Which of these two layouts do you prefer?

Hey,
After some negative feedback of my current site (still under development), I am starting to doubt whether I chose the right template. Now my attention goes towards another one too. The purpose is a presentation of photography works. What do you guys think?

My current layout:
asp-photo.com


Or this one:
pexetothemes.com/demos/expression_wp/

I prefer the second layout, the first layout have navigation kind of hidden, think you might loose some user because of that, and the first layout only show a slide show, doesn't give users a general overview of the photo work.

Maybe you could make a compromise, and show a smaller slide show at the top of the webpage, and show some of the photo work below the slide show.

I see thanks! The real gallery is actually located in menu->gallery, while the slideshow at the front page is only to give a glimpse at the content. -but maybe its better to include the gallery at the front page as you suggest.

The second one.

That being said it is not very good from a SEO point of view.

In their current form I have to vote for number 2. I do think JH's suggestion may change my opinion if you can implement it.

You both need to back you reply up with a reason why you think what you think.

I like the second one the best. It has a clean design and there are not too many colors in the actual web design to distract from the pictures that would be displayed. Also I love how you can see the pictures before clicking anything in the second design. The only pro about the first one is that you have a square loader. I thought that was interesting.
