    My only one real comment is that I am not sure of the rotating images as your top banner. Given on your landing page you have adverts for some of the sites you have done recently I assume that webdesign is supposed to be your main revenue stream. Whilst the rotating pictures are great quality I found them rather distracting from actually looking at the site itself and really didnt say "webdesign" to me.

    Other than that it is a very well done site

    Have to agree with Astaroth. The quality of the photos used for the banner are good but does provide an unnecessary distraction to the end user. Looking at the work you've done for other clients it's hard to distinguish your site from those you have done. A site promoting a designer should shout out the designers capabilities as it is the main promotional tool a web designer has. Don't get me wrong it's a good site but it just doesnt seem to have that designer "feel" about it.

    Nice site.
    Photos in the gallery are a nice touch but I would look again grade them to remove 1 or 2. However they do span a lot of ideas.

    You still havent corrected the you to your::lease: (ASAP!)

    On Tonys comment regarding the designer "feel" I disagree with a bit.
    It does look like a designer web site to me but it also has to be identified as a web designers web site. In other words,the web-designer that you are has to take precedence over having a "designer web site" purely for reasons of income generation
    I also dont see why your site should look greatly different from clients sites since you designed both. Of course , one expects your site will be dynamic with stuff added and removed from time to time to improve it

    As such I do agree with Tony ( and Astaroth) that the flashy effects seem to distract from your previous portfolio since that is just as much your strength as is your current ability.Your previous work needs a tad more prominence (IMHO)

    Well done, On the whole ,the photography and whole concept are tops:thumbsup:

    Another correction:

    Stationery : what you would buy from stationers
    stationary : what a truck is when it's standing still

    All very valid comments guys! I appreciate them all!!

    I think its a bit of a subjective thing! The web design is only something I do as a hobby so its not my main source of income!
