First website, recently finished. Still need to add more photos and perhaps categories. But let me know what you all think. . .

no, you most certainly do not need music....and if you do add it, please don't have it auto play.

I like the layout, but I'd use a different font for your navigation. The lightbox effect seems slow loading as well.

No definitely no music..if you do make sure you can turn it off and it doesn't autoplay. I like websites with jazzy tunes on them, like loops of elevator music type stuff - i think that'd work well with yours too. Not full blown country songs (shudder)

website rocks, I love it. Excellent..only thing I would critique is the info section (seems too cluttered, too wordy)

Also tell your developer to stop using tables!

There are far more economical methods of achieving navigation/rollovers such as CSS and Lists.

Site looks fine just lacks that 'wow' factor. I'd also put some text on your home page to give some information about yourself and to engage the visitor. Also feedback on the images would be nice, as what do they mean?

Final point is your logo looks fuzzy, check the compression settings on the site engine.

I think the picture sizes might be a bit too large, but I wanted to have as much quality as possible. I've had a few people saying they're loading slowly.

interesting. first time seeing it though.

the reason i'm not keen on adding music is because it's not a flash site. i wouldn't want every time a new page opens, the music stops.
