Bill, at least on my monitor, the images would look better if they were a bit contrastier. I tried punching them up 25 percent, and that seemed good. Your larger images, against the white background, suffer the most. I suggest you try a darker background too. chris

Bill, I would have to agree with the previous comment about contrast. A little more contrast would make all the difference in the world. Also, to be able to navigate from large image to large image without going back to the thumbs would be nice.

On the positive side, I really liked your work. Street photography seems to be a special skill (and one that I don't have.) Do you ever have any awkward situations arise? Also, I like the size of your large images because they load quickly. Quick loading is essential if you want people to look at your images and I think this is especially true in showing street photography.

Bill, The 1012 & 1047 jpgs are awesome! For some reason, all information and images are concentrated in the top left corner while the rest is empty. I would recommend changing it if this is the original design. Cheers, Alexei

PS If have a minute check my "baby" on

After 22 years and you are still taking photos like these ? It's time for some photography lessons my friend. Don't quite your day job.
