I like the look and feel, but there's one thing bugging me with the background. Is the unaligned change in in the background intentional (see attached image)

1) You're using tables and divs - just use divs.

Very sneaky - didn't realise you were using Joomla!. :o
EDIT: Once you've done, you might want to validate everything - would be slightly ironic :)

I like the glossiness. Mootools does wonders doesn't it? I could recognize that you used mootools the instance I clicked the skip to content link! That is one of the best mootools implementations that I have seen yet. I love the two arrows that hide the boxes, though I would make it more obvious as to what they do and where they are.
I would never have realized it was Joomla if the above poster hadn't mentioned it. Good job with that. You couldn't tell without looking at the code. I had no idea that someone could pull that off with Joomla. I might have to take a look at Joomla again...

its just a template
I was going to write that I liked the design but looked a bit 'template-like' .... then I scrolled down and saw you post.
Some friendly advice to the OP - I would try and have your own site originally designed if you are selling yourself as a web "designer" - otherwise maybe change your pitch to 'Joomla implementation' or something like that. Nothing wrong with being an expert at implementing CMS. Just make sure you represent yourself honestly.

Thus lying to the MR Community and breaking the TOU set by neojoomla.com. My guess is you won't be able to fix those things. You should seriously think about what your target audience is, and if you're selling web design services..
No point carrying on - you see where I'm going.
