I went freelance...

Hey guys,

I decided to go freelance and would like to get some feedback on my site and the work I have chosen to go on the site.

Thanks for looking and I look forward to hearing you comment.

Nice. Good luck.

I like the interface quite a bit. Can't say about the work you have chosen. What are you after as far as garnering work, I mean type?

Im usually not a huge fan of flash sites, but this is a bit better integrated...only had the chance to peek through a few samples, and your work seems well done.

good luck and congrats

Like above, the site design is nice and well set out. The work looks good, with clear examples. BUT, what is your site promoting? From your site I have no idea if the pictures are yours, what they are for, what they have had done, what you can do, who you are or anything like that. Basically your site needs some content and description.

The site is nicely done. The "before and after" buttons (lower left corner of the gallery photos) should probably be a bit more visible.

Hi Everyone and thanks for the comments.

I would like to continue retouching, and mostly of the work is heavy photo-composition to build on a specific concept. Even better than doing this type of retouching, would being able to shoot the pieces myelf for assembly.

BUT, what is your site promoting?......
Under each image is a very small description of what was done. I desperately need to come up with some way of showing all of the pieces used to assemble the final piece of art. Im hesitant to do this though cause it then MAKES the user watch the animation, or do you not see that as being a problem?

I was going to seperate the work into strictly retouched section and a photographed and retouched section to help differentiate between the 2. Im reting to avoid the about us at the moment, mainly because most people I have spoken to thought the work should be "showcased" and not "sold" with a lot of copy. Any thoughts?

I decided to go with the flash site to keep the work protected, I know there are tricks to keep them in the HTML, but nothing I saw was full proof, even in flash.

Thanks for the help and comments, keep em coming...
