Hi All,
I finally finished the redesign of my new site and it is up and live.
www.troyerimages.com
I would love to get some constructive feed back from anyone who would take the time. Good and Bad!
Thanks in advance.
David

You've got some really great work Smile Congrats on the site launch -- how long have you been shooting?

My first, gut reactions:

Some of your images have some weird resizing artifacts going on on my screen -- especially in the portraits section. Hair on some of the shots shows serious stair-stepping; skin textures have weird, shimmering speckles. Not sure if this is a problem related specifically to my monitor res (I'm on a 1280x1024 laptop), or your site's Flash gallery management, but it's worth looking into.

I think you could overall use a stronger edit -- you have a lot of images up here, plenty of them strong, but a stronger edit with fewer of them would lend to a greater impact overall.

Not sure on the naming of your sections? "Portraits" often look to me like commercial lifestyle work. If it were me... I guess I'd put lifestyle, then portrait, then studio as my sections, in that order. Depends on who you're marketing to, I guess, but I think your naturalistic lifestyle stuff is your strongest work -- I'd put my strongest work up front.

Good luck with everything Very Happy

Really loved the wave shots. Don't know if I've ever seen better shots inside a wave. I agree with jlafferty though- you could do with a tighter edit. Maybe take out 1/3 to half of everything for a really nice set of pix. Loved the opening baby headshot too.

I didn't notice any problems with artifacts here.

Best of luck.

Looks nice and clean. Resizes well. Tried it on my BlackBerry and the images come up fine. Well done.
