    Works fine for me. Safari 1.3 (v312) on Mac OS X 10.3.9.

    Nice images. I like the sparser ones best.

    Ok on XP and IE, but I couldn't bring myself to look at the "plastic" gallery.

    Very nice photogrphy indeed. But for me (Firefox 1.0.7 WinXP, 1024x768 32 bits) the entry page gets a scrollbar, because it's maybe 20px too big.

    Excellent site Leon. Many could (should) take a lesson from you in elegant simplicity!

    Worked fine for me on XP I.E. and I did look at the plastic lens pics and liked them!

    The site worked fine for me, too - XP, Firefox 1.07.

    I looked through the glass lens pics, then had a problem getting back to the glass/plastic index page to look through the plastic lens pics. Maybe add a link on the final photo page of each set to make continuing to the other set a bit easier? Perhaps I noticed it because I'm struggling with routing my new site design myself.

    Looks really nice Leon, and everything I tried worked (but I am at work - XP, IE 6.02).

    Will give it go from home tonight, dialup - top speed 28.8. Agree with the other comments about the site elagance and simplicity. Only thing I noticed was on the first page, here all I saw was the photo, then scrolled down and found your name..thought maybe having your name up a bit higher might make it easier for people to see...but it's your site, so that might be why it is like that.

    Very impressed with the layout and design you have done.

    I could find no problems and enjoyed looking at your photographs. Nice work on the site and the photographs.

    Nice clean design.
    At 1024x768 the pages run off the bottom of the browser. I have to scroll down a bit to see what is at the bottom of the pages.

    One code change suggested...

    You might want to change the title code line, currently <title>index</title>, to reflect the name of your site <title>Leon Taylor Photography</title>. This helps when others are first visiting because it puts your site name at the top of their browser window. It also helps when bookmarking your site.
