Bobby Towe took this optical illusion picture a couple of years ago and titled it Spirit of The Woods and Water. The photo surely needs no additional explaining! I noticed however, that people tend to see all sort of things anywhere around them. We get bunch of such submissions, yet only fraction of them turn out credible enough to be posted to this site. Two such examples we had, I always remember about were Machu Picchu Illusion and Praying Mother and Child. Unfortunately, both of them turned out to be digitally doctored :(

    So, is this thing (?) sitting in water to make the reflection, or did the photographer stand a mirror up against it, or what?

    you serious?
    there’s nothing wrong with digitally edited illusions, in fact you get the best “woah” moments from them
    and the mother and child is a painting, not a photo

    my point is that great illusions don’t have to flow from reality, although that can add to an illusion, and artificial illusions can be equally spectacular

  9. hmmmmmmmmmm…………..

    Rotating the picture clockwise, (until the picture’s ‘vertical’ line becomes ‘horozonal’), On the wooded side, where the ‘eye’ appears to be, there’s either a rabbit head with VERY small ears -OR- it could represent a squirle’s head. (The little black dot is the eye of the other ‘entity’ that appears). I hope there’d be another person that sees this. Thoughts anyone? :)

    Pretty tiger :)

  12. This is one reason I enjoy optical illusions. Anyone can see something different and still be “right”. This is one of those great photographic illusions……….

  14. ferret says:

    Photos my father made in the 80ts are also nice examples of this way of photgraphy.

    You have not posted any optical illusion since 29/12/10. Where are you? I am missing new posts.

  18. Dolphin says:

    I like it.A very nice illusion!

  19. Abi says:

    if you look at it sideways it kind of looks like there’s a baby elephant in it.

  20. Joe says:

    Turn the picture 90 degrees clockwise. It’s a big rock, right next to a lake, with thick woods in the background. Pretty cool.
