    Here in this site, you must set the content on right site in min 4 to 5 line. Means short discription same as a photo height. the second point is Set the perfect height and width of Images which are in left side. Make these changes your site looking more beautiful.

    Quick review:

    I would change the header to appear more newspaper like.
    The black shadow on the red font doesn't really work
    The text is too close to the picture, 3pixels?
    Clicking the picture => Same as read more link.
    Read more should redirect straight to the article, as now you have to search for it.
    Orange font on lightgray seems odd, maybe something darker

    The heading isnt particularly appealing. Also, the small text next to the photos looks awkward. I'd prefer to have large one-liner headlines.

    Logo and heading is not great. Does not stand out. You should make links that go off site open in a new tab using the _blank target method. You do not want people leaving your site, they might not make it back.

    I think you should make the images smaller and add a lot more. You have this one huge section with big images, minimal content. Then you have smaller sections that have a lot of content, but no real "dazzle", just links.

    Another thing is your content. I use two news aggregator sites. I don't want the major news, I already know that. The first thing I see is.. Dick Clark Dies. Old news, I do not need to read another story about it.

    I use this site here:
    http://slashdot.org/
    Because they have unusual news I that is hard to find.

    And i use this site here:
    http://www.fark.com/
    Because of the lay out is easy to navigate and all the sources.

    You should try to do a more hybrid of these two sites.

    The images are on the news sites. I take automatically, the link only. This is the reason I can set only the height or width. Not both because the images will show distorted.

    I've visited these sites and they have a different approach. But I didn't see anything special. It is just my opinion.

    Thank you for feedback.
