Albulena Panduri (blue-a on Deviant Art) has created some absolutely stunning photo manipulations. Each one grabs you and draws you into a surreal and beautiful new world. I couldn't help but stare in awe at all of her fantasy worlds. I highly suggest checking out the rest of her gallery if you get a chance.
Jirka Väätäinen gives us an impressive glimpse at what the girls of Disney might look like in real life. What started out as a personal project has turned into a wildly popular series.
Each piece is a mixture of features from different pictures all over the internet. He mixes, blends and combines them together in Photoshop to come up with the final picture.

I absolutely love Bryan Soderlind's photo series of the abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans.
"Six Flags of New Orleans was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and has sat abandoned ever since. The park sits closed waiting for a demolition date that has yet to be determined. On a November road trip I did with the Fox wake crew, we snuck into the park with a winch to get some wakeskating photos. We had this post apocalyptic environment to ourselves for the whole day. I couldn’t stop taking pictures in this surreal setting which featured rusty old roller coasters, stuffed animals strewn about, and gator infested ponds. After speaking with some locals that evening about our day we found out we were extremely lucky as people who trespass there are regularly arrested. I had a better time that day in a closed theme park than I have ever had at an open one."
You should definitely check out all the other photo series by Soderlind on his journal. They are all spectacular. As a fellow Orlando resident, I especially appreciate the one entitled Orange Blossom Trail, which is just down the road from me.
Every industry has its unsung heroes. They are recognized and celebrated by their peers, but are relatively unknown to the rest of the world. One of those jobs in the fashion industry is hairstyling. Let me now introduce you to a master of hairstyling: Arnostyle. Arnostyle creates crazy, outrageous, and amazingly interesting hairstyles for fashion shots.

These amazing sterographic projections were taken by Netherlands based photographer Wouter van Buuren. He takes multiple pictures and merges them into a new reality. To get a 'total landscape' of the visible scenery, he takes his photos atop electricity towers, cranes, high rise buildings, and bridges.
I am absolutely floored by the illustrative art of Brittney Lee. All of her illustrations look like they were plucked straight out of a Disney animated movie. From the character and background illustrations, to the details and colors, everything matches the quality of the most impressive Disney animation. She has even created some paper art that you can catch at the bottom! If you like her work, I highly suggest purchasing something from her Etsy store.
