    I like it, its basic but does the job well.

    How much did it cost you?

    Have you gotten a good response from it?

    It's a common mistake to use high quality pics directly downloaded from your camera. I only clicked on one of them and it was a 1.9mb file. Even on my high speed connection it took several seconds to load (imagine someone using dialup or low wireless signal) . Use an imaging program to reduce the number of pixels. Don't worry about losing quality. You'll still have a great image at 50kb and it will load instantly.

    I use http://picasa.google.com/ free and easy never hurt anyone.

    SLO-o-o-oW LOADING. I have a 2MB DSL line and your site loaded slowly. Right on Jake Wolf.
    The site tells me lots about YOU and not so much what you can do for ME - the homeowner/property owner. (I'm working on that problem for my own site.)

    I really like your company name. Took me a second read to figure out what the heck your 10-E was! very clever - and most importantly memorable. I suggest getting 10e.com (probably taken, since it's short) or 10elc.com, that rhymes. Good luck!

    It looks good but I don't like the "Junk Removel" that name should be changed.

    yeah, "brush & debris removal" might sound more friendly
