    Something not right...what could it be?

    Hi guys, i've spent sometime messing with the layout and style of the site, but for some reason the site content section looks very odd. Is it the colour scheme, i.e. grey white? or fonts? or something else? PLEASE ADVICE!

    thanks!

    i guess i can always change the image, but what i meant was that the the text in the content area (white and grey areas) looks out of place. I'm wondering what could be done to make it part of the page?

    I don't find very white and very yellow in header to be appealing, rather anoying, try make them more like white and yellow at other parts of page.

    plus try make bottom white background, gray, like one above, this should be better.

    check this site:

    doubt anything on your page fits in very well.

    actually your contrast analyser passed my yellows with greys/blacks:-

    Foreground:#FACD00 Background:#0D1200

    YELLOW/BLACK:

    Passed at Level 3 (The contrast ratio is: 13.28)

    Foreground:#FACD00 Background:#2E2D2A


    YELLOW/DARK GREY
    Passed at Level 2 (The contrast ratio is: 9.66)

    Its just the content area i'm having problems with and after messing around, i found out what looked odd. I had the bullet points in the grey background and the normal text in the white background.

    Now my question is that even though its looking much better, the text looks a bit boring, so would u say that i should add some pictures within the white blockquote to make it a bit more jazzed up or leave it?

    Also what could i do to the bullet points to make them stand out more?
