Final Site on California Condor

It took many, many, many sleepless hours, but I am thrilled to have completed my site. Please let me know what you think. I changed the design, colors and text fonts. Hope this is an improvement from the original design.

Five Bad and Good Websites

Bad Sites

The overall design is not good, the color the information and how the title of the page is place on a banner. Just doesn't work.

Although a few of the pictures posted are good, the site design is very plain. It looks very similar to a brochure.

This site appears really busy. The font doesn't help because it adds to that busy look. 

I like the picture of the condor, but most of the information on the bird begins at the bottom of the page.

This site looks very similar to a blog, though I do like the colors in the design and the information provided on the California Condor with lot's of great pictures of the birds in their habitat. 

There are no pictures of the condor! 

Good Sites

This is a great site, I really like the colors and overall design. The fast facts and audio are also a great. Check it out.

Always an informative site.

Bad and Good Websites

This website is bad because everything looks thrown together. I don't like the font that was chosen; the colors don't work well together. Nor does the placement of the menu. There's no apostrophe in,"Don'ts"

What I don't like about this website is the scrolling menu isn't easily assessable, it moves up then down; I like to easily navigate my way around a site. I also don't like the placement of the menu; I'd prefer if it were placed at the left or top and the photographer's name doesn't grab my attention right away; maybe a bolder color would work. The music is okay, but I'd prefer the initial volume lowered.

I like the design of this site; the colors, the placement of the photographer's name and the menu are easily viewed. The music is mellow, which is nice and the option of flash or html works as well because it gives you the option of viewing the site at your preference. 

I really like this site because it has a great design, menu's, it is simple but works, very easy to navigate and the photographer's name is easily seen. Also, a plus is the sideshow's featuring her wedding photography; the music she chose and photographs were enjoyable.
