    I checked out the first one, and that's one big-ass intro
    There's a typo in the intro: it says "compAtative" prices or something...

    First one "Intro is awesome, if you made the flash, WOW !, second and third website suck IMO....not a professional font, colors kinda messed up, but thats just my taste !

    1st one is good though

    hmmm your design style seems to defer greatly between each page

    site 1) Intro is impressive but not needed - perhaps giving people the choise? load the main page first and then have a link to 'showreel' or something that way people can view it if they want to without forcing upon them at the start.
    The main page layout is good easy to navigate but the
    Place your product news here or advertise a special service or product...(more)
    kinda gives away fact you used a premade template

    Also the flash animation on the main page makes the file size huge - why not place a simple static image there instead?

    2) I take it on the second site you ahve used some kind of shopping cart software? It works ok but doesn't look that great kinda bare.....plus i think some pictures of the products wouldn't go amiss - let people see what they are buying as well as a description of each item - maybe some customer reviews? feedback?
    take a look at some other online stores for ideas (http://www.amazon.com | http://www.thinkgeek.com | http://www.iwantoneofthose.co.uk)

    3) The use of typography seems wrong - it isn't eye catching enough and is difficult to read. Also the background graphic seems a little.....kiddie like.
    Once again i suggest looking at other sites for inspiration - remember these other sites are your (your clients) competitors - if they look better than your site then people are more likely to book with them than with your client (http://www.caravan-sitefinder.co.uk/ | http://www.bookdirectly.co.uk/ | http://www.parkdeanholidays.co.uk/ )

    my advice is to learn photoshop - it is becoming as much a tool of the webdesigner as the digital artist. Teamed with imageready you can make some fantastic looking websites without relying upon premade templates

    First site was awesome, like said before. The second one...well... reminds me of p0rno no offense but it does. At least change the colors. The last was okay but I personally think you depended to much on pictures to do the site. You can do the same with just plain text and a backgorund pic. On dail up it tends to be noticable but I know not on anything above. Oh well, my opinion.

    http://www.microsoft.com

    They don't come much more obscene than that

    Now, to business...........

    The second site...........red and yellow might be fine for the Spanish flag, but not for a website.......it makes it look amateur. If those are the colours, try a paler yellow/deeper (claret) red?

    At the very least I would consider using hollow, bordered letters with a colour fill...........the "half-price" is pretty indistinct?

    In the product listing..............

    "Accessories"
    "Jewellery"

    I would strongly recommend running a spell check and having someone look at your stuff (proof reader?) before submitting it to the client.

    Leeds? bleh!...........a "Wezzie", and not a particularly good one at that! (that's local humour folks)

    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
