Maverick, I had the exact same thought... in that collage, Jesus is the only one clothed...

Yes. I just couldn't find an image of Him that worked well. He would also be appproximately the same height and build as the rest of His people.


I couldn't even find a decent portrayal of a shirtless Jesus (where He wasn't hanging from the cross). Maybe an artistic user could design something. If not, it's still a good image.

And likely looking at not out over them. Not easy to make working composites.

Just FYI: I just logged in and this is what I'm seeing:

I'm assuming this has to do with whatever wonderful adjustments Natman is making to the site, but thought I'd make it known anyway.

I'm using Firefox 41.0 on a Windows 10 64-bit laptop with 1920x1080 resolution, if that makes any difference.

The shade of blue in "Is there a new look at this website?" is hard for me to see.
A darker shade would be helpful.

FWIW - The black background is a bit distracting for my tastes.

Ditto for me. Subtle differences from NC are appreciated.

You asked for input Mister Natman, well i can't say i'm too keen on the new colours myself, i dont like all the black, and the white on light blue accents don't work for me either. To be honest i thought my monitor was playing up :? How about more autumnal colours, ie getting back to nature ? You can't beat a nice shade of brown :D 8)

I had the same initial reaction to all the black, Sarah. I have no real problem separating the white from blue as some have stated but thought perhaps I'd done something to cause the change, thinking uh oh.

And I as regards the black.

The overall on my screens so far, is a bit more legible, but my eyes would be happy with more text / background contrast - the original was often hard to make out without serious magnification.

I don't mind the black background much, but the color scheme does seem to not match up to well with it. I would think the overall colors need to darken some to fit better.

Expect color changes every so often as I play with the colors.

I too do not care for the cyanish color for some of the lettering on the light blue background.

I am, in particular, trying to make this site contrast to the NC site for various reasons. I am hoping to add a variable banner and sidebar with links to Christian and naturist resources.

I'm wondering Nathan if the new color schemes are an attempt to distance the site from any association with Naturist Christian's (N-C) founder, William R. Martin, with whom you've had considerable disagreement as witnessed by many of us on N-C.

I think there needs to be more of a contrast between the blue text and the cyan background. Maybe it's my colorblindness, but I have a hard time seeing the text.
