nice job volkan.  i found a carpet pic that didn't present itself when 
clicked.  it was on the first page of the second tab.  i found the 
transparency of the enlargements distracting as well as the enlargements 
not being a uniform size.  the photos looked ok on my monitor; not too 
light, not too dark.  maybe it would be difficult to sell carpets 
without photos?

about the menu, the color purple you used makes you look at the menu 
first, which to me is both positive and negative.  positive in that you 
want people to view the site and the menu is the vehicle.  the negative 
is that it detracts from the page text.  also, i wanted to click the 
blue word "links" only to find out they weren't links at all.  i guess i 
associate the color blue with links.  on the other hand, the words 
weren't underlined as links usually are, so i should have assumed that 
the blue is used for emphasis rather than links.

cheers for a prosperous new year!
