    I've added e-commerce (through Zenfolio) and removed all advertisments and branding from Zenfolio, and changed the music to a more urban beat to go with my shooting style/genre.

    About 20 of the latest shots were with the E-P2 :43:

    Check it out: From celluloid to silicon, images always endure.

    As always- all *constructive* criticism welcome.

    thanks for sharing the link; your site is great. I also love street photography in NYC; my son and I often take the train in from suburban NJ and just spend the whole day street shooting. I love the B&W portraits in particular, specially of the man on the bench with his dog (a French bulldog or a Boston terrier?). Good stuff.

    I also appreciate the opportunity to look over a site done via Zenfolio - I posted earlier this week asking advice for online photo sharing/sales sites. I have read web comparisons also and Zenfolio and Smugmug Pro appear to be the two sites that offer a lot of customization of the look and feel.

    Thanks a bunch.:thumbup:

    Zenfolio is 100X better than SmugMug.

    The interface is worlds apart.. Zenfolio is intuitive, while SmugMug has the most buggy, confusing software.

    In addition, SmugMug nickel and dimes you for shipping and thier image quality is lousy for prints.

    Speaking as a designer..

    Have you considered using wordpress?
    I find it much more configurable, and with far fewer limitations..

    EDIT: forgot the best part.. you don't have to pay the zenfolio people!
