I think that is part of the problem, and I've said this before. The color choices are ugly. Blue, especially one not so saturated, would have been better than the weird cyan color. It clashes with the other colors. Same with the yellowish tapioca green color.

I was going to refer to these colors by a color family name that illustrates their harshness, but I couldn't find a color family with these colors - probably because they really don't go we'll together.

This site is about photography. Photography is essentially visual. A website about photography, therefore, should be visually pleasing. That means a sensible choice of colors, which we don't have here, unfortunately.
