Hi guys,
Once again i need your help.
I have just build a new website via SmugMug - www.vhphotography.smugmug.com (I am planning on buying my own domain - www.victorhoffmann.com )

What do you guys think?
What do you think about my prices?

Thank you,
Victor

Looks good Victor. I should point out that the title banner on top seems to be cut off on the right. I have a suggestion regarding the gallery names - it might make more sense to put more popular subjects like 'Landscapes', 'Architecture', etc. on top, followed by the city galleries. Otherwise, it's a clean, simple design and gets the job done. :)

I like the website Victor and some of your pictures are amazing. The prices are quite cheap in my opinion and I reckon you could sell them for more. :D

Thank you so much to both of you!

@Evolution,
What do you mean when you say the banner is cut of? I checked my photoshop file and there is about 55 pixels to the right and left (after the text is ending).
The galleries, i agree - I have been thinking of putting them under the category "Travel".

@James, I will have a look at my pricing again... 8)

Everything looks great now. But I would recommend you hurry and buy that domain because someone might snap it first and try and sell it to you for a lot more. Camera Labs is a nice place but you can't trust anyone on the internet.
