    This isn't the actual site obviously but a church pastor asked me to make his youth page. I need a little bit of experience so I'm doing it for free. How does it look? Graphics ok? Not the greatest scripting when it comes to advanced php but you should see the main site, it's so embarassing I wont even show it. Anyway, I can do a lot with graphics but as you can see it's pretty simple. Should I add something?

    I don't know if black is the best color choice for a youth website. With that being said, the black background with white text combo is very hard to read. I'd change the text to a very light gray to break up the contrast. Then I'd make the left menu text a different color altogether so it stands out. I also think the logo and headings need to be different colors (maybe make the headings #33CC00).

    Green? Why change the color to green, is this a personal preference or actual advice? Green is my favorite color but most people don't like green on websites.

    I personally love green, but I chose it because it's a bright color that goes with the orange and blue you're using. I think almost any bright color will work really.

    Gree does go with blue and orange. I wouldn't know where to put it though. I like the blue headers and I'm going to change the banner to have a little bit more to it. I'll being making the whole layout more graphical this weekend.

    Like Kitty said, black is nice but too dominant for a church site IMO.

    Have a look at some of theses church sites showcases on cssmania

    I think that black could work, once you have big chunks of content, and pictures in there. My only concern is since the whole thing is black, using white text will start to annoy some people after a while.
