looks great so far peanut - you'll be running into the same hangup as everynody else - attention span. seems nobody can change it but people are in a hurry. most people give websites 3 seconds. by the time 7 seconds has gone by, if a page hasn't fully opened or caught their interest, they've sailed away into cyberspace to explore more friendly corner of it.
here comes your pictures. even though superb, they're 4 times the size of my screen and i hafta shut everything else down to get one loaded in 4 minutes. i checked one and it needed 438,000 bytes - with practice you can compress a screen-sized jpg into about 70,000 bytes. i think my website background takes under 4,000 bytes. that's time to viewers. fun stuff but ticklish.
oh, (and you'll believe this in a month) no need to be in a rush to perfect anything - it takes about a month to throw away the others and get your intro page to say what you want. keep a copy of the orginals tho, they're fun. :)
