Nice clean site you have there. Lots of beautiful and thoughtful images. Inspiring. Makes me want to go on a photo shoot right now.... oh wait, it is 11pm! rats.

Thanks for sharing. I can't wait to see the full launch of your site.

Your images never fail to amaze me...Great shooting, and great site!

What are you using for the backdrop in the lemon pictures?

What black backdrop did you use for the zen rock photos?? They're great.

@Glenn: He's using white paper for the lemon photos.

VERY nice!!! Hey, after you posted those images of lemons the other day that inspired me to do some tabletop photography again, and I've been having a lot of fun with it.

Your website is very, very nice and the background sets off the images perfectly. Good work!

Nice stuff.

I really like Sunrise (in the snow).

One suggestion: put links the other pages at the bottom of each page. Makes for easier navigation. No need to scroll back to the top of the page.


What is your camera of choice? (I'm sure if I looked I would find it somewhere, but I've got to drive across town...)

Nice images, you make it look easy to do still lifes.
Nicely laid out site too.

Very nice indeed. I prefer the outdoor to the indoor, but great in general.

While I agree that the photography is quite beautiful.. the navigation of the page is quite annoying. I'd suggest a better technique.. and avoid the "page 1" "page 2" "page 3" links... your images deserve more.

and still no place to buy prints...;)

I like your new site ( I really liked the old site too )

As usual, your photography is outstanding. :)

your website is pretty nice, honestly though I wasn't overwhelmed by your photos. they are very good, but I'm not ready to buy any prints of any of them. loved the M.C. Escher-esk stairwell photo though, great stuff. :cool:

these images are really good!

ive taken a few macro shots of still life that i would like to put up, ive done some post production on them.

does anybody know of any proffessional photography websites featuring minimalist objects on white backgrounds or black backgrounds, that let you use images as wallpaper?

ive scoured the internet and can find many easily.

ive noticed a general trend on the monthly desktops thread that many people have really nice, minimalist, macro images.

Great shots! I love all the shots that feature a silhouette. :)

Also, just to let you know, when you are on page1indoor.html or page2indoor.html, the link for page 2 goes to your index. And the link to outdoor page 2 might be spelled funky. :p

The site is nice and simple. Pretty easy to get around. Well done! :)

The font you used for 1, 2, and 3 is the most annoying thing ever. They don't even go with the rest of your site, like the other text, for example.

Look at the links...they should be fixed (least when I looked at the problem it wasnt there anymore)...refresh and tell me if problem still persists

I'll get on fixing that sometime in next day or two when I get some time freed up

On my PC, Internet Explorer 6.0, the front page's main links are outlined in blue border.

Nice changes!

Noted!

Hope to have that cleaned up sometime today (check tomorrow)

- Fix Font
- Fix Home Button
- Fix Blue thing around links
- Fix PNG's for reflection, i noted they give a gray background on different browsers, so ill change their backgrounds to black

Thank you

I really liked the images, especially the outdoor shots. One nitpicky thing I might change is the location of the lemon slice photos on page 1 and page 2. When flipping to page 2, I thought I was looking at the same image until I flipped back and saw that the composition and lighting was different. It was distracting for me.

I really like the photo of the ring, casting the heart-shaped shadow.
The site is nice, but navigation is not as intuitive as possible. I look forward to seeing how it comes along. Best of luck.

Oh, that means 1, 2, 3... I thought it was I S E or something like that ;-)
Apart from that, I really like the photos.. what equipment do you use?

FYI:: 'Page 2 Outdoor: Brush stroke' is the wrong image.

Great photos. Simple, yet elegant site. I like it. :)

Really nice site -- beautiful images, beautifully displayed.... I love the way you tilted a couple and did the reflections thing. I haven't tried messing with that yet. I did finally start up an experimental site in iWeb just to see how easy/difficult it might be. I am definitely a novice at this sort of thing, the exact sort of consumer that Apple was targeting with iWeb, but even so I felt a little frustrated with the templates and not being able to do things exactly the way *I* wanted.
