Okay so the problem I'm seeing immediately is that you have two sets of quotes after your href. One points to an image, the other to a page. One of them should be removed. If you are trying to add an image, it needs to be seperate from the <a> tag in it's own <img> tag.

I hope that helps, but let me know if you need further help, or if I misunderstood the goal.

Your code says: <li><a href="numbers-01.jpg""index.html">Portfolio</a></li> The correct format should be <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>. Then you need to insert the image tag where needed. <img src="numbers-01.jpg">

The code challenge is asking you to add an unordered list of images to the Empty <section> below the one you have edited.

Here's what a correct solution will look like

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
          <li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>
        </ul>
      </nav>
    </header>
    <section>
      <ul>
        <li><img src="numbers-01.jpg"></li>
        <li><img src="numbers-02.jpg"></li>
        <li><img src="numbers-06.jpg"></li>
      </ul>
    </section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>
