    That's a lot of green. My first suggestion is for you to use more colors. The link in my signature is a good tool to find colors that work well together.

    Also, the banner is very boring. Try to add some graphical elements to spruce up the design, starting with the banner.

    To be honest with you, the colours look very tacky. Although it is very green, it still is better then with the blue.

    Try and pick some better colours again and show us another example.

    The design isn't at all bad, but the colours are. Maybe try coming completly away from the whole green thing and try some completly different colours.

    Hope this helps,
    Daniel.

    I went to the color schemer website and they said that those colours went well together. But I will try some different things and post them here.

    Let me tell you my opinion:
    Photoshop is GREAT for making graphics and super advanced images (like 2advanced.com...), but for making web graphics with rollovers,etc I strongly recommend you Fireworks. If you have the money get it. Normally the older versions can be found cheaper.
    In any way- try to differentiate the head of each section of the navbar by something other than the size of the font.
    Other thing: I've seen that the edges of the text in content area are anti-aliased, that means that you are going to post the site with the text in a image. (maybe I'm wrong) I recommend you to put text as text, so user can copy and paste, select, etc.
    Maybe I sound harsh, sorry. But I only want to help.

    The colors may work well together, but you still have to use them properly.

    Also, I'd try to stick to one font and only two, maximum of three different weights (bold, italic, etc) of that font. You have fonts in a lot of different sizes and weights here. That's distracting IMO.
