    Many are very beautiful, but I think sometimes the full screen pictures have a detrimental effect on clear, consistent navigation.

      I agree with you on that mate! Sometimes full screen pictures would definitely affect the consistency and clearness of the navigation.

      I guess big picture websites are best to balance minimal design. Some can even use it for e-commerce websites too.

      It is probably up to the UX/UI designer to make sure that big images on a website does not in any way obstruct the experience of the user, the selling point of the product and service of the website and message that needs to be delivered by the website.

      Also designers should keep in mind to make sure that the images are properly optimized for the web and not make the website speed slower.
