Color wise I found them over saturated.

As said before over saturated and the color temperature needs correcting.

looked over a lot of your photos. 1 big problem will be when you go to print. you will not see any details because of all the darkness in them. from 7 feet away they will be just black blobs spots. not something a lot of people will want to be drawing into to look at closer.

hm due to saturation/color temp: who said that technically everything needs to be done like "officially from books"? but i agree that is a matter of taste..

printing-wise: running a darkroom (for guys who are interested in lith prints checkout: http://www.lith-art.com) and a large format printer (canon ipf 6300). to squeeze out everything off the file, they need to differ from web-files, so i am always separating the files from web- to print-publishing the old challenge: pictures on translucent(screen, slides..) vs. on paper (any physical material)..

Two more cents. Your 'before and after' homepage image features brickwork 'repair' that has excessive clone tool repetition. I'd sort that out Jacob.

I agree with the above.

Also, the 8th pic down has 2 skintones: very magenta on the face and chest, orange on the neck. It's like that in the 'before' pic. [:-s confused smiley]

Just to add to your woes, I did notice a little shadow that seemed out of place in one image (attached) and in another image the flare from the glassware seems too much (oh and I don't fancy the artfully arranged veggies )
