I must be the classic "non-standard" user, nonetheless... Think of me as one of the idiots that makes idiot proofing so hard.
If you go to the front page, hold your mouse over the "gallery" button, you get a drop down. If you follow a link, say sunsets, you get a layout with the photo to the right and the menu options to the left. I think that works well.
However, if you *click* Gallery rather than *mouse over and select* gallery, you end up with the menu options and logo centered and at the top. That means that even on a 1900x1200 screen, the images are half-way down the page and you need to scroll down to see them. Not very convenient for the user.
As to the black box, it might work if it was smaller. Much, much smaller. The idea of translucent sounds good, though I suppose the proof would be in the pudding.
So, if people do what is expected, I think it looks nice. However, if they do as I did and click rather than mouse over, the experience is at least somewhat diminished.
Oh, and nice photos by the way.
