Hi all,
Long time I didn't post here.
Just wanted to introduce my new website www.michelbraunstein.com
It contains my images, photo-articles and now a TV section with some "Must See" clips.
I hope you'll like it. Feel free to comment for any improvement.
Regards,
Michel

Hi Michel,
I am able to load it, no problem. I like the quality of the images but got confused. I had trouble understanding which parts were yours and which were made by others that you are just showing on your site. The article on the pink dolphins is written by you and the images shot by you I believe and very well done. But just below it is a reference to the giant squid captured on video. Written by you ? It's really not easy to tell what you did versus what is done by others you are just trying to draw attention to.

I also found it interesting that your " Who am I?" page never answers the question. Your name is at the top but no where in the body of the page. If one is scrolling down it's easy to get confused. Maybe a "Hi I'm Michel or a signature at the bottom?

Cheers,
Steve

All good here, wordpress rocks.... building sites with HTML is so old school now....
Looks are loads fast over here in AUS.

Mike your IP address may be blocked by the the sites server. Turn your modem and computer off for 5+ mins and then try as your IPS provider will assign you a new IP number.
If that does not work then you need to contact his server host to white list your IP number or force the modem to dump and grab a new IP number.
If you can proxy surf to his site then this is what's has happen.

Mike! So sorry you can't see my website. Especially you :( I really wanted you to see my new website, remember some souvenirs of Jim Church in Palau and see the works that followed. I hope you will eventually succeed. Please let me know. Btw, are you still in Indonesia?

Steve, thank you so much for your great comments. I've already modified the "Who am I" page as you've advised me.
The website is divided in a few categories, Articles, Galleries and Publications are all mine, News are mainly mine, but sometimes I'm also adding some news about the dive world.
TV category includes mainly interesting video clips which related to the sea/nature/photography that I would like to share. These clips are not mine, but I have participated to a few of them.
As the is built with Wordpress, which is a blog engine, each time that a new post is entered, it appears "Last in/first up" in the lower part of the home page. This means that all the clips appear there as well, even if they are not mine. Thank you for your remark, which is very important. I will have to think on a way to make people understand that this content is not mine but only shared. How would you think it can be the best way doing this? Would it be clear enough just to add "Shared content" to the specific posts?

Wagsy, thanks for the nice comment. I'm happy to know that website is running fast from Australia, while it's hosted in the US.
