    In terms of gallery usability, it's excellent. I like ZENphoto a great deal, loved the slideshow and overall layout and structural design. Well done, bravo, as to the gallery itself.

    A couple of what I admit are personal minor gripes on the rest:

    • Add some margin between search button and top of gallery box.
    • Remove the bottom gray graphic below the footer nav - makes it look like content should be there that is missing. Use the background image behind the top and middle for the entire page.
    • Move the footer nav to the top as header nav
    • The light green for each frame in the gallery is a little too light, not enough contrast due to the transparent div beneath it. It becomes an issue when it becomes a bit tough to read.
    • On the "instagrammy" interior page and others put home icon at the top in the left sidebar menu nav
    • Keep the masthead site name color consistent from page to page
    • It's a design choice to change to a light gray border around the gallery box for inner pages, but this is technically inconsistent site design. Might consider keeping same color/styles throughout to bind all pages into one clean site template. But I understand if not.
