    I like the logo.

    That being said, I think your site's colors should match the logo. Namely, I don't think the red and yellow colors really go with the layout - they're too bold.

    If I were you, I would change the red to the lighter shade of blue in your logo, and then pick a less-bold yellow color for the yellow areas. I think that would give a better impact.

    Logo is nice. Simple and easy to read.

    The blues work well, but red is not a good navigation colour. It strikes "warning" into people. Try a softer pastel shade like light blue.

    Couple of issues in general:

    1. With the logo, the text is easy to read but it is also a bit blocky. Just not a fan of the text. Personal choice really
    2. The username in the top right corner. Try sectioning that off, put their username as a link, and link it to a profile page of that user. It is very plain with that stuff just sitting there
    3. That red/brown on yellow color could be changed. It is making the black text very very hard to read, and it doesn't look good. Try a lighter color.
    4. Make the "Post New Auction", "Search Auctions", and "Update Information", into images that look stylish

    That green on your body might be a concern in the contrast department. Remember not everyone that visits your site can see color.

    Dear God. What is it like in your funny little brains? It must be so boring.

    I quite like the colours chosen, but the black text in the dark red bars are difficult to see.

    Perhaps change it to white as you have done with the text displayed over blue.
