Basically, I don't bother critiquing peoples "websites" when they are just accounts on established web services.
It would be like me buying a new Audi and then asking everyone to critique its look and performance.
Or asking people to critique my facebook profile.
Have you considered looking at the unhappier moments, drawing out different emotions? Perhaps that is not your thing. I do both. I look for love of life, or everyday humdrum, or great sadness, always trying to tell the story.
I hope to see more of your work.
Same with wordpress templates. If someone else made it, you can't really ask people to critique it as your own work.
I'm guessing you're not, but if you are referring to the last website critique I requested, I hand coded the site and then designed and hand coded the WP skin to match
When I replace my other site later this week with a premade theme, I won't be asking for critique
Things like "Are there enough photos", "does it show a good range of photos" etc, that's fair enough.
But only customisable to a degree, after you've seen 20,000 wix or zenfolio sites, they all look the same and it's just something I get bored of looking at
Whilst I don't quite agree with Biomech, I would tend to agree that it would be a good idea to have a 'proper' self hosted site, as you fully own it, and are fully in charge of it - your site can't then put prices up, or change the way it disseminates your marketing efforts I'd advise to do this as soon as you can.
I think your logo is really nice, and your images seem to work together. Just watch out for text formatting in Firefox, OSX the text is not centred.
Hope that helps!
So why make a umbrella statement basically insulting the 20,000 Wix and Zenfolio users/customers?
Using a word press engine and pre-designed template is the same thing as using Zen or Wix but apparently editing the css or using an HTML editor makes it a hand coded in your head.
