I find it amazing how much meaning a blurry photo can carry. In this example of great website design, the photo gives the homepage a ton of life and style. Rendered in an almost Impressionist aesthetic, the smudgy image of bright Chinese dragons obviously represents the brand for this Asian restaurant in Australia. I also really love the clarity and simplicity of the website design overall: super clean, easy to navigate, and stylish enough that you feel like this is someplace special to visit.
