    Great photos!
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    VERY nice photos. I especially like the way you crop your photos - some really benefit from that panorama aspect.

    I looked at the photos of China (my service provider slows me down after a bit, and it was all I could see with a reasonable wait) and they are wonderful. I agree with the others who said it is slow to load, but my main concern is that (on my screen at least), most of the "square" photos appear to go offscreen - I'm never sure I'm looking at the whole image. The website design is simple and effective, and as I said the China pics at least are great.

    Very slow load, both initially for the site and later for individual pictures, through my medium-speed DSL line. Also, having the pictures bleed all the way to the edge of the window is disconcerting - hard to escape the feeling that something is being cropped. (Is it?)

    I thought the menus and thumbnails were distracting until I discovered that you can make them go away by moving the cursor out of the window. Very nice!

    Thanks for sharing - I'll be heading back for another look!

    Yup, seems to be a common refrain -- slow to load, although sometimes it's OK at my end. Hard to say...as for the picture bleed, you're getting the whole deal.

    Easiest way is to keep the cursor off screen and use the arrow keys to navigate. I had to learn that by trial and error...

    You might want to put the "keep the cursor off screen and use the arrow keys to navigate" tip somewhere prominent.

    In addition, it would be great if clicking on to the opening photo/screen would open up the menu (which itself isn't really easy to locate).

    The photography? wonderful!

    Colin: You photos are wonderful. I particularly liked the B/W China and color ones. Well the others are great too. They are all rich, deep and meaningful. I also noticed the slow load although mine wasn't that bad since I'm running about 3-4 MB. When I checked your photos, they are very large for the web. You might be able to reduce the size and never notice since monitors have a lot less pixels horizontally and vertically then you have on each of your photos. Anyway the wait between shots gives one time to enjoy and absorb them even more. Alan.

    I agree.

    Note how much down-scaling is required to fit on to my (admittedly old fashioned) 1280 x 1024 monitor. You would be better controlling that from your end.
