Header Challenge 03-04-13 - Illusion or Fool the eye - by Lew

This weeks theme is by Lew - illusion or Fool the eye.

I think you might enjoy listening to my music this week its
Imagination - Just an Illusion

There are many ways to fool the eye, Glass,Mirrors,reflections,angle of the shot or just by Photoshop - 
My photos contain all of these.

My Header Ghostly Legs
These are my legs and I took the photo - I am in a lift - all done by mirrors and glass.

This one is a magic mirror within a post and reflecting me as an odd shape - cool eh!

Hovering Spaceship? look at the stars in the middle - are they moving?
This shot is done by the Angle taken, its the ceiling of a room on a cruise ship.

Now for something completely different

From day to night -  just by walking thru the archway,
Photoshop elements 10

Do you believe in Ghosts?

Well done - I'll never believe any of your photos again :-)

Your photos are always magical to me...whether Photoshopped or not.
I enjoy each posting of them.
I want to learn how to use Photoshop; I have it....just don't use it.
I need lessons!

You bring tons of fun to your pictures and probably to daily life as well. It really shows. Thanks for the magic, Imac.

Lew said...

You are a master of illusion! I have been on a lift (maybe in London) where the floor was an illusion - just a thin grate. I really like you day/night combinations!

George said...

Mac, you're definitely a master of illusion. All of these are marvelous pictures.

Very well done! I had a feeling that you were in an elevator as soon as I saw that photo with your feet and you confirmed it.
