    I've been collecting and organizing photos of coral for some time now, and this week I finally decided to do something with them. Last night I got a wild hair and built out a website to display them on. Check it out and let me know your thoughts especially when it comes to the experience on mobile devices.

    Wonderful site mike, I was surprised there wasn't anything about tridacna :p

    Only problem I had on my mobile was the THOUSANDS of pictures for acans and acropora lol

    A "return to top" button would be nice too

    The site worked well on android. Loaded quickly, ect. Great resource. If I had to criticize, I'd mention the white balance. The corals look too blue, which is caused by the light temp. This can be corrected during or after exposure. One good way to tell is look at the egg crate. It should be approximately white. The only reason I bring it up is that it's difficult to tell what the real color of the corals are. That's a minor issue compared the the fantastic collection of photos you have there.

    I see mostly black eggcrate, that being said there was a lot of blue hue.
