McFarlane Site: Cool New Design

Mike McFarlane's site is an example of the new design in photographer's sites. Clean, easy to navigate and very functional, the site looks very hip and fresh. Going to the different portfolios is easy and I love the home page with the news, welcome text, featured images and search engine friendliness.

Many photographers choose to be locked in to Flash sites that are difficult to navigate, have no search engine ranking, and cannot be updated by anyone than the Flash designer. This type of site is the antidote to that providing a simple CSS based page and text for SE's.

Only neg I have is the refreshing page on the galleries. Even on my large monitor it keeps refreshing and forcing to the top. Then I have to scroll. A little AJAX or some cool work with CSS and it should be easy to fix that small annoyance.

Excellent work, Mike.
