 > @mapk has done an impressive job addressing most of the feedback, so let
 me first say thanks for the hard work and being open to changes.

 Thank you.
 > > I want to explore every possible solution within a single page view,
 so please review the mockups below.
 > This, to me, is the crux of the problem. It appears we are not seeking
 the best way to present variable-height screenshots with captions. Rather
 we are seeking the best way to do so within the ''self-imposed limitations
 of a one-page layout''.

 I think it's important to note that limitations are not bad.
 Read this for more insight.] We're exploring the best way within specific
 limitations, yes, but these explorations should happen nevertheless. If we
 can't find a solution that achieves what we're trying to achieve (better
 UX experience, clearly organized content and hierarchy, visual declutter
 and friendlier usability, etc.) then we're doing it wrong. :)
 > I understand this was the task assigned at last week's meeting, and
 again I appreciate @mapk's work. It's a step forward for this slider
 approach, but I remain unconvinced that it's a step in the right

 This is good feedback, thanks! @jb510 has also given some great feedback
 to consider on this last round of mockups. The comments about this not
 being a marketplace are surprising, but also well thought out, causing me
 to reconsider some of the other design choices made (ie. display banner).
 I really appreciate these challenges!
