Michelle Pisano submitted this awesome Tree Illusion few days ago. I don’t have to describe the illusion, since you are not dumb, and have eyes to see the image below. How it works is also clear. Still an awesome capture! Good job Michelle. This text made me think… I know blind people are able to use the internet with a help from technology and accessories specially made for them, but did you ever think how hard for them must be in everyday life? Not only they can’t see optical illusions, but so many things we take for granted are unreachable for them. When I think about stuff like this, it makes me grateful to God (or some higher force that is responsible for who I am) for my health.

Ignore my spiritual thoughts and care for disabled. If all this nerves you, you should watch this Dennis Leary stand-up comedy show. It has to be the funniest stand-up ever! I’m just not sure how sky didn’t open, and lightning struck him, after things he said. If you don’t know the guy, he’s the sick one (Tommy) from NYFD Rescue Me. After you watched his angry stand-up, please share your thoughts :)

    idk if it is just the light but the bottom half looks like it has a darker color bark then the top.

    Great illusion, but you mean Dennis Leary, not David Leary. Very different actors.

    the power lines in front of the top part of the tree give it away

    To bad you had to cut down a tree to take this picture.

  12. Dejan1024 says:

    The front tree is a bit wider than the back one, but on the small picture it is hard to notice.

  13. :D says:

    Um.. WOW, Saahi.. Not to sound rude, but I think most ppl figure it out :p I dont even know if it has to be figured out, its more like an awsome poicture :)

    I like this illusion, maybe because it is so simple, I can actually figure it out. ;-) It’s a very cool effect, though!

  17. Optiguy says:

    That is pretty cool!

    I wish I had a tree like that in my backyard!

  18. Alex says:

    Easy to figure out, but really hard to get the sizes of the tree right if you are taking the photo. Belieive me. I tried it with a tree stump, a car and another tree behind the car. I failed.

  19. Trigger says:

    That freaks me out!

    There could be another tree behind the fence, or it could be photoshopped. Either way, its still cool.
