First, the feature, often referred to as “skinnery,” is definitely going to be a love-hate thing. For those that do not like the plain color themes of Live Tiles, making the tiles part of the picture itself is going to be an appealing option.
As for these photos, it would be nice if there was an accompanying video to see these tiles in action. Of course, the fact that they are all pretty much exactly the same picture and they are showing up on a Lumia 520 raises our doubts a bit as well. Even if it is the work of a talented artist, it is not a bad rendering of what it could look like.
Taking that aside, what do you think of being able to use the Live Tiles and start screen as the mosaic for the picture of your choice?
