Ahhhh, I'm tired....

Well, I spent most of last night making my website pretty by finally sitting down and using my college degree in graphic arts to make a 20 minute banner that went through like a million revisions.

The current version is up on my site at Photography 2.0 - Uconventional - Unrestriced - Unreal- powered by SmugMug so take a look at how it looks there and let me know how everything works and click around to make sure my links aren't broken if you don't mind. I thank everyone for helping me out as I'm getting really bad at making sure this stuff works as my coding sucks compared to what my skill at it should be.

here are some other banners I made and let me know if these styles work any better in your opinion or should I stick with what I have up now.

Old banner to reference from:

First new revision:

Second new revision:

Third new revision:

Fourth new revision:

Fifth and final revision I made:

Small ad to put on other peoples websites using html code:

If you want to add my mini banner to your website here is the code:
<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" width="200" height="100" border="0"></a>

i'm going to blunt

this is NOT original

and i have seen your photorgaphic work so i'm a bit puzzled

OTOH, a website is supposed to be to the point and easy to navigate, so maybe its asking too much.

i do like the white text with red numbering, but i would probably make the menu selections also a shade of white.

have you tried making the 2.0 bigger than the text?
It's cool.

I wish I could make it more original, but it's run off smugmug so there is only so much work that I can do. My coding sucks and the only thing I can do to separate myself from the rest of the smugmug users is cool content. I now have a forum, but only for question and answers about my site and work lol.

If only I knew how to edit my menu bars I would. I know how to add to my navbar, but changing the characteristics is another story. I'll most likely sit down with that next weekend, but for now I'm adding more content.

I did, but the reflection didn't work. The banner name was made simple so I can use it on multiple platforms including letterheads and signs to hang up at bars etc.
