70 Strange Photos That Are Not Photoshopped

Here we are learning Photoshop as amazing results are always possible with photo-manipulation. However there are also many photographers that like to take original pictures that look extremely unreal. Let’s check them out now! Click on each image for their sources.
Li Wei is a contemporary artist from Beijing China. He states that these images are not computer montages and that he works with the help of props such as mirrors, metal wires, scaffolding and acrobatics. He then removes the wires and scaffolding with Photoshop to create these seemingly impossible photos. Do you believe it? Check out his portfolio here.

Alexiuss is not just the master of digital painting, but also a great photographer. You can see more of these high speed photography at his deviantART gallery.

Liu Bolin is a young Beijing based artist who has exhibited primarily in China until last year’s solo show at Paris’ galerie bertin toublanc and a group show with the gallery in Miami. Followings are some of his "Camouflage" series. Click here to see more of his works.

There is a group of photos associated with Clouds. It is interesting to see how each photographer took their shot creatively with other objects.
Poor horse…
I cannot believe this image was not photoshopped. The chance for such a scene to appear is almost impossible. Isn’t it?

    The world is full of art, if only the public were shown this in newspapers and television, so the world could see the world that they live in.

    Mostly in papers and television we see political issues, crime and racial-religious reports.

    we have been made to forget beauty and peace. Here is an example of true relaxation> the pictures are great ambassador.

    Follow your heart!

    Good Illusive Images, especially that which is a House with wave like effect. This really seeming to be photoshopped, but if not, then it is astonishingly a work of great Artistic Talent. I also have a very simple imagination which I personally invented, can I post my images to your site in any way.

  38. Hi friend…although you claim these pics not to be “Photoshopped” but it must be surely hard for the viewers to believe.

    However, few months back, I also had a post on my blog

    “20 Sensational pictures claiming NOT to be Photoshopped!!”


    Chk them out, if you agree they are not photoshopped.

  39. Joe Carson says:

    I don’t usually post on blogs but had to on yours. You have a very distinctive writing style. A lot of people don’t have that touch, they just drone on and on in the most boring way. But not you – thanks! Don’t have time to read everything here at the moment, I found your site while looking for something else on Bing. But I’ve bookmarked your homepage and will visit it regularly to read the latest. I learn a lot from reading other sites about home-based businesses. It’s such an exciting area. I started working from home about six months ago and I have learned a lot in that time. I also started a small site about it myself. Seems like there is something new to learn all the time. Please visit my web site at http://www.LinkThe.com. Thanks again for a very educational site.
