Please have a look - Part2
That was my first design (ever), which, despite positive feedback + things I could work on, I wasn't too happy with. I thought it was too dark, So I decided to switch it up: Here is my new design: http://imgur.com/fDYgru1 (This is just a basic layout, more will be added)
Is the choice of colors way to strong? Again I'd love some feedback. Like mentioned in the last post, I'm new to this, but it's a lot of fun!

I don't think that the color match well. You should probably use complementary colors like blue and orange, or colors that are more similar to each other like lighter and darker shades of green. But that's just my onpion.
You've certainly gone from dark to light! :) Have you tried experimenting with sharper lines? It could be image quality but they seem to be a tad on the blurred side.
The green is cool but I do not think the choice of blue works with your color scheme. Have a look at this site, it's invaluable. https://kuler.adobe.com/create/color-wheel/
I don't mind the links, personally not a fan of the typography you chose and I don't like the border on the tabs. It's too sharp, but again the blue doesn't fit with the green in my honest opinion.
I like your intro. Have you considered making your highlighted text more unique? Perhaps italicized, a bit bigger, underlined, hell even a different font? You want these things to pop at the users eye.
What are you trying to do with your website? Have you gone through the planning process yet? Looks like you are trying to put emphasis on your work, which is great! Consider adding some images up front, doesn't have to be a slider.

You are definitely off to a great start with your two versions. Keep up the good work.
