It looks like you might've forgot to provide the URL to it.

I actually really like the design. It is done very well. I have two ideas on how it could be improved.
First, the links/urls could be cleaned up a little. For example instead of ....com/about/about.html, you could just make it ....com/about.html.
Also, the pages seem to be a little too wide, making a scroll bar appear at the bottom. I took a quick scan of the source code but couldn't find what was causing that.

Thank you, i definitely should clean up the links, I made this a bit ago and haven't changed my files around so thats why the links are. And yea I am not too sure what is making it too wide, ive noticed the problem, it may be my hamburger button being too big in mobile view, i planned to make a new website using bootstrap in the near future. Thanks for the advice

Good clean layout. Well written code. Nice photos indeed. Good contrast on the words.
Just a comment on the load time/ speed of the site.

Your main page got a good performance score of 95/100 even with a single huge file of 4.2MB.

This resource page - https://topalternatives.com/testing-your-websites-speed-and-performance/ is a good review when building websites. Speed is now an important factor as well as size of website especially because of mobile users.

With pingdom - http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/KLsG1/http://michaelkulbacki.com/Projects/project.html you will note that the file MKwhite.png is taking up much of the load time due to its size.

If building with some framework. Try Pure - http://purecss.io/

Yea since I have so many images on my Landscape page and so on, I wanted to make sure to limit the file sizes to maintain a good loading time. I will definitely check out those links. I was also debating implementing a lazy loader for some of the Landscape images. Solid advice thanks!

The design of the site is minimalistic and clean, I'm liking it.

You've taken some wonderful photos as well, great job man.

Clean, well thought out, uncluttered and easy to navigate.
You're definitely on the right track!

Hmm... Don't recall it being legal for you to copy someone else's work and claim it as your own? (That includes templates unless it was specifically 100% free and included a license) Which in the event you could post it on here, a DMCA would not be nice...

Yes the template was free and if you look in my GitHub repo where my website has been hosted for quite some time, I do give the proper license :)
