New photography website

Hey all,

A mate and myself have started a new website - not much; just pictures of Glasgow (and eventually the surrounding areas); figured this was the best place to come to ask for a wee bit of feedback, both on the website itself and the content.

Have a look around and let me know what you think.

Glasgow Photographs.com

Cheers.

I know this is a bit of a necro-thread now, but I figured it was better than starting a new one.

It's been a few months since we started Glasgow Photographs now, and I'm fairly happy with how it looks.  Still looking for feedback from folk here, though, so if anybody has any thoughts to share on it, I'd be more than happy to hear them.

Some nice pics there and a nice layout.

I personally would like to see more variety on there.

New topics would make it an even better site.

Nice site and well laid out. But to be honest mate most folk look on FlikR and image banks for general Glasgow photos.
If you want to ramp up the viewing figures you'll have get down deep and dirty and grab photos that have that unique quality form a perspective not normaly seen. Folks love that sort of thing hence UG and the contributions you'll find on here and the watermark makes me think your commercial perhaps?

Cheers, guys.

@Fjord:  The watermark thing is something of a sore spot.  No, we're not commercial in any way (we're just two idiots with cameras), but my mate was really paranoid about people stealing our photos - he has an over-inflated ego.  That's why some of the earlier stuff has the watermark - he insisted on it; I took full control nearly three months ago and scrapped the watermarking (hence why the later stuff doesn't have it).  As I update the galleries with watermarks, I'll reload unmarked copies of those already up on the site.  Pain in the backside.

I've got no doubt you can find the same (and better) stuff on other sites; this is just a wee hobby, so I'm content with what we've got in terms of images just now.  Part of the reason I joined UG a while ago was to help drive me to look for unusual stuff; it's worked to some extent.

@Fastnet:  What other kind of topics do you think we should include?

Just more general Glasgow landmarks.

Have a look at the popular threads on here to see how folks like them.

Just one photograph of a tunnel in Glasgow delivering loaves,laundry, WW1 dead bodies & bullion will make you an instant millionaire.
