    An intro might have been better before asking for help but my opinion is below none the less :)

    If I'm honest it's boring, it doesn't really show any skills that you have. If you look at sites that belong to web designers they show their skills to the fullest, not a site that some one could do pretty easily.

    There's also an issue with the bottom in firefox, I can scroll past the grey footer and see the blue background again.

    To quote what I said in your intro thread:

    you can do simple but at the minute it's neither simple or showing off your skills.

    Simple is something like Harry's (link) which doesn't have a lot of flashy bits or colour but because of that it works.

    Yours at the minute looks like doesn't look simple, it looks like you've tried to inject some style but ended up making it look boring.

    I don't like it, im sorry.
    It's not simple and I feel that everything is BIG and overly SPACIOUS.

    It's work in progress though so keep going and trying out new ideas... you'll get there.

    I agree with the Hippy, you just need a bit of experience and confidence i guess.

    I'm not sure about your portfolio but your Latin is second to none!

    Recent studies* suggest 90% of people looking to hire a web designer consider Latin to be like a second language ;)

    *My sources never lie...

    Erm... I like the logo :)

    I would do a bit more research and find a site that you like, look at the spacing and typography and learn from it. Decide on an effective palette - there are plenty of sites to help you out.

    As is previously stated - you want to showcase your skills as a designer, currently your site does not do that very successfully.
