Tribute page to Cartography feedback request


Altough my tribute page looks just tolerable in my opinion, I found making it as extremely exciting and creative.
I would be grateful for any feedback. Here’s my page: Tribute to cartography

I had the problem with fitting content into containers. For example, I don’t know how to set the height of right and left columns to be good looking on different screen sizes? It looks ok for 24" but I checked it on my other 19" screen and text does not fit in it. See how it looks:

I couldn’t also find an answer for the question - how to make the text appearing on images to be centered?

Thanks in advance and best regards.
