i love the layout inside the site. but im not 2 sure bout the splash page....the picture on it is kool but it isnt really consistent with the rest of the site. you may wish to sharpen (or maybe increase the quality) on the nav buttons and where it says "nav:" Also maybe align the whole thing in the center. still as i said the layout, once past the splash, is great and original. nice work.

i like your site dood niiice the colours are great, but the text is a little hard to see on the background of the car, only in certain places (where the background goes dark)

why not just change the text colour would suit the colour scheme a little bit too :) just my 2 cents :)

Cool! Very "Modern Webbish"!

I see the comment about the splash, but I can also see why you want to keep it... maybe tie a little orange into it?

One topic of concern, though: on the portfolio page, I KNOW there's a scrollbar, but I can't SEE one. Intentional? You can still be subtle without making it invisible.

So you're in the NY/NJ area? I'm guessing by your client sites. Good to know I'm not the only one! haha

Ya man.  I hated your old site blunted, but must say.  I'm impressed.  You should make the splash page so it's centered and no scroll bar.  The inside page was nice, but once again, I didn't like to scroll down before I saw the links.  Also the links would be cool if the word(made of lights it looks like) glowed.

Splash pages are the devil. It's not needed. lose it.

I dont like the text over the car pic. It's not friendly w/ my eyes. try a solid color for under text.

The css on the scrollbar is very confusing. I would either get rid of the iframe, and make the page span verticaly, or change the css so you can actually see the scrollbar.

eko: its not an i frame its just a regular <div> but i made it scroll. and i dont like the way scroll bars look thats why i put the scroll bar the way it is. i left the arrows so you can tell there is one.

black knot: i am going to change it to white when i get the chance. and about the news this i found one.. all i to do was delete the set color in the templete.

WebDev: yes i live in NY, Long Island to be exact.

bluecube: they are not lights they are pixels! why do you got to scroll what res you running? its ment for  1024,768

Personally I don't prefer splash pages. About 25% of avarage visitors turn around when they see a splash page. And I think that's a big number.

And about the main layout, I can't say anything else than it's not working on Opera (remember that all users don't use M$IE ;))

I see blunted, do recall though, not everyone is running your res.  You should maybe put up somthing "best viewed in ____x____ resolution.  Or make it for all of them.

ok read cube's post, omit 'use ______x______' and then you got it ;) always always always make your site for resolutions from 800x600 to 1200xwhatever (i run 1028x760)(not a flame brendan :) just sayin - lol)
