    Hey, mate... Nice work on the changes! I especially like the idea of putting up the testimonial right below the work on the Portfolio page. Nice touch!

    I'm in the process of making a different version of the site...an entirely different look. Should have it done in a a couple of days...then I can upload it to see which one you guys prefer. Would love some feedback.

    I'll keep you posted!

    Hi Ben - I think your site is looking great. It spells out who you are, what you have done - and what you can do for people.

    The only thing I'm not a big fan of are your colour combinations, but that is a personal thing. So I look forward to seeing your next version.

    And you live in a great part of the world. :) I'm ex Noosa / Sunrise Beach.

    I would suggest looking very closely at how your competitors (successful ones) present themself - Just copy 'em.

    Where's the fun in that? I didn't start this thing just to make money... Not much creativity in just copying someone's page.

    I do look very closely at competitors though and take parts of it I found user-friendly and integrate into my own design. But one thing I notice is a lot of them are doing the same ol' design and have obviously just copied each other - a bit boring really.

    I've had a few customers comment on my site saying that they liked the original look of it, and that that's why they went with me - so that's great. With the new design I'm trying to keep that bit of wow factor, but also take into consideration the other comments of maybe it doesn't look as 'professional' as it could - so hopefully I can create a nice median.

    We'll just have to wait and see!

    Townsville - FNQ. Weather is sensational this time of year. About 12 degrees minimum - 29 maximum.

    But I do miss the surf. No waves up here - and too many things in the water that bite!

    Yeah I bet.... I have some family up there that don't swim either. I'm down the beach all the time. The new studio I moved into is only a few hundred metres from the beach.
