I like some of the effects you have implemented, like the gradient background ill have to check out your code to see how you did that. probably dhtml i imagine... the site is artistic in its own way. and you definately have some cool and artistic pictures there :-)

however, i didnt like having to scroll way over to the right as well as up and down too. the scroll bars are very hard to see i thought at first there were none but then upon close examination realized they were just light and hard to see...

I love your site, and most of the other versions as well. My fav tho is the
one wehre you used all those little figurines...that was excellent.

As for the current one, the only thing that REALLY bothers me is that it
scrolls up when I click a thumb! And then I gotta scroll back down to
where I was...You should really fix that.

The side-to-side scrolling doesn't bother me at all. It's different and no
one says sites have to scroll up and down to be good. Cool idea.

The colors are cool, because I think it brings more attention to your work
and photos rather than steal it all away. Your work is the centerpiece of
your site and this color scheme and lack of extras in the design really
bring it to the forefront.

yes i would definatly reduce the size to make it fit at least 1024x768. Most ppl hate to scroll side ways. You hade some nice photos there.

Looks like you took their advice and reduced it enough to be viewed on all screen resolutions. But the pictures are HUGE. Your photo gallery took a long time to load, but I guess that's not your problem. I think you've done a good job with it.

Dude,
Your site takes a seriously long time to load. Even with broadband.
I fact I got IE timeouts 4 times. It is broken?

Ooo very nice, I like the content and the basic parts of the layout but I do not like frames in frames (All those scrollbars are just confusing). I suggest not making the navigation menu a different frame.

it's pretty alright... too much flash makes loading boring. try to limit a lot of frames so i wouldn't sit here waiting for anything to come up. but it's alright.

I really liked your images on the site and everything loaded very fast for me (i'm on cable connection).

The right graphics on any site can make or break the site i believe and i think your background image alone stands out and fits the site very well

fast loading, good looking, a great site.

One thing though, I'm using 128*1024 screen res and on that resolution the text is hard to read. In your photo section, the text is a bit blurry as well.

Just thought I'd mention this.

kind regards
Tisse
