Cosmid is up for review today, and I honestly had no idea what to expect with a name like that. Thankfully, there are no aliens here (that I know of), just some hot, everyday women looking good. It's a simple site, and I assume these people know more about photographic women than they do making websites, so it's bound to happen on these types of sites. The tagline here advertises they they offer real American girls shot by professional photographers, so that's the main theme here I guess. The girls look good here overall, so that should be a definite plus. $20 a month gets you in the door, which is about right for this type of site right now I'd say.
One of the best surprises here was to see the update schedule they had going. When you look in their tour, the updates are out of order a bit, so it didn't hit me. Thankfully, something new is put up daily here. When they add a new model, they now try to add both a photo set and a video at the same time, which would make those specific daily updates twice as large.
Quality is decent all around.
It's never over-the-top awesome here, but it's always good in both the pictures and the videos. The videos all come in high definition, and the photos look nice, as they should, as they bill themselves as professional photographers.
Other Good Stuff:
I like that each model has several sets here, as it lets you get to know the girls that much better (or jack off to her that much more).
The girls here looked better than most I'd say, and they stayed true to the amateur, everyday girl theme that they set out for.
Some small photo issues at times.
I do have a few issues with the photos here and there, which is especially true since they advertise their professional photography. Several photos are over-exposed in my opinion, which may just be a style of photography for them, but it's not usually present; some sets are just worse than others. Another problem surfaces rarely where you'll get some photos that aren't in focus completely, which is another big no-no for a site like this I feel. I'd love for those to just be taken out.
Navigation needs work.
It gets the job done, but it's very simple. The update log is all text on the left side of the screen, and takes a lot of scrolling. The main part of the page is basically a models index, which is good to have, but I think they could do more. I'd first add a basic photos and videos section just to see everything in order, in one place. Second, move the models index to another page and let you sort it by name, date, popularity, etc. As the site grows, I think a category selection or advanced search would help. Let me find all the scenes with blondes, small boobs, and at least topless, for instance.
Pictures could be larger.
Again, for being a photography site, I just expect a little more out of them. The 1280x853 images you see here look pretty nice, but why not offer them in a larger size? Hell, why not offer them in multiple sizes? I think the quality warrants it, and some people out there definitely won't be satisfied with the smaller pics here.
They used to always offer zip files for the photo galleries, but that stopped a while back. I have no idea why, but they need to return in my opinion.
There are some girls here who don't do nudity, which may annoy some (how bad did you want to see her tits!). To be fair, the photographer is currently asking the members what they think about this, as he can get hotter girls this way. I'd personally vote for a topless minimum, or if not, at least offer a way to filter them out.
The design here is quite simple and plain, and doesn't look that great. It is simple at least, and not too cluttered, but it could be jazzed up a bit and still keep those qualities.
There are definitely less videos overall than there are photos; I'd look for a more 50/50 split going forward.
It's so close to being a really good site, but there are a few small issues.
I really want to like Cosmid here, as it's done pretty well all around. For some reason, I can't quite get over the edge to really fall in love with the site though. On the positives, the quality is decent, the girls are great, the updates come daily, and I'd say the content is unique in terms of how the pictures turn out. On the other hand, the site is quite simple, I feel they could do even more with the quality, and a few key options are missing. I think if they continue to grow, things could look good here long-term. The girls are a huge bonus with how the look, and the little things can be tweaked in time.
Yes, should work.
