Layout changes and City in Motion

Layout changes

As I mentioned in my previous post my blog is undergoing some serious changes at the moment. You can see some of them today (but there are much more to come in following days but they should follow current direction). In a few weeks or months I will also probably switch from Blogger to Wordpress because I'm getting a little fed up with limitations Blogger imposes on its users. Well, ease of use comes at some cost.

This time I decided to make layout much simpler, less cluttered and better for viewing photos and reading tutorials. It means that I spent some time increasing readability (increased font sizes) and changed theme to virtually black & white. There might be some colours still remaining but I'm working on that too.

Also navigation should be now simpler as I made a few adjustments here as well. Also different sections of the blog should be now better highlighted what should also improve ease of navigation.

I also replaced images shown in the slideshow in top part of the blog (and made the slideshow simpler with much less text which could be distractive). They are also now stored in higher quality what should make them more crisp and detailed. And hopefully will make visitors hungry for more ;)

I would really appreciate your feedback on the changes I made so far. What do you like and even more importantly - what you don't?

Daily photo - London. City in Motion

A bit different photo today. It shows colourful light trails created by passing cars and buses on Westminster Bridge. To create such effect I used long-exposure (13 s). I went a bit crazy with post-processing on this because I thought that this photo deserves really vibrant and bright colours.
