When I come to the first page it is not apparent what it is you do. There is no information, no direction, just your title and the list of links. I realize your title has 'foto' in it. But some visitors are real dummies, not just pretending to be a dummy.

The first link at the top is "Principal" so I click on it and nothing comes up. I suppose you are filling in that information later...

When I click on the other links (which turn out to be photos), the photo does not pop up centrally but below all of the links. This is wasted space. I suspect there is a problem with the orientation of your links. On my screen (Firefox) they appear top to bottom and the content appears below them. Perhaps it is meant to be left to right at the top and the photos appear centrally?

Your layout is very sparse. I suppose you want to highlight the photos. But initially, there is nothing attractive to make me want to go further unless I happened to click one of the links to the left. I advise you to start with a photograph since then it would be apparent what it is you do.

Not obvious what to do or what happens after you do it.

Bit of an update. Trying to make some kind of thumbnails for the images. The images will always appear at the bottom of the page, not planning to change that.

I think you should be planning to change it.

Your site is a real pain to use unless the viewer has a very large, probably portrait-orientated, monitor. Using my MacBook Pro (with a vertical resolution of 900 pixels, so not particularly small), I just gave up: it's too much hassle to scroll down to view a photo and then scroll back up to pick the next one. Why should anyone bother? Your photos are a pleasure to look at, but not that much of a pleasure.

Sorry to be blunt.

Hi,

I have to agree that the layout is not going to encourage people to browse all your images. It looks like you want to have all the links to your photo's on the same page as the image that is selected but, the more images you add, the worse it is going to be for navigation.  If you are always only going to have a select few images available for viewing, then maybe you should have the image links running horizontally rather than vertically ie like a table, that way, you should be able to browse the images without having to scroll back up to the image links.

I would also strongly suggest having some sort of left/right arrows below the image to use for simplicity.



Cheers John
