    Nice site and gallery.

    If I may:
    1) a little bit of additional info would be nice. Just the English names for the birds in the Avian gallery, and perhaps locations in the Landscape gallery?
    2) Personally, I have an issue with the typical "contact request". I much prefer websites where the contact information (phone number or preferably e-mail address) is supplied. I realize this constitutes a risk, but I much prefer being able to send a normal e-mail to having to fill in a questionaire.

    Thanks Elsa & Peter...

    Peter, I am in agreement in terms of the names in the gallery but I am struggling getting a decent text colour - it is a "dull" grey that is hardly readable...

    Let me work some more on it ...

    Peter I agree on the contact - but the reasons for using a contact form is two fold - firstly - spam - and secondly - it creates a data base for the photographer (not that most use it anyway) but it offers the website owner the opportunity at least - and we are looking at this from the owner's point of view - not yours and mine . I usually do both. But ya - the SPAMMMMMMM
