Using big photographs in a web design, either as the background or part of the content, is a great way to easily set the overall mood of a site.

That’s why most site’s that you see making use of big images have an overall minimal style when it comes to the other design elements. For today’s inspiration, we’ve gathered a collection of sites that are excellent examples of web designs with big photography.
