Okay, I don’t want to shatter any dreams but this is WAY off approval quality. The graphical elements are mediocre at best, there are lots of spacing issues, the typography needs work…

Really, you need to work on everything. It looks like you’ve just grabbed various graphical elements and just stuck it all together.

Keep trying.

Scott.

Honestly.

I’m not trying to put you down, but this IS NOWHERE NEAR GOOD ENOUGH , sorry.

Take the criticism and move forward, if you’re not willing to accept that it’s not good enough then you will never improve, trust me.

All I see right with it at the moment is the photo…

Even as HTML /Wordpress it wouldn’t get approved, the PSD category is even harder!

There are elements I like, however they don’t all work together. You are mixing different styles. Pick one style and stick with it.

The colors also need some tweaking, The black just doesn’t fit with the other colors you have, if you replace the bright red and black with a color ranging from a dark red to a dark purple (think eggplant) I think it would fit a little bit better. If you go with that color scheme though some of your visual elements such as your menu and login menu wouldn’t fit i, however an the effect you use for your twitter and face book icons (properly aligned) would.

If you keep the red and black, look at replacing the main color you’re using with white/light gray. With this color scheme your menu bar, login box, footer might look a little more in place.

Keep practicing and keep trying and remember, if at first you don’t succeed, sky diving wasn’t your sport.

That nav is like 10 minutes work, and I guarantee if you don’t improve that it will NOT be approved.

It’s not a valid reason to keep it in my opinion, if you can improve, make it better, you shouldn’t stop :)
