I'l have a go at pointing out a couple of things that I notice.
Top pic1:- Far too much dead space at the top of the page. Add a banner and get some text up there rather than half way down the page.
I'm not convinced by the choice of pic. Maybe for a road digger company or a dirt bike route to the start of a race but I don't understand the meaning. Just looks like a man made ditch to me.
The small chap leave's some nice space above and to left of its head for text and header. So same as above use the dead space at the top of the page. A better pic though.
The menu's are easy to read.
I'm not sure about the name and it's meaning WTL. Gives the impression to me of aimlessly wandering about doing nothing in particular. While there is nothing wrong with enjoying life doing nothing specific I'm not sure I'd advertise the fact as hard working folk sometimes object to supporting someone they consider to be not taking life seriously enough. This may not matter to you, depends where your heading.:dunno
Hope thats a bit of a help.
I await version II WTL with a touch of FLASH to animate your wee rat.:rofl

Is this going to be a smugmug page? What happens when the browser is larger than the background image? What about when the browser is smaller than the background image? It's kind of busy, but quite interesting. I'd like to see it after you build it.

I agree with the dead space at the top of #1, and #2. It kills it. i was waiting for it to load, and felt bored on a T1 line... (Granted only a second or two of bordom...)
#3 is good, but I'm wondering about the browsers that load your page smaller, or bigger than the image.
Are you considering Flash, or just HTML/CSS. It could be really really cool in flash, depending on all of the transitions. And who do you expect to be viewing it. Will the users have the bandwidth, or will they feel somewhat bored as the background loads, and the content isn't there yet...
