Geometric Reflections by Victoria Siemer

Victoria Siemer aka Witchoria is a graphic designer and a photographer who lives in New York. In her latest series entitled Geometric Reflections, she shots beautiful natural landscapes, peaceful mountains and green hills. Then she added a geometrical form in the picture, reflecting it like a mirror and giving so an awesome surrealistic look to the photo.

"Monument Valley is an elegant puzzle game where you guide a young princess, Ida, through a maze of ruined monuments. You manipulate the landscape to let Ida get from place to place, using optical illusions to your advantage – as in Monument Valley, when walkways appear to line up, Ida can walk along them – even when you know that they really don't." via Digital Arts

Nois7

"Robert Jahns, better known as nois7, has casually been manipulating photos to create surreal, impossible situations for some time now. Featured throughout much of his work are cities – bold old and new – infused with extremes, from the frozen canals of Venice to skateboarding the skyline of New York City. While the idea itself is not necessarily new, the execution is very well done, leaving the viewer with a sense of awe." via Highsnobiety nois7-8
