i was playing around a bit in layouting/photoshop trying to make a solid business layout for a project of mine...

... so could you rate a litte splash page (just the design, i will opt the code to valid html/css once i've got time)

Though it is clean it suffers from 'mystery meat navigation'. By not displaying the links outright you are adding another step for the user to take, ....actually quite a few since they have no idea which block will take them where.

Other than that I like it. But I would not put it live with the navigation like that.

Yeah, this is very true.

Maybe make the black box on each picture permanent, but crank the opacity, so that it is readable, but doesn't protrude on the image. Then, when the user mouses over, it gets darker.

It's okay. I'm not advocating web 2.0 and vector graphics, but your use of those stock photos seem very dated to me as well.

Looks nice, but it needs "real" text, nut just pictures of text. This becomes very inconvenient for blind visitors and will also hurt your search engine rating since it won't pick up anything text.

The images could also use a tiny bit of something to make them cry out to users that they are clickable. I also kind of agree with others about not forcing the navigation to be explored. Overall it's nice professional look.
