Generally quite nice. I only looked at the intro and the first page (id2.html?), then a brief tour of the site.

Comments:
the blue letters animated to move in from the left and give your site and company name - too busy for my taste, too much motion/commotion. The red (fade in?) was good.

when I click the image (Enter Here) - it goes to a still of the image. Made me feel I did something wrong. A second click took me to id2.html I use IE 6.029

The blue text with your company name is too small and too busy for me to read. I have VERY poor eyesight, but even so - seems to me it should be bigger and cleaner. Layout's generally good insofar as I can judge. I'd recommend you switch to a sans serif font.

You might seriously consider switching away from a black background too, to improve the letter/background contrast. And I think having the pictures run against the black background without some sort of border (gray frame?) makes it look less effective.

I personally hate animated butterflies - one of our biology profs loads his site with them and to me it just screams "amateur". (But then again I kick puppies and have the heart of a small child - in a drawer in my desk. )

Good to see your stuff. I particularly like that wall (?) at night with the palms - and that just-a-touch decadent-looking pond.

Hello Tony,

I took a look at your intro and your site, and I would be happy to critique for you. Personally, I feel that a web site is a tool, and as a tool, it can range from "effective" to "ineffective" for a particular audience that you are targeting and for a particular "image" that you are trying to project. So before I critique... who is your target audience, and what type of image of yourself (or your company) are you trying to project? With that information, I can tell you if your site is (in my opinion only) effective or not.

-David
