ok, very nice, some things you might consider:
1) Adding a little contrast (darken up the darker shades on the page a bit)
2) add rollovers to the menu and other links that may bring them back to no opacity
you change those to things i think this could be a really nice website.
Very light, as mentioned. Rollover colors should be something to give it some color, IMO. Maybe the orange used at the top? Don't know if that will end up looking to bright or not, you can play with it and see, I suppose.
It does have a nice look to it, but the light colors make it appear faded and a little hard to read.
i still suggest making this thing darker. Its not a good thing to make visitors strain to be able to read the page and make it out. I would sooner move on to somewhere else then continue with straining to use it.
Just like nearly everybody said here, it is too light. Your header is fine, the contrast between your name and the background is ok, but your side text and links are way too light. It looks like you're going for a soft look, which is fine, but you shouldn't sacrafice readability for looks. Making the text color a couple shades darker won't hurt the appearance. Have you tried making it a bit darker and didn't like it or do you just have your heart set on this? Also, there's something wrong with your tables (looks like a missing rowspan or 2). See screenshot.
