    Inze.It truly have a brilliant picture there, its so symmetrical and crisp. Fabulous.
    I’m a fan of the heavy and visual image websites myself. They look professional, and its a brilliant way to brand yourself distinctively. LOVE all of these sites! And BEG bicycles with its vintage feel and stamp!

    I like the big image designs, but some information on how to implement these designs without killing your web page’s download speed would be most helpful. With search engines placing so much emphasis on page speed, I am worried these designs might be detrimental to my rankings…that is, without some good instruction on the dos and don’ts.
