Post your website/photo blog/photo hosting site

I'm building my website and need some inspiration, both in photography and website design. I can never settle what to do with my website...maybe that's my problem, there's no *focus* for a website...Well here's my website as of now:

Limited Star Photography

I did a search and didn't find any post similar to this. If there's one point me to it; I can never use the search function to find what I'm looking for in this forum.

cool website and photography. I figured it wouldn't hurt anything and at the same time would drive traffic to your site. I make my website from basic HTML, CSS, and PHP with integrated wordpress as my blog engine. I need more work on my website...

You should really look into just buying a template, there are some really good ones out there for cheap.

Here is a great example: WordPress Themes, HTML Templates - ThemeForest the templates are awesome and most are like $20.

Here is one of the templates that they have WordPress PhotoBlog

Mine is quite simple, yet the viewer feedback indicates it's the right thing to do. I intentionally did it this way to ensure the focus (pardon the pun) is on the images, not the website. While my primary subject matter is wildlife and nature images, there are industrial, historical reenactment and people images as well. Yours is definitely simple and clean!

Great website Marc!!! Wow, so many amazing photos.

NYphotog-thanks for the theme suggestion, those look great but I don't want to pay for them And I want to customize them to my wants; don't want to have to recode what I payed for hehe...

I have recently started a blog...only a couple entries so far I just finished a time-line-style summary of the viral marketing of the K-7. Not 100% comprehensive, but nice if you don't want to wade through the Mega Thread Not too thick on specs yet...later

Jeff-great collections of images of your children and flowers...so beautiful...

Johnny-great looking site and blog, on your main site the "Portfolio" seem to not be working...looking forward to the completion of your site.

I did some work today on my site, pretty much how I wanted it to be for now. I'll try to update the blog regularly.
