33 Best Photos Ever Taken Without Photoshop.

There are times that we take photos and then we look at them and we go ... meh! But then you take one random photo that looks so perfect and unique that you're totally blown away by it. And while you certainly don't have a clue what you did. You often find yourself in shock because you've somehow created a visual illusion that is just too good to be true. But since many of us aren't privy to gazing at such amazing photos, we're completely mesmerized by this particular collection. Trust us, they're so symmetrical that your brain will go on serious overload.

#1. Rarely does ice, water, sky, and shadow come together to form a perfect symmetrical photograph.

In this case, all four elements seem to come together to form a flawless canvas. We're not kidding! It looks like four photos put together. But it's actually just one photo taken at the right angle and at the right time of day.

#2. What looks like a split screen capture of a video is actually from a toxic waste flood.

Spanish photographer Palíndromo Mészáros took these photos six months after a Hungarian town experienced a toxic waste flood.

#3. You might think this is some sort of screen cap from "Lord of the Rings," but you'd be mistaken.

It looks like Rivendell, a mythical Elven town mentioned in both the books and the films. But in this photo, the reflection in the water creates a perfect circle that makes it seem almost like some kind of magical portal into a world of fantasy.

You might think this is some sort of screen cap from "Lord of the Rings," but you'd be mistaken.

#4. A photographer decided to use a mirror shard to create this amazing optical illusion.

It might seem like you're looking at a boat sailing across the water in the far distance, but there isn't actually a crevice beyond those trees. It's just a perfectly crafted trick, but what a lovely photo this makes.

#5. You'll get a splitting headache trying to figure out how this rainbow has split high in the sky.

Was photoshopped used? Nope, this is called a fallstreak hole cloud.

You'll get a splitting headache trying to figure out how this rainbow has split high in the sky.
