Eye Trickery

See if you can spot the mountain goat on the side of this cliff.

This is the actual photo which is nothing more than a concrete wall
next to the Halifax Ferry Terminal. Mother nature and seagulls
certainly had a lot to do with the effect.
I was about 10 ft away when I took this photo. To me I envisioned
what looks like the side of cliff and with the help of photoshop I
added a mountain goat to help with the effect.

What a little photoshopping and imaginative cropping can create in the mind of the viewer, or at least this viewer. I think if the mountain goat was either excluded from the image or smaller the effect of looking at a cliff face would have been even strong.

Ha! But I knew it, having shot enough of this kind of old concrete
when building my texture library. ;)

Eye trickery ? Put this on a canvas and let the bidding begin.
