    I'm working on making a website using Photoshop and iWeb.

    How does this look so far?

    I'm just in high school, and this website is to show my photography/architecture to people.

    I used some paper gradients layered on top of each other along with a green gradient for the grass effect, and the "text" is my handwriting. The house is something that I rendered. (I'm going to study architecture next year)

    I think that the house look too green-tinted.

    Ya, it is. I did that so it would "blend in" more with the grass. Otherwise it stands out way too much.

    I don't like how the house has 2 entrances at the front. More than 1 is passe.

    There is only one entrance, it might just be hard to see. The entrance is under the porch on the left into the rotunda.

    I think that it would stand out in a good way. And get rid of that grass unless you want to use it through the whole page. It looks out of place.

    Okay... you like green. I can dig it.

    Don't dig the grass textured background though.

    I'd go for something with more contrast... less texture.

    Ok, I think that's a good call to make.

    Do you mean the browser background? The browser background is a light grey FYI.

    No, I mean the horizontal bars with grass texture, like the one behind "MY NAME IS HERE".

    Ok, I agree. :) I removed the grass, and it does look much better now.

    It looks like there's a door on the left side, right of the column by the palm tree.

    whole pic should not be greenish. It feels like that it captures by the camera with green lens. I think just green background would be a better idea.
