You all need bigger monitor resolutions. I don't have a widescreen and it looks great. Nice pictures.

Some of us can't change our montitor resolutions for projection reasons. But like that article I cited in putting photo's on a website you want to acommodate everyone, even those with lower resolutions.

I've seen those stats...

I am running an 800X600 because I have to run a feed off of the puter to an lcd projector running a 15' X 15' rear screen projector, and have also to run my feed down to a studio to feed live streaming, when I'm not surfing the web that is.

But the funny thing is Clayton I don't have this issue on any other photblog or website I look at and I look at a lot of them. So they are doing something different than the other websites.....because this hasn't been an issue before today. And that's why I pointed it out to him.

Yea but if you make the pictures small to accommodate even the smallest of resolutions, then that takes away from the quality of the pictures. If I'm looking at photography I want the pictures to be big, not small. I don't think any web designers cater to resolutions smaller than 1024x768 anymore. Yea plenty of websites are fine below that, but they don't build it around resolutions smaller than that.

Ok, this is the first time i have read this and I completly agree with revvy. Not to give you guys a hard time but mearly as a suggestion. I do both web design and photography on the side so I really do know what I am talking about when it comes to this. Bottom line is that yes, some (maybe most) people have higher resolution but you still need to cater to the ones that do not. All sites should be based on a 800*600 resoltution. What you might want to conisder is actually having two versions one high and one low rez. It would be easy enough to do it like that.

Also, from a photographers standpoint I would love to see some technical info. Pretty much camera and lens used, the exposure settings, and any lighting that was used.

I do really like quite a few of the pictures on the site though.

While I appreciate the feedback, it's not my site, and SWMBO doesn't listen to me or read these forums...

So, yeah. I just wanted to post that pic 'cause I think it's awesome.
Also, you cannot say the past-tense word for shoot as it gets blocked by the profanity filter.
