    I've just finished a new design for http://www.shadowmelody.com.
    Could people give me their opinions?

    Thanks

    The header itself is quite nice, I think the images you have chosen also work well, but the lower background with the horizontal lines doesnt work so well... Also, the word "shadowmelody" in small letters in the header kind of ruins the header a bit... While the navigation could be a bit more user-friendly (eg: you dont know what you are going to until you move your mouse over the image), i quite like it...

    In short, if you remove the word (or change in someway) "shadowmelody" from the header, its great, but below the header it kind of loses it a bit.

    It's intended to be purly stylised, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered with generating a random header image. I do agree with the fact that it doesn't look so great from the header downwards, thank you for the advice. (I personally like the "Shadowmelody" above the navigation. Don't think anyone else does...)

    The reason I dont like the shadowmelody bit, is becuase the furthest left image is mostly black to the left, which makes it looks like there is padding missing from the text. When I hover over the image and it becomes lighter, I quite like the look of it. If you had an image with slightly less black to the left then I think It would look slightly better... But really, this is just nitpicking now.
