    Ok a couple of points!

    * I think your logo is too big, There should be a gap between the bottom of the logo on the slider div you have. Maybe a 20-30px gap id say!

    * Dont name your pages with a .php as a title. E.g if you click on your about page, the header for the page reads about.php. People dont need to see this.

    * Dont use a free contact form, download a php script and make your own. (looks a bit more professional to your clients then).

    * On a personal note the design of your site looks a little old. Dont take any offense to that, its just most of the web development sites these days are all in HTML 5 and CSS 3 and look boss, whereass your design is a little bland. I would suggest going to http://tympanus.net/codrops/ they have a great design and great tutorials to get you inspired!

    Well done to get it this far and good luck with the site!

    keep practicing!

    Greg

    Thanks for the review! Much appreciated!
    I'm going to be, of course, making the contact form not lookg ugly table-based default crap; I just pasted that example code in there just to put something on the contact page.
    Also, I'm going for awesomeness on my h2 headers; you'll see what I mean in one of the upcoming versions of the site, probably version 0.6 or so. It's make it look much more modern and sexy!
    Yes I will space the logo a little more, thanks for the feedback!
    And we're working on a better background image for the area surrounding, which is right now a bunch of empty white space...:alien:

    A bit too text heavy. A few of the rotating banners also had text that was too small- hard to read.

    v0.5.6

    Easily the best one you've posted yet. A few notes:

    The font you used in the nav and header below the slider doesn't look bad in the nav, but it's too much in the header.

    If you're going to make the slider stand out from the page, you may want to add a slight drop shadow to the bottom.

    It looks a bit weird that the slider doesn't take up more of the green area. If you want to keep the size, center it vertically as well.

    I don't know if the slides are supposed to be final versions, but they're really jagged. And, why is IE the largest icon? It gives the appearance that you want it to be more prominent. If you wanted that, disregard.

    Code looks pretty good. good job on that.

    Thank you so much for the review!
    The slider is going to be positioned better, and there's going to be those little circles under the images that tell you which slide you're on and you click them to choose one... that's white the ribbon is so huge
    I'll consider changing the font of the under-slider header, I'm assuming you are referring to the one that says "high quality web design..."?
    Thanks again and I'll update once I've done it!

    I like the logo and font of the logo. Everything else is well... blank.
