    Default please give honest feedback

    Hi!
    This is my latest site. The guys from Xara are still figuring out why some images won't be edited in the cloud, but they also cannot find anything wrong with the document, so we decided to publish it to the world.

    I would love to know if you see or notice any issues/fixes

    ThnX!

    Posts with links in this forum are moderated. I approved the post.

    I like the site. The black and white background images load a little slow but that might be because you are in the Netherlands and I am in the other lands of New Mexico USA.

    The site works well on the technical side, so if there were issues, your fixes have worked. There is a slight gap at the top of each page, but that may be intentional. I'm really trying to find the issues you are referring to.

    If you're asking what people think about the design, or artistry, then that's subjective. I always try to make the background a contrast to the foreground and either blur or fade it. But my daughter, who is much more artistic than me, often sticks her nose in and tells me it's boring. See? Subjective.

    On the Teksten page I would make the background a Parallax scroll and not mirror the image, but overall I do think you've matched the look of the site with the look of the artist, which I personally find hard to do.

    I have tried to be honest. Please remember I typed 'subjective' on numerous occasions

    The image carousel fights with the text that sits above it and the flying "Moi" because the images either clash with the text (text overlaying text in the picture) or just make for a background that makes the text hard to read. Not a fan of the flying "Moi".


    Surprised (and disappointed) to see in 2019 an image of a guy with a cigarette in his mouth being used for promotion. It's old-school cool rather than modern cool.

    It would be nice to give some of your boxed text some room to breathe - the text is right against the enclosing boxes in places. Some text (click here) ends with a colon for some reason.

    Foto's need no apostrophe.

    Looks poor at mobile sizes.

    Good luck.

    It's because that's the subject/title of the song

    In Dutch the plural of foto is written with an apostrophe.

    Maybe do some research Paul, before commenting.

    It's honest feedback and now I've learned something so it's all good.

    I don't think your tone is warranted.

    The site language is set to be English. I suspect that's why Chrome isn't offering me the option of translation.

    How very convenient that it is <html lang="en" >
    But you're from the British isles and you couldn't see it isn't English?
    It's just a blah blah response because you were jumping conclusions.

    And subjectivity joins the game.

    The photo with the cigarette and the head in the hands, dark mood are my two favourite photos. The observation about the mobile site is correct, I didn't look at that, you're not as lazy as me pauland.
