    Somehow it looks like a before and after ad for a skin clinic. I'm assuming you're trying to make it look dynamic with the different angle pictures, but it doesn't flow. Another thing, how many pics of you can you cram onto one page? It's a little narcissistic at best.

    I don't really like the layout at all to be honest... and the colours are a bit school-girly for my liking.

    I was expecting to see loads of bad code but fair play it's not too bad... I do spot a font tag though ! ... and a center tag, and the background colour defined in the body tag... I'm not trying to be harsh - just needs a bit of tidying up.

    IMHO The site is cluttered, 'ugly' from a design and layout standpoint, and I don't quite like the colour scheme.

    The 'random lines' you have seperating everything take away from the page.
    Also, if you are just plugging in images with a fixed height/width make sure to resize them or crop them outside of the site so they don't appear to be 'squished'.

    The colour scheme is too loud or 'bright'.
    If you are intent on using pink try to tone it down a bit.
    maybe contrast it with grey, or another dark colour.

    Having a full background coloured black is not 'wrong' in a sense, however I think your implementation isn't the greatest.

    maybe try in the css
    body {
    margin-top: 0;
    background-image: url('somecool/background/Image.jpg');
    }

    and make the background image like 4*4px and have like a little design you can use to 'fill' the background.

    the white inside the 'main document' doesn't work well because of all the other 'light' colours on the page.

    try making it an off grey or off tan colour and see how it looks.

    another thing to try:

    your menu,
    the crosshair cursor is used wrong here and I think will ultimatly confuse the user.

    It is not a good idea to use it like that.
    check out the menu on www.rlemon.com/new_sites/rlemon/

    that is done using JavaScript.
    you can see how it 'flares' up normal text based links.

    well thats all i can think of now (i've already closed your page :s)
    public string ConjunctionJunction(string words, string phrases, string clauses)
    {
    return (String)(words + phrases + clauses);
    }
    <--- Was I Helpfull? Let me know ---<

    Hey dude

    Yeah the pics are too big... take up far too much of the page. I appreciate that its just a fun site about you, but give the site room to breathe!

    I personally would agree with the previous comments about the pink... hey, pink rocks, but yeah tone it down... grey contrasts lovely with it. Dont look on a work/parental PC but www.suicidegirls.com (erotic/music site) has a great colour scheme in pinks and greys.

    Oh and I'd steer clear of referring to "fun" stuff, always sounds a bit "My First Webpage".

    Good luck with it!
