All right, as promised, I have pretty much completed the update of my web site. It's about a week's worth of work, including processing the images, making the thumbnails, and doing the HTML for the site. (which is a real pain when you look at the back & forward buttons and the shopping cart buttons that all have to be changed for each image.)

I decided that the best way for me to share the links would be to put a list of them on the main page for the site, that way when you view the new galleries you will still have the navigation bar on the left side. I'm still working on a way to direct link to a gallery and have it remain in it's parent frameset, but I'm not having any luck yet.

Anyhoo, just hit the link and have a look around. And of course enjoy.

Also, if you spot any tyops or other errors, please let me know so I can fix 'em.

Mike,

I took a quick peek.....supper is almost ready so I don't have much time, but I really enjoyed what I saw. I especially like the shot of Fourteen Mile Point's lantern with the moon off to the side.

I'll stop in to see the rest.

Thanks for the updates!
Stephen

Mike, I will also glance around - and if you don't mind my being a nit-pick on English, your sentence on your opening page of "All of these photos were taken by me using the Nikon N90 and F5 35mm and D70 digital camera systems with Nikon and Tamron lenses, a Manfrotto/Bogen tripod system, Singh-Ray, Hoya and Tiffen filters, and Fuji Velvia and Provia professional slide films." is way too long. I had to read it three times to make sense of the camera body portion. Might I suggest perhaps a separate page of equipment used, and then you can detail your bodies, lenses, film, and tripod? Check this out - I thought it was nicely organized.

Not a bad idea Jen, I was thinking about shortening the front page anyway after some other feedback I received. I'll see what I can do.

Very nice, Mike! I have to say, your section on 'Ships' is extremely
addictive... :lol:. I have only begun the 'tour' and will probably take
my time, over the next few days, to check out the rest of it.

Job well done!

Very, very nice job, Mike, with some absolutely stunning photography.

One request, from a guy with aging eyes: Would you consider another color for the updated galleries list, once the pages are visited? They now change to a color that virtually disappears, at least for me, into the background, and that makes revisiting a bit difficult.

Great ship shots, by the way.

Consider it done Mike, a good suggestion. And I'm glad you liked the site.

Ok, done! That was quick. I changed it to a light blue that I think stands out nicely. You may have to refresh the page before the change takes affect. If you have any more advice, please let me know.
