10 Unbelievable Pictures You Won't Believe Aren't Photoshopped

Top 10 Unbelievable Pictures

The natural world around us has graced us with beautiful sights and amazing wonders. Though sometimes there are certain things that make us go 'WOW', whether they are man made or a natural wonder. Here's a top 10 list of some of the most amazing pieces of art, natural wonders and amazing skill! Now I must say, all of these photos are 100% real, no photoshop, camera trickery or any sort of thing like that was used, they're all real!

10. Giant Rubber Ducky

You know the giant in Jack and the Beanstalk? I can't blame him for being to angry and grumpy, he probably didn't have a very good childhood! There was always one thing that could cheer me up though... my rubber duck! That little yellow duck you used to fight of the 'evil sponge' and the 'invading soap pirates', was that just me? Anyway, if the giant had this, he'd be happy for sure! Created by Dutch Artist Florentijn Hofman, this Giant Rubber Duck floats in the city of Osaka. What fun!

"The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn't discriminate people and doesn't have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!"

Bathtime!
Bathtime!

9. Terraced Mountains in China

Like a surreal piece of artwork swirling around, the colors vibrant and strong! It looks like a fantasy world from a film, but it really does exist. The Terraced Mountains in China were used to grow rice but have now been altered to hold water of all colors. I really think it's quite beautiful actually, it's a natural wonder made even better by the creativity of man.

Swirling, swirling, swirling...
Swirling, swirling, swirling...

8. Tree Climbing Goats

The humble tree! A place for monkeys to play, koalas to sleep, birds to nest and.... goats to climb? That's right, these goats can actually climb trees! The goats live in deserts of Morocco and when they need to find food they climb up the Argan Tree to search their surroundings. Sometimes seen as goats on small mountain ledges, it's no surprise they're climbing trees now!

Careful...
Careful...

7. Tightrope Walk

:O This one continues to amaze me, you would need so much skill for that... and so much courage! Dean Potter is an American free climber who tackles some of the most difficult climbs and highline walks, without a harness! I don't know about you but I would NEVER do something like that, I think he's going to die doing what he loves if you know what I mean! He is pictured here on a Highline without any safety equipment over the mountain. Check out the video to see him in action!

6. Sidewalk Chalk Art

Now there are a lot of amazing pieces of chalk art out there, for those of you who don't know, artists use chalk on flat ground to make it look 3D. (Check out this hub for some of Julian Beever's work- http://hubpages.com/hub/Incredible_Beever) So it's very hard to pick just one but I have found an amazing one by Edgar Mueller. This work is right in the middle of the walking street so everyone will see it! The thing is, you have to be looking at it from the right angle otherwise it will just look a bit weird!

Don't fall in!
Don't fall in!

5. Car Dirt Art

Wonder what to do with all the dirt on your car? Some people draw smiley faces, some people create crudely drawn 'rude parts' and others write 'Wash Me' on it. Artist Scott Wade has actually done something quite amazing and creative with his car dirt, made it into a panorama picture shot! Specializing in rear car windows, Scott manages to create works of art with just the dirt on the car! From the Mona Lisa to a beautiful landscape, Scott can make just about anything with car dirt! Check out his website for more information and cool pictures! http://www.dirtycarart.com/

"WASH ME"
"WASH ME"

4. Paint Billboard

"Ok, nearly, almost there, good! The paint can is stable!"

"Don't be too sure man, it's coming down!"

"Ahhhhhhh!!!!!!"

No the paint didn't fall out the billboard and onto the pavement, that's just silly! But this billboard really make it seem that the paint spilt out into the real world. This is a real billboard in Downtown Columbus, America promoting Coop's Paints. It really is quite clever how it spills down onto the wall, ground and cars too!

Look out!
Look out!

3. Garbage Shadows

When was the last time someone called your artwork a piece of garbage? That art you've been working on for hours only to be told it's rubbish? Well this couple have taken a whole new meaning to a piece of crap! They use garbage and light to create shadows of certain things. This one is called 'Dirty White Trash (with gulls)' and depicts a man and a woman drinking wine. Tim Noble and Sue Webster, the English artists, retrieve most of the rubbish used from the streets of London. Check out this link to see more of their great art! (http://www.google.com.au/images?client=safari&rls=en&q=Tim%20Noble%20and%20Sue%20Webster&oe=UTF-8&redir_esc=&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1280&bih=663)

2. Painted Woman

I know what you're thinking, it's a pretty good painting. The shadows are precise, it's got a dark realistic feel, but what is it doing here? It's just a painting, not unbelievable at all. What may shock you is that it's not actually a painting at all, it's a real woman. Artist, Alexa Meade paints different people to make them look like they're actually in a painting. Alexa says this;

"I paint representational portraits directly on top of the people I am representing. The models are transformed into embodiments of the artist's interpretation of their essence. When captured on film, the living, breathing people underneath the paint disappear, overshadowed by the masks of themselves."

Wow, pretty amazing Alexa! Check out her website for more information- http://www.alexameade.com/portfolio.html

She's actually naked!

1. Paper Sculpture

Now this one can't be real! It just looks like a cartoon photoshopped behind the hill but in reality it is actually a sculpture. Artist, Neil Dawson created this giant metal sculpture to give the illusion that it is a piece of paper dropped on the hill, talk about effort! It is located on an art farm in New Zealand and truly is impressive, come on, it's huge! I think this is one pretty amazing sculpture if you ask me!

I've come across most of these before, in forwarded emails.

However I hadn't seen the garbage shadows before - they were awesome!

Wow, I can believe the goats really climb that tree. That is amazing. I have never heard of anything like that. That sidewalk chalk is awesome. The tightrope guy is nuts. I would love to photograph some of these unbelievable things.
