    I believe this is the 3rd version I have posted. I think after every critique it becomes a much stronger site. I really want to create a really well designed site as well as an easy to navigate one. I'm looking for any suggestions that will help my site stand out from other related sites. Since I have a lot of time this summer I really want to strive for a professional look. The site is the same one as in my signature but I will put a link here too. Pet Growth

    The site structure and navigation are excellent IMO.
    The weakest aspect is the page header graphic; it's just not commensurate with the quality of the rest of the site.
    The cat growth photo frame is also a bit weak.
    I'd recommend simplifying these elements and refer back to the gradients used in the rest of the interface.

    Also, the navbar drop shadow is cut-off a bit on the right side.

    Nice site.

    only thing i see is to make the text in the navigation bar different or bigger, something about it i personally dont like. but other than that great :D

    It looks good. The only things I would change is the border around the header image, it looks rather odd. And then the navbar, it could be just a bit bigger and the text on the un-selected navbar could be a different color- it is a little bit hard to read.

    But good work imporoving the site over all.

    I think it looks pretty nice also.

    One thing that I noticed is, generally considering what is in your website, I don't see any reason why it cannot dynamically size to window width, instead of making me scroll horizontally....
