I think you did a great job.
Here is why:
First of you didn’t use Flash for flash sake.
You considered design elements and have a simple interface…nothing over the top ( lately I use the little boxes or squares as you might call them as navigation elements, cause I found them the most effective so far…clients like to click on buttons and not actual text…).
I like white sites…they work well for photography.
Overall I didn’t have to go fish much (which I am sometimes guilty of in my creations…I just cannot help but make it hard or people to find things…hahaha).
I am sorry I am not judging the Flash skill very much, but for me design and purpose comes first and I believe you have fulfilled both aspects. Its not always good to judge a creation apart from its purpose.
