**/webdesign.html** Your portfolio is visually disorganized. Try to get a preview of golden dimensions. The preview is difficult to appreciate if tailored according to the mouse pointer. I prefer a modal slideshow. That will give you time to load one or more images of better quality.
-I think it looks more like a News website.
-this image http://www.michaeldesigncompany.com/images/slider.jpg looks like an advertisement banner. (and what’s the point of loading a bigger image and then scale it with css? It would be fine if you’re site would be responsive, but it’s not..this leads me to the next point)
-make it responsive
Overall, I think the graphic design looks messy..try to go for a cleaner layout
A website’s colour scheme is one of those things that you need to get right in order for it to look visually eye-catching, on your website you use;
Light red – #8A0314
Dark Red – #14000C
Light Blue – #42B4D4
Lightish Grey – #9A9A9A
Dark Blue – #0E3977
Black – #000000
White – #FFFFFF
Bright Orange – #AD3E00
There is such an array of colours, that it’s hard to to keep a consistent flow. As @JoniGiuro said, the banner does look like an advertisement banner, it doesn’t really look professional at all and definitly will not attract clients.
