With the advent of technology and improvement in power lenses, photography that was a couple of years ago considered as a growing hobby amongst a large population worldwide is now a form of art religiously cultured and revered round the globe. Efficient photo editing software applications (mostly easily accessible in the internet and even for free) has somehow managed to change the outlook of natural photos to such an extent that even if the edited version looks more intriguing or even might seem to be the fodder for thought and imagination but echnically it is feeding lies and nudging the viewers towards false hope and expectation.
Since most of us are actually aware of photo editing, our acceptance to something actually grand and unrealistic has become stringent. Some of the most talented individuals from our species have actually managed to capture a few godly snaps that are just incredible works of man and nature and presented to us unaltered- just how it was meant to be, with all its imperfections and flawlessness amalgamated to create the most unbelievable sights of all.
Whether it be the rice fields terraces in China with multi-colored patterns, the unbelievable curves of Icelandic rivers, the snap of the Oregon forests in autumn or the humungous frying pan sculpture in Sydney, the sculpture in Southern France of a man which seems to be incomplete, the wooden cabinet carved in excellent that makes it look like experiencing analog glitches, it can be so easily believed not being true and photoshopped. There are skilled photo editors who are masters in hiding the flaws and making television and internet more unrealistic and full of high expectation which has a great adverse effect. This makes the viewers to eventually lose the sense of how realistic art should look like. Photo shopping associated with the fashion world and advertising makes the models and product look unbelievably attractive which most of the times is the case. If you are tired of being tricked and want something real to be amazed, here are some images which would genuinely blow your mind and are real with no touch of photoshopping.
