This is nice, very flashy (a word in English before Flash, yes).

But.... why is it in flash!? The only things which benefit are the intro (nice and short, good), and the gallery intro (should be shorter imho, and could lose that left-right wipe at the end) - the rest would be better in plain HTML, even the menu.

As an exercise in flash though, this is very nice, I really like the integration. B.

My basic purpose was simple-learn some flash, next time will be better.
Did you see mp3 player ? Muzyka->Posłuchaj moich kompozycji (in englisch listen my composition). What do you think about it?

I'm typically not big on a 'flash only' website... I mean, where the entire site is navigated from within the flash area. I prefer to see flash used in very quick intro's. Maybe a fancy logo. Unlike dyefade , I actually enjoyed how the photos loaded and liked the 'left-right wipe at the end' (just another opinion :)

Couldn't understand the text so I can't comment on whether or not you were getting your point across very fast... the photos are very nice.

Site looks good. Only concern about flash pages are takes too much of time to get downloaded and can loose a potential customer.

Otherwise great stie.

Hmmm i really dislike flash websites. But ignoring that, when you click on the gallery page you have to wait for all of those images to fly in before you can click anything (really annoying tbh).

By look its hard to identify that some of the Text boxes you have are actually there ... for example Poezja page.

Site takes too long (even when in browser cache) to open. Origionally i refreshed for some reason and was wondering why it wasnt working. but after 3-4 seconds it comes up. Remember that your customers / viewers are not patient people and will go somewhere else if they see a blank black page for too long.

I'll change this gallery animation soon but you don't have to wait if you press 2 times gallery button.
Thanks for advices

It looks great, but personally, i don't like the black background outside of your page. It looks too dark.

I would like to see in the Gallery a 3D Rotate option, the Images shown are great with lots of detail - as a user I would want to see as much as possible i.e. interact with the art - I think this could be done using a 3D rotate function. Also need crisper Macro Photography of the images as they seem to lose detail on the close ups

Also to get back to an image I had to click gallery text which I didn't like, I automatically went to the top photo menu, IMO people will always click Photos rather than Text, could you possible link the top photos to open the image?

Hope this makes sense

One of the big negative aspects of flash is that your content is not getting indexed by the search engines.

But if your goal was the learn flash, this might be a moot point, and perfectly fine.

As you suggest I made two changes:background and "back" button inside the gallery (powrót do galerii).
What do you think it's better now ?

As far as I know, flash sites can't be indexed well in Google. Google can't recognize flash text.

I agree with having a html site rather than a flash site. The flash animations take a long time to get through. However, I really like your models. Also, don't forget to title your pages.

Flash has advatage and disadvantage. I see that you are not follower of this environment. In my opinion if webiste's making for content there's no need to use Flash but from other hand we can create really interesting graphic interface. Everything depends from point of viewing.

Gogole is starting to index certain flash elements.
Here is an exceprt from a Google search:

[FLASH] http://www.XXXXX.com/web.asp http://www.XXXXX.com ...File Format: Shockwave Flash
http://www.XXXXX.com/web.asp · http://www.XXXXX.com/video.asp · http://www.XXXXX.com/print.asp · http://wwwXXXXX.com/resume.asp.
http://www.XXXXX.com/flash/main.swf - Similar pages

You are still much better of with traditional html for SEO though.

Your first attempt at flash is probably better than I can do, however the speed in which it loads and siplays gallery images really needs to be picked up.
