Cool Ceiling trompe loeil (Trompe l'oeil.)

Take a look at the celing and check out this picture. This is located at a landmark in Germany. If you look at the ceiling, it looks like it continues up into the sky. But, believe it or not, those extra columns and everything is all painted. It's a pretty incredible tromp le oliel example of how to make use of a shorter ceiling!

amazing ceiling painting, it's not real!

And here, as seen above, if you move a little to the side you can see it starts to become really flat.

Here is just the incredible painted ceiling in a different toom. Still pretty cool, but not quite as amazing as the first photo on this page.

And here is some more of the great paintings from another angle. Absolutely gorgeous trompe loeil. (Also spelled Trompe l'oeil.)

Best of the Best (our newest original optical illusions)
Diamonds appear to be the same shade. But they're not!

Same Shade Diamonds

Wow! It will look like the diamonds on the top are much darker than the diamonds on the bottom.

Perfect and printable! This is a very strong optical illusion, and is even noticeable in the small image to the left. Doesn't it look like the top row is considerably darker than each successive row?

moving red spiral

Moving Red Spiral
Sometimes, while I'm just playing around in Photoshop, something appears, as if by magic. This illusion was one of those that just jumps off the page.

It's a large red spiral on a purple background that appears to jump and move. Works better for some people than others, but if you like the moving illusions, you'll love it! Although this small image might move a bit as you read these words, the larger versions are even better!

Moving Backgrounds

It moves! You must zoom in to get the full illusion. You'll see the rings rotate, even though they are not moving at all.

We've created several sizes so you can use as your desktop background.
