Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Here is an interesting photograph. This photo was not manipulated with Photoshop or any other photo manipulation software.

How is this illusory effect accomplished?

oh, that's easy^^
also the lag which is out the frame is a picture. and the man just put his hand there...

I'm guessing the frame, leg, and shadow of the leg are all painted on the wall. Basically a mural.

How the illusory effect is accomplished:

A combination of a Trompe-l'oeil painting [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trompe_l%27oeil ] and forced perspective.

The other two comments are correct. My explanation just gives a name to the style of painting, and the camera trick used.

The lack of a corresponding shadow from the man's arm connected with the shadow from the woman's leg makes it obvious that the image is merely a mural.

Yes, even i think it is painted on the wall (The leg and the shadow).
