    I think you have a fixation with phones. :) I can think of more beautiful use of imagery than shots (or faux shots) of iPhones.

    Some of the other examples are pretty cool, though. I love that big imagery like What You Are is doing.

    You’re kidding, right? With the exception of the website Bridge2Rwanda (this site’s landing page is the only one of the bunch that has an image that is compelling enough to make me want to visit the website), all of these are been-there-done-that…yawn.
