    Sorry Scott, but I didn't get very far past the pink floral background...it overpowers your images, and the image quality wasn't displaying very well on my monitor either. So I didn't take much notice of the logo.

    I like the new logo, it is quite stylish. But the pink really doesn't do a thing for me either. However, you need to be asking clients, not us. Remember we will look at your site with the eyes of photographers, not clients, and clients are who you need to impress.

    Im afraid I agree with Lani, that background doesnt do you any favours. The logo itself is ok. Looks like it has a halo around on the splash page though. Also the full screen image on the landing page? Is that your best shot? Again I dont think its doing you any favours. Harsh I know but if I was looking for a photographer for my wedding you would lose me at that point. I dont think its flattering of the couple, in particular her. Of course this is just my opinion.

    Ditto on the comments about the pink background plus your logo looks quite pixelated on that page. When viewing images in the site itself, the logo has a white halo around it when seen against a dark background.

    I don't mean to be harsh but I have to say I don't really like the logo. It looks as though it was created in Word, rather than properly designed. Sorry if that's not the case, but it doesn't have a 'quality' feel to it. Just my opinion, I'm not a designer or anything.

    I like the logo, and as a someone very new to photography thought the photos look fine - would be happy to considered you as a photographer if I was getting married again. I did find the pink a bit much also (sorry), I think even if you just toned it down and made it more pale - as it did distract from your photos.

    Like the logo, very stylish.

    Not sure about the first page of the site. Maybe it's just me, but if I navigate to a web site and it presents me with a 'click here to enter' link, I feel a little annoyed. "I came all this way and you're gonna make me open the door to get in?"

    Much prefer the new logo, agree with comments re the pink, also I would probably change the first image, but then I didn't get to see many of your images, I have wireless broadband that operates quite slowly so basically I hate websites that have music and flash as it makes it excrutiatingly slow to load. If you are in the city it probably isn't an issue but in the country there are still heaps of people who cannot access internet at a fast speed.

    Your package pricing is confusion as it doesn't state if an album is included (I hope not at that price) or the price if it isn't, you have additional albums listed but not the first copy price. Many brides these days are opting for photobooks especially when hiring a less expensive photographer so that might be worth a thought.

    My 2 cents worth.....I agree about the pink. A lot of your images have that vintage tone that clashes with the pink. The pink up the sides changes to black in some.....needs to be consistent. The logo I don't mind.........
    I also hate flash and music and all that jazz.......I like things plain and simple but that is just a matter of taste and download speed.
    Have a look at your grammar......in some paragraphs you are speaking in the first person and then you swap to the third.
    Its all easy for me to say cause I got as far as you have with my own!
    cheers

    The Logo looks alright, but I would redo it in a program like illustrator. You definetly can see pixelation and halos.
    Photoshop is great and a whiz might be able to avoid lettering looking pixelated, but a graphic designer could redo that logo with illustrator in 5 minutes and have smooth edges. (thats what I did with mine, I was never happy with the results from text in photoshop)

    Scott the photos in the engagement portfolio, you have to put the vertical images in the middle of the page! You have a really nice sunset shot sitting under the text on the left. It just doest look good.

    Good morning all,

    i have made changes about the pink background, can someone please kindly see if this new "pink" is still bothering? if so, i will just change it to a black background (in flash version).
    i have added a html site to it as well.

    Hope to make more changes tonight to improve viewing.

    cheers,
    Scott

    while i know this is about the logo, i came across this:
    Scott is a Professional Photographer who specialised in engagement, wedding, portrait and events based in South Australia. He travels to regional areas.
    specialised is past tense. does he no longer specialise in these?

    also, look at the photos critically as they present

    ie

    http://www.scottgohphotography.com.au/html/?html=1&p=1

    is one of your main splash page but the quality of the photo is abysmal - maybe the way it's beinf resized etc

    Thanks Ving for the correction.
    kiwi, thanks, i will check that out. i have not much control over the html pages as this is part of the package website design that i purchased. Nevertheless, i will sure look into it.

    cheers,
    Scott

    scott, I don't see any pink so I gather you've got rid of it?
    as for the site, I'm not sure if the music adds much to it? also, I know nothing about legalities, licensing and copyright but if it's to be used on your website, don't you need to credit the artists or have some form of agreement with them to use it?
    A couple of typos as well - when describing your packages you state " you will received" which I'm sure you mean in the present tense rather than past?
