Ah Karu, your thread slipped right through. :O

I think your typography needs some revamping. I think for what you’ve got going so far a serif font would look nice and add to it’s style.

I like the idea of the transparent content containers but I just don’t think it works well with these colors or the background. Maybe some sort of semi transparent solid color background that is complimentary to the brown background.

The footer text is too bright. Copyright info and stuff in the footer is the least important content on the page. Because the footer text is mostly white, it actually fights for attention with the content above it.

The header area could use a little more space and the logo could be bumped down a bit as it feels crowded at the top.

I like that you’re going for simplicity with this design concept but I’m not a fan of a super simple navigation with this particular style. Something a little more styled maybe with exaggerated hover and active indication.

Hmm, I think the last thing I’d suggest is to spice up your color scheme. Check out http://kuler.adobe.com and see if any of those color schemes catch your attention. Sometimes the right complimentary colors and really set off a template.

I hope this helps! :)

Hello Karu

Its Good design but header needs some room to breath and other than that Headings need to be more highlighted and proper spacings. Overall need some final touch up and for [featured area] make that area a bid darker.

Thats it for my views wait for others comments as well.

It’s a nice template, but i feel it’s missing something graphically.

I think you should emphasize the header a little more through the use of a different background/color/etc just to make it stand out.

And not to be negative, but it is EXACTLY the same layout as that minimal one;

I do however quite like yours, it is just missing something, maybe the colour scheme is a bit off, I think it would look better at the other end of the contrast spectrum, light not dark. Liking it overall though, good job.
