    How can you say "how is my web design" when it isn't yours, its a Joomla template!

    That aside, it looks pro, there is plenty of 'white space' around things and is easy to navigate.

    Some people might have issue with the colour of the text in that it is not contrasty enough with the background colour.

    why dont you put the text on the front next to that picture rather than below it

    i think it will look alot better in my opinion

    "Today in this article, I will give a little recipe for making authentic Persian Koobideh Kabobs.

    Ingredients needed: 2 pounds of ground beef or ground turkey, 1 onion, 1 garlic, 1 pack of Kabob seasoning, Sumac (Optional), lavish bread, a fourth of a stick of butter, and a pack of metal skewers"

    that text to the right of photo

    looks nice, maybe make the "headlines" in another color, like darker for example, so you easy see and notice it

    and why do you have "Registration is FREE, and you can submit your own articles!
    Please register today for your own member profile." in two places, I would rather have the picture with the black on the left side, just keep it away from text?

    You need margins around the images.

    Your HTML does not validate and neither does your CSS, so you should remove the two links at the bottom.

    Oh dear....sorry I'm going to be brutal. I'm very straight forward with crits and I don't sugar coat things. If I sound like I'm a jerk, I'm sorry.

    You need to work on your typography. My eye immediately zoomed right to the widow you had with the white type near the photograph.

    Just because we are online doesn't mean you get to be lazy.

    Your color scheme needs serious help.

    Go to this website called Kuler.

    Some nice people made some color palettes for you already, or you can make your own. Play around with this thing, you will learn so much about color. I also recommend reading up on color theory.

    Typing things in all caps is not your friend. Makes people slow down their reading when you do that. It's okay for some stuff but you have a whole block of in for your navigation.

    What happened to the bottom part of the website? You have huge rivers and weird paragraph alignments going on, and you have no spacing between your picture and the type.
