    Hi Guys

    I've built my site on a theme by Blog Oh Blog called Black and White. As a photographer I wanted the images to be the dominate feature of the site and I liked the simple layout of Black and White to achieve this. I have a few more ideas I want to implement but basically I think I'm getting where I want to be with the site.
    Would appreciate you guys kicking things around and letting me know anything obvious I've overlooked in the functionality of the site.

    Thanks
    Andrew

    Andrew very professional and the advertising isn't in your face. Liked your random banner at the top which achieved exactly what you are after, highlighting the photography. Must see if we can get something like that running, which would be cool and will save on arguements over which movie still to use (up coming horror site for home grown Aussie and Kiwi horror outings).

    I don't like the whole black on white thing, but then what to do with a kiwi site besides a tad of silver colouring I guess.

    Hey thanks for that.
    Wonder if anyone has ideas on blending some subtle colour if black and white is a bit harsh. I don't mind the B & W but of course am pretty blinded by a couple of months of site development.
    Thanks.

    Andrew,

    Spent a bit of time hunting around the rugby sites to see if anyone is doing anything with black and white. Seems it's a "throw your hands in the air like you just don't care" thing going down. My Wife, unfort an Aussie, is a web designer and she thinks something could be done with the fern in a sort of burnished metal look but shakes her head over any use of black :(

    Have had a chance to check out some other blogs, not my normal thing, and seems black and white is used pretty widely for no apparent reason. Can understand kiwis using it.

    Your photography is beautiful and the site is easy to read and navigate, but I wonder if you might consider a more creative or decorative font for your name and subheading at the top. I think the current one is a bit simple and something more decorative would go well with such a lovely site, IMHO.

    Thanks for input Guys.
    I've made a few tweaks along the way, slowly getting there I think.
    I shudder when I remember what things were like before WordPress!
    Thanks
