Smile Would appreciate some feedback on Site Design

http://www.imahosting.com/ant/home/

I decided to try something I've never experimented with before and I have to say this is the only design I have made that I'm quite proud of despite my mates saying "It's too gothy". I like the shape it holds on the page and the emotion the colours bring, overall I'm quite pleased.

I'm not entirely sure what I'm asking, I guess just some constructive comments about what could make the graphical or technical side 'better'. I'm not that bothered about if it validates through some W3 thing however I'd be interested to know if it all aligns correctly in your browsers particulary MacIE.

Looking nice, though even on DSL the pics took quite a while to load. Maybe it's just my provider right now, though.

Indeed though I'm using iFrames so they only have to load once.

Make the photos open to the size of the picture. You don't really want there to be scrollbars unless there has to be. And make it so that clicking on an open picture closes the window. (left-click only)

What browser are you using Kali?
In IE they open to the exact size of the pic without any toolbars/scrollers.

Opera 7
