    I launched my new website today (Mike Lemovitz Photography), and since all of my computers are Macs, I thought it'd be good to find out if people using other systems are able to view my site properly, as I went with a non-standard design (horizontal scroller).

    Please check out the site and let me know what you think, but also, if you guys could answer the following it'd be appreciated.

    1) What browser are you using? Version?
    2) What is your screen's resolution?
    3) Were you able to navigate the site intuitively?
    4) Did the site look right? ;) If not, what's wrong?
    5) Any issues otherwise?
    6) Any clunker photos that you feel should be removed?

    Thanks, guys!
    Mike

    Alright mate - that is some good work.

    I am using Google Chrome BETA 4.0.249 and it works fine.

    One thing I noticed is your SEO is not set up:

    Have a look at optimising your site for search engines. But apart from that I think it's good.

    Clean, fresh, good navigation, everything is accessible. V.v. impressed.

    i can view it just fine in :


    1) What browser are you using? Version? Mozilla Firefox
    2) What is your screen's resolution?1366x768
    3) Were you able to navigate the site intuitively?Yes
    4) Did the site look right? ;-) If not, what's wrong? The width is almost 3 times the size of my screen.. not sure if that was intended but its something i may possibly close the page because of. (but thats just me) maybe a smaller version with zoomable images?
    5) Any issues otherwise? no
    6) Any clunker photos that you feel should be removed? all good

    here is what i see.

    Yeah, haven't gotten around to it yet. I actually specialize in SEO/internet marketing by trade, so that's on the agenda for today.

    It's designed to do this, as I wanted something non-standard. Too different for the average viewer?

    No. I think side-scrolling for photographic portfolios is the way forward. :thumbup:

    Is your resolution a standard resolution? I had been hoping to avoid the vertical scrollbar on most systems.

    I'm at work, IE8. Works fine. The horiz scroll really works well there, I usually leave the page or get frustrated if I have to scroll sideways, not this time!
