I'm designing my website at the moment. Which do you prefer sections along the top or sections to the left?

I really appreciate any input no matter how brief.

other sizes: small medium large original

@stu Thanks for the feedback Stu. I suppose I've never had my own photohome beyond pbase. Your blog is looking fine, will rss it and add it to my netvibes collection.

@Oleg cheers mate!

Steve,it's really difficult and since I found this guy to design my site I have found this....
Which I think I prefer!!!
Steve Viscot15-Jan-2010 13:14
graphically, for this page it looks better on the left but if you want to keep the layout for all your pages...difficult hey :)
btw if you go for the top layout I'd use

Thanks Anuschka!
I'm really going for a super clean aesthetic.

On the top, because that way you can isolate the image by scrolling and look at it uncluttered by text.

Thanks Raymond. I think I will use information on the side when you click through from the main page to the galleries.

I like the side better, it seems to me to be a more elegant and stylish layout. If you like to often caption your shots
then it really works well in my opinion :o)

Thank you Sam and Russel.
What do people think about the categories. Knwing the kind of weirdo I am, do yoi think I could package my best pictures in this way?

I like the top, bigger picture, cleaner. The bottom isn't bad either if you choose that.
Good luck on the site!

Thanks Sue!

Hi David.. I like them along the top.. they look more like selections there and yes it seems cleaner..

Thanks all. This page will also be a flash slideshow of my portfolio images. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Top is better - more about the picture than anything else.
Gonzalo GV14-Jan-2010 16:20
Top, seems more clean & minimalistic !

Thanks Sharon. This is given me a headache!
Also going to take out the line of the top one and change the font.
Clean is the target.

top, but both look good - nice & clean
