    Clients can be so difficult to work with at times. I like the website though. Good work.

    Nice and simple.

    The top header is shrunk down for me and doesn't look that great ... looks fine full screened but I never browse in a full screen window.

    I like it, looks inviting.

    Only problem I see is with your navagation, you have spaces that are linked after the words like

    Home | Instruments |

    So there is a space after that is underlined, only when hovered.



    And how did you integrate Google Maps like that? I need to do something like that as well.

    Physically resize your images, don't do it in the img tag... it distorts the images and is a huge pet peeve of mine.

    And like said before - needs consistency with the image sizes on the right.

    try using something like Lightbox JS for the images... just linking to a plain image is kind of lame.

    Site looks great. One thing I do on sites that end up scrolling vertically on any pages at all is to add some buffer to the layout so that it forces a scrollbar on all pages. This way the page doesn't appear to shift from page to page. I know it's silly but it's just something that annoys me. I'm sure others will find it ridiculous.

    html {height:100%}
    body {min-height:101%}

    I like it over all but I think the main page is a little busy (in particular the footer seems to clash a little with that main image).

    I know the client decided on the main image, just giving my opinion though.

    +1 for the header image being stretched.

    awesome, thanks for the comments. I think i may take the time to get those images be the same size. I thought about it, but decided against it since im getting payed so little.

    Thanks for noticing the spaces in the links, ill fix that as well.

    And thats an interesting approach to fixing the scrollbar shift problem. Theres another site that im working on that could definitely use that.
