And yet, there are certainly amazing photos out there — cool, awesome, and certainly not photoshopped! You may think these are too cool to be legit — but they are. Enjoy the 10 amazing photos!
The peculiar looking animal looks like a Photoshop mockup, but she’s not! The animal is actually a zebroid, which is a half zebra, half horse.
This look like a cool CGI effect from a sports commercial, but the tennis court is 100% legit! The sky high tennis court is located in Dubai, where everything else looks sci-fi and out of this world.

Building of Balconies
Now this looks like a Photoshop artist went all crazy with the software clone tool. There’s just too many balconies everywhere! This is actually a real facade of State Tower Building in Bangkok, Thailand. It boasts 68 floors, an an exaggerated amount of balconies.

On a parking lot, we see the word ‘DOWN’ seemingly floating out of nowhere. This is no work of photoshop, but an artist’s ingenious use of optical illusion: when viewed at an angle, it looks like the letters are floating, but they are actually painted on the walls!
We’ve heard of the headless horseman — but a headless horse? Sounds crazy! The horse’s head is actually looking the other way around.
