    Slick site, but after a few minutes, this horrific electronica-style song came on and just wouldn't end. Probably not a good idea to have a 12-minute-long irritating nnnga-nnnga-nnnga-nnnga song on your site, depending on your expected demographic, I guess.

    The first couple of songs that came on were fine.

    Songs tend to be a no-no. I was listening to other music and it slowed the website a little (for instance). Also, make sure you have rights to use the songs - rights tend to be costly and have a few parties involved.

    I generally leave a site that has music. I'm really not a big fan of flash websites either. I guess I'm old!

    If you want to be found on the web, you really need to edit your <title> tag. Since you have a 100% flash site, having a good title and description tags are very important. Having your location and some of your specialties on your title tag is very important.

    If you don't care about SEO, then desregard this post!

    Nice, I love the size of the images and the music doesn't bother me since i always just mute it when I go to a site with music. The only thing for me is I didn't see the gallery menu right away. Since there was some animation on the main image I kept looking at that thinking a menu would appear, then started clicking on it and nothing happened. Finally I saw the gallery menu in the corner. Clients might miss it and move on, something to think about.

    I also waited for a "menu" to appear from behind one of the sliding blur columns that were moving around in the main image.

    Actually, that would have been smooth if the different menu choices slid out from behind the panels as they moved around the image.

    I'll have to second this . . . I did the same as above, but I actually left the site and came back later to try it again, then I saw the menu at top left. Consider making the menu more accessible.

    Slick and well put together. I would reconsider using the word "pictures".

    U think i should use "photography" instead? I do both video and photography so pictures kind of fits both.

    UPDATE: Btw, I have adjusted the menu so it shows up when you first load the site then as you click through the site it auto-hides. SHould help people find it for the first time. I also have the music paused on startup and if people want they can play it.
