    4. Ciriljazbec Photography

    My first impression of this site was: “Wow! Impressive photos!”. Ciriljazbec definitely knows how to sell his skills by featuring a series of full size (and high resolution) images on the homepage.


    When you are viewing the photos, it puts the main focus on the image and hide everything else. Moving the mouse around allows you to scroll the image.


    On the right side of the navigation bar, you have the options to toggle: Slideshow on/off, Fit in/out, and Move Photo on/off.


    5. Nil

    Another nice loading animation.


    The photo thumbnails are scattered out randomly. Click on the thumbnails to view the larger photo. The photos you’ve viewed are tinted with pink color.

    Yet another boring homepage.
