Hello Shippo

Nice website, it looks decent on my Mac using Firefox. I really like your pictures, especially the one that appears to be a runner looking at the side (great DoF). One thing I don't like is the music that automatically start when visiting the website. Personally I don't like websites with this because most times I have my speakers high and when the website music starts it usually scares me. If I don't find how to turn the music off I immediately get out of the website, but that just me. Good job, keep it up.

Thanks ofr the feedback :)

But i kinda think that websites that have no audio are somewhat boring and dull. But did you find the player's control? They are located on the top right corner :)

Hey Shippocaio, I'm with SargeHero 100% on the music thing. I'm going to your website to look at photos and video, not listen to music, right? I might have my own music playing on my computer. Sometimes music on websites actually scares me. I'm not interested in hearing what the web designer thinks I should be listening to. I know not everyone is like this, but quite a few are. Auto-play music on a website is a deal breaker for me. I immediately navigate away, never to return. My 2 cents.

Thanks Kenzol. So should i just turn the auto-play off and let people decide if they want to play the music or not??

BTW, the profile picture thing is mostly forteenagers. Since most of my friends were willing to pay me to make a pp for them, i thought i could turn that into a service lol

I think I like best your artistic phtography, but I don't like the fact that once the film strip gets in motion, you can't stop by hovering over it with your cursor.

The music you can give an cross (on/off) button, for muting.
