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!
