Heeey! Haven’t we already posted this in the past? Seem so, apparently someone was so influenced by Rob Gonsalves’sShips and Arches” illusion that he decided to make a homage to the artist! Or perhaps it was Rob himself who did it! Anyone willing to share more information? Anyway, the picture is different, yet the assignment is still the same – try to isolate the point where the aqueduct turns into ship, and vice-versa!

    Aqueduct?? I don’t think so!
    Nice illusion though! And I don’t think there’s one particular point where you can say one ends and the other begins – they blend into each other.

    • Marcie

      Yeah, not an aqueduct! If it were, that car could go for an unexpected swim. Nice work, though.

  • NeatNit

    The effect here is really horrible. Doesn’t work at all.

    Regardless, this person has some great drawing skills. :)

    • AmetuerAspirant

      it’s not an “effect” it’s a transformation, you need to know these things before posting comments.

    • Enn

      besides the idiot who replied you that the “transformation” is not a effect.. you are right. the limit its CLEARLY VISIBLE unlike most of comments say.

      from right to left.- Ships on right has no such thing similar to a bridge.

      Cant see the “spot” where the ships became archs?
      f off there are 8 archs and 8 ships (oh surprise=)

  • Rick

    3rd or 5th ship depending on ur point of “view”

  • Gabbi

    Looks like the eighth arch from the left is the first with some sails in it, but it blends nicely. I like it :)

    It’s a very inviting image.

  • Robert

    it´s well done. And some ships are coming, some are leaving, but all with full wind in the sails.
    I like it.

  • vicly

    This is lovely, but I wanted to point out that it is a viaduct, not an aquaduct – it has a road on it, not a canal. Hope you don’t mind me mentioning that.

  • Lee

    Great Picture – is it where the shadow of the bridge stops?

  • rahul rai

    Its b/w 8th and 9th pillar counted from left

  • moon

    how can a bridge look like the sea.

  • Hypersapien
  • Care Bear

    That must have been a challenge for the engineers who built it.

    • Absd

      Hey dude they didn’t make it.

  • eee eef gee

    That car better turn around…..

    Beautiful Illusion by the way :)

  • Vinny

    There is an illusion within the illusion. You may notice that the center-most ship, though traveling in the same direction as the ship closest to the viewer, has it’s sails billowed in an opposite direction and as such would be traveling toward the viewer.

    This was indeed painted by artist Rob Gonsalves. It is one of his newer works. It is similar to his “Ships and Arches” painting which is actually titled “The Sun Sets Sail”.

  • luzesita

    like!! jejeje

  • Zenbot

    Well, technically I think it’s a painting, not a viaduct or an aqueduct. Those of you espousing the aqueduct faux pas should remember, the only thing more annoying than the misuse of the word “ironic” is the guy who points out its misuse. It’s exactly the same thing here. Kudos to everyone and their ability to read. You are all making the world so much better. I like the painting, and yes, it does almost seem seamless.

  • Ann

    9th arch. You can tell because the sails connect to the bottom of the boat,the other arches prior to #9 do not.

  • Taylor
