So, I'm getting somewhat close to graduating, and they make you take a portfolio class to get into the habit of presenting one's work.

So... ta-dah?

I think Catt only posts here when he wants something.

I agree.

I like the Himalayan temple, especially the interior shot with the rice paper walls. The diffuse lighting is perfect and if I didn't know better I'd assume it was a photograph.

Verra nice.

Cool stuff, but I personally dislike the itunes flip through thingy, I prefer seeing just the images.
And I would put a stronger image last, place your second best image first to draw people in and end with your best image to leave people impressed.
From what you have there, I'd pick the temple as first image and the space station last. Those two had the biggest wow factor for me.

Edit: Also, it's a lot of grey and brown, if you have some good more colourful work I'd fit that in somewhere for some variety.

The "rm" logo is clever; nice touch. It might be worth incorporating into other parts of the site, like in subject lines, somehow. I also like that the color scheme is built off of the central image. It looks cohesive.

I'm not a fan of the itunes flip gallery thing, either, though. I find that it looks odd because the images aren't all the same size, or have the same type of background. The "968 Tris" image, for example, looks like it doesn't have a background, because it's white on the site's white backdrop. The french garden plants and temple images also have dissimilar appearances like that.

A minor quibble, but the directions say "double click to enlarge", but it only takes a single click.

Other than that, it looks solid enough. Wix is a good choice...their editor is actually very flexible. I used them for my portfolio when I was getting out of school. There's a lot of neat stuff that can be done with it, if you're willing to put in some time.

Here's mine, if it helps:

All the nuance is lost on me so I don't have much of an opinion. The demo reel looked really good to me though, nice work. I also like the "rm" logo quite a bit.
