They call that a monitor screen that is wrong configured lol (over saturated)
But I need to update it as I said and I want to improve the contrast with the bg and content but the text is dark enough and not a contrast problem in my opinion.

oh before I forget my site has also other color schemes (and yes the contrast on these is way too low :p):

The contrast between the background of the content/tabs and the text colour doesn't come close to meeting WCAG AA for example.

I know that those styles fail at the contrast standard that's why they aren't default.
Also the default style is quite low contrast which needs to be changed* but haven't had time to do that yet have been working too much on my projects ^^


* edit: not changing I mean, was planning to rewrite.

LoL, sorry,.... is just that i had the "pleasure" of working in Tandem with that agency, and boy do they think too high of themselves.

Ok, sorry, back in topic, your website looks awesome, and as a GOOD designer should know, dont adhere to standards, just "best practices" otherwise you will kill all design innovation. :)

Fraid not.

And a good web designer thinks about the content first. If the content is hard to read then it's a pretty big stumbling block right out of the gate. In this case the standard is very much a "best practice".

I thought your second navigation (the one closer to the content) was broken for a second till I realized you went with a 2-color nav. Kinda cool but I would try to make the the bottom color closer to the top color so it doesn't appear broken to visitors.


Hmm good idea. I'll give that a try when I have time. going out right now. :)

Thanks mate.

I'm lucky to have a job that lets me film some very unusual underwater critters. I specialise in macro videography. Most things on my site are very very small...and very very rare...
