Hi Bill,

Nice layout, very easy navigation, clever theme, fantastic photography!

Very minor suggestions:

•Remove the watermark from your main photo (index page). It's hard to read and is a different URL than your site and the photo links to a subset of your Gallery anyway--I don't get it. OK, I see the watermark on the enlargements elsewhere. Hmm. I understand your desire to protect your images, but it makes you look paranoid, perhaps.

•Maybe add text labels to each nav image on the main page telling the location (they all seem to direct to a different part of the Gallery).

•Correct the typos in your text headers on some pages (lack of spaces between words, missing characters).

•"I have not yet set up a link to Paypal." Get it set up before promoting your site ;-).

Hope that helps! LA is a long way from where you are, but some day I hope to visit. My ancestors were from Ireland.

That "graphitti" on your shots?

Just awful.

Clogher Head, for example.  A 589 x 400 pixel file.

If someone stole and printed it out at 240 ppi they could hang a whopping 2.45" x 1.67" print above their fireplace.

Is that something that you really need to protect  yourself against?

Or are you planning on going into the refrigerator magnet business?

Had a look through your website - I too use Clikpic.

As already mentioned I would definitely remove the watermark, it really doesn't help the images & provided you make sure they are below about 150k they are not really at risk - not as a print anyway.

Also to repeat others comments perhaps give some more location information & definitely setup the Paypal option - its a very popular & easy way to sell your photographs.

You have some great shots particularly in the Scotland gallery - I think perhaps one or two require a little PP-ing though, they seem a little flat, unless of course that is the intention & therefore ignore my comment.

One more tip - on this forum add your website address to your "signature"
