are. The lack of location makes that “Models Needed” page useless. And of course it’s building trust with potential buyers.

    Sorry, I’ve found that you’re actually mentioning where you’re located. My bad.

    Chrisroll and Andre,

    Thanks for the input. When I saw your comments about the slider I realized that my initial attempts to make those images fit the slider were not very appealing. I then realized that it would make more sense to fit the slider to my images. Should have seen that from the beginning. That part is now fixed. I agree with the other comments also and will fix those later today when I get time.

    I appreciate the feedback!

    Walt,

    Consider adding more text to your Home page by using widgets and your themes Home Page Layout Manager.  Add text that you want Google to pickup about you and your images.

    George
