Looks great! Just be sure to fix the spelling errors in the ad/news frames.

i really dont knoww why people like dark themes, its better a light theme..

using white backgrounds and some blues will make it way more attractive.

just my opinion, your next theme should be more "alive"

Color scheme you used is pretty good, I like it. Reds and grays fit together. But...

Furthermore, it's not only an aesthetic issue, but a functional one too. White backgrounds with dark fonts are much more legible. We are used to read this way. Think about books, newspapers and so. Light background and dark font.
Just try to read a lot of light text on a dark background... and your eyes will give in.

In conclusion, you can make a dark theme but, in my opinion (not only as user but as visitor too), if you keep the rule 'light background / dark font' it will be always better. Navigation bars or menus, for example, with dark bg + light font will be fine.
But large paragraphs... It hurts, seriously.

Lighter backgrounds (for large text-containing divs, of course) would fit good with your color scheme, I supose.

I have to agree, especially if you are older and your viewing a site at the end of the day. I just move on if I come to a website with white writing on a dark background. I just can't read it with out my eyes hurting. Guess most people should realise that all the big sites out there are light backgrounds with dark writing.. but hey again personal opinion. :) But the art work is very nice though, that's from an artist p.o.v.. being an artist and photographer. So well done for that.

Dark design is ok, but.....

BRIGHT DIGITAL STUDIO

Dark Design is OK BUT..... This is too dark...
If you are a beginner it`s OK.
just think that is this theme was for your customer, how it will end?
You should not forget that after design you have to code it.

In my personal experience I am saying,
Before you start work you should have well idea of what you are going to do.
Like Planning, Designing, Developing, Marketing and Analyzing.

I do have a dark theme too...BRIGHT DIGITAL STUDIO

Best wishes for a bright future.
