There is still some settling in issues and more content to be added (including the Galleries)
But I would love feedback on load time and look and feel and if I have missed anything glaring !
New Image Fusion Website

Thanks

Dave

I like it, seem to load fast for me. the only thing i caught is the wording in the about the photographer seems a little off. (Dave has been on the photography ) maybe its me but this dont make sense to me. This rest looks good to me love the colors.

The studio has an established track record of consistantly producing creative and effective for business and orginizations at an attactive rate and outstanding turn around times.

should read:

ETA: Run spell check on the pages :)

Scrolling is bad on a home page, IMO. Try to fit everything on your home page into one screen that is the approximate height of most monitors :) KISS your customer :)

Your site looks great Dave! I really like the color scheme and layout. The site has a very impressive, professional look.

I did notice a few minor issues, mostly with the menus. I only perused the site briefly. This is what I noticed:

1. The menu at the top highlights the top-level items on hover, but not the sub-menu items.

2. On the "Photography Services" sub-menu, the text for the "Commercial Photography" item is cut off (viewing with Firefox 3.0.2)

3. On the left side main menu, the text (I-beam) cursor is displayed for some items.

Congratulations on a great website Dave, and best of luck!

Fixed the phrasing ... thanks
I tend to agree on principal about the front page scroll. I am going to have to play around with it to better use that real estate

Thanks

Nice site, me likes. It took a while to load everything before I finally saw anything. Maybe 8 - 10 seconds. I almost didn't wait, it was close to the threshold of my attention span.

Thanks ... It still needs to be optimized Hopefully I can get that done tomorrow

I have a FAST broadband connection and it still took 12 seconds to load the front page.

Maybe it's your server, or the volume of data, but I'd shoot for 2-3 secondfs to load your initial page.

eta: I like the look and feel of the site once I'm there.

"We know that business and commercial photography needs run the gambit from very basic to incredibly complex. "

hmmm - phrase has an odd feel to it
