    The color choices are nice and readable. I like the font I get on my mobile better than on the web version. The sans serif(is that right?) is easier to read.

    The banner looks good in both versions on the intended devices.
    (Doesn't look so good on a mobile view in my Chrome browser, but that is a personal problem due to my tethering solution.)

    I read through a Google Reader mostly, so the format doesn't make any difference there. :0 It also means I don't remember the old template so well. 🙂

    Jeff, I've been following your work for a few months now, and I love the detail you put into your work.

    I do like the new layout of the site, but I have to say I am not a fan of the color scheme. From a readability standpoint, it's very hard for me to read. Click here for a good article on text and background colors, and when to use them.

    Thanks and keep up the great work,

    Looks good. I like the colors and layout. The grays set off the images nicely and the orange is used sparingly enough not to intrude.

    I might suggest a little more space between the posts; the separation is a bit subtle.

    The links to the large images are great. I always like to see your work reproduced large enough to appreciate the refinement.

    Jeff, has anyone mentioned to you that white text on a dark background is difficult to read for many people? It is not recommended by the engineers – I am married to one – who work on the human interface with software/screens etc. If you notice, Google changed all of their screens to white and that was based on research.
