Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make objects appear closer or farther away, bigger or smaller than they really are. This technique makes photographs unique and very creative.
These photos of skies are captured as sunrises or sunsets by Eric Cahan. Photographer uses 4 different cameras ranging from 6 x 7 film to digital. Employing dozens of graduated filters traditionally used by filmmakers, his objective is to create a window into a time and a place, and to demonstrate how memories and colors shift and become abstract.

While sitting on Brighton beach (England) back in 2005 with his new girlfriend Verity, photographer Tom Robinson suddenly thought the view of their feet pointing out to sea would make a nice photo. Ever since then, he has continued to document their travels around the world in this unusual way. In 2011 the series took a new twist with the arrival of a third set of feet – daughter Matilda.
These feet have been to Portugal, England, Scotland, Thailand, Mexico, India, Argentina, Brazil, Australia and other countries.
Another collection of awesome photographs that had no Photoshop touch and look just incredible.
This is another selection of incredible photographs that participate in National Geographic Photo Contest 2011. It seems that judges will have a difficult time choosing the winner.
There were a lot of environmental problems in the USA back in the late 1960's. The Environmental Protection Agency even hired about 100 photographers for DOCUMERICA project that lasted from 1971 to 1977. From all the photographs produced, the National Archives has made 15,000 of images available. These are some of the best photos taken back then to highlight subjects of environmental concern in America and show the life in the 1970's.
