Ok. I've included a script now, which should allow you to use the scroll wheel to move horizontally through the photos.

you can do a few things on your page with a conditional if statement:
<style type="text/css">@import "IE7plus.css";</style>
<!--[If lt IE7]> <style type="text/css">@import "IE6.css";</style> <![endif]-->
this will read the first style sheet and use everything there, and then if the browser type is less than ie 7 it will read the other stylesheet - where you only need to inlude attributes which override the first - for instance min-height on the first stylesheet is overridden with height, etc.
The other note I would add is that forcing horizontal scrolling is not a great idea - but if you size down the screen into a div, and place the images into an embedded div, you have the ability to add a move forward, back - the user can click through the images (you will need to add javascript) right and left. Just make sure that the viewing area of the page is smaller than the smallest resolution a user might be using (800px).

OK - I'm running 1280x1024 with IE 7 and see the full images already, so I assume the horizontal scroll bar won't show for me, correc?

Hii Robert
I don't want to state the obvious, but from this site I don't know what it is you do. There is no mention that this is a photographic site.....pictures are fine, but what do they relate to? Just my first thoughts. Hope it is constructive. All the best with the rest of the site!

I think it's a problem with the default settings in IE7 which doesn't allow scripts to run. I'll have to come up with a fix.

Sorry, the website is still in very early stages. I'm taking all this feedback into account as I work on an updated version.

Np - :D.... creativity is always a work in progress, getting better and better. I'm sure the end result will be very satisfying.

I use Firefox and had no problem seeing the site. I also have a large monitor and I suspect your font size could be a bit bigger, especially your contact info--old eyes, you know.

Visually, I liked the simplicity.

Where did you get that idea? Javascript runs by default in all versions of IE when the page is served from the internet (not locally w/o a warning unless you are previewing through a development server w/o changing the default security settings.)

Conditional comments are the way to go if you have something that displays funky in older browsers but well written javascript will work in IE 6+.

I think I like it. I think it would be better if we could scroll further than the end of the last picture to have it centered. The first image doesn't really match the others, a bit too contrasty to my taste. Love the pictures too. I'd add Photographer somewhere in the page.
Bleeding hearts?

Once I have a few more images up, I can categorise them so they don't look so mismatched...it's all I've got to go with at the moment.

Thanks for the critique. I'll see what I can do about it. :)

Honestly...I Hate it.
The horizontal scroll is painful
It tells me nothing about you except your name, phone number and email address, so as an "online business card" it's a total failure.
Contact you...why. For a chat?
What do you do.
Nothing relates
It's just 5 mismatched photos next to each other on a horizontal scroll bar.
Is there anything that makes me want to go back -
In a word NO!!
in two words..EMPHATICALLY NO!!

I agree! to, I think the whole idea is a mess the images need to have some kind of sense at the moment they are all over the place. Overall terrible website.
