If it weren’t for the 8th pic, I would have believed it – But after seeing the water fairy one, gimme a break.

Photoshopped.

last one is the best one.
the uprise guy is great, too.

#7 Uprise of tourism, is great!

Wow, those are some of the coolest photos I ever seen!

From the water fairy link: Note the last phrase.

“Highly experimental, fluid, high speed: 1/10’000th of a second photography.

The shot is taken in compete darkness, flash is what takes the photo- not the camera’s shutter speed, but rather how fast the flash flashes.

flash duration of the “canon 580EX II speedlight flashes” at 1/16th power is what defines the approximate 1/10’000th of a second photo- that’s how long the flash goes on for.

That is why the EXIF data says “Shutter Speed: 4/1 second”.
Shutter was open for 4 seconds on bulb mode- water is splashed by 3 assistants from 3 sides, 3 flashes go off at the same time triggered by a remote control… takes hundreds of tries.

Take a look at this one too – no photoshop, straight out of the camera. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bradmoore310/2889762735/in/set-72157607516956300/

Hahaha, also take a look at the last picture… It seems like the photographer took a photo right when the clouds were spelling “ArhcamtIlnaad”

NOOOOO WAY!!

[...] Photoshopped?  I think not.  [SmashingApps] [...]

very nice photos!

wow those are some great shots.

the water fairy is most definitely multiple photos, photoshopped

The ring one, really? That’s been done so many thousands of times, and it wasn’t even that creative in the first place.

The water fairy is not Photoshopped. It’s called a balloon filled with water and popped. This was obviously shot at high speed.

The fire dancer photo is amazing.

I love the fire dancer. nice work..

Great share!

nice collection!!i’m impressed with the photography.many of these would be beautifully framed.thank you..fabulous blog!!

Check this one out, “Pinball Self Portrait” at: http://rocket9.net/

No one ever takes this one as not photoshopped until explained that…
1. The ball is taped in place…
2. The camera is behind me, shooting through the gap between my side and arm, using full zoom.
3. To help with focus, have the camera connected to a PC over USB, so I can get full screen previews immediately. I triggered the shutter through the PC with a wireless mouse.

These are so cool, really skilled photography.

i also need to say, that i know for a fact that the water fairy is photoshop stuff.

You can find a tutorial for that effect here http://www.tutzor.com/index.php/2008/05/creating-the-water-man/

The water fairy gets my vote in a BIG way — insane!

I hope it was all done in camera, but even if they did photoshop it it’s sweet :) (cool tutorial BTW, Fossa!)

Wow, great collection of images. I like all of amazing pictures.

Thank you for sharing

great, i can’t believe some of them are not photoshoped

Last one has text on it so it’s obviously shopped, and the water fairy one looks fake. Apart from that, some cool pics :)

AWESOMEEEEE SHOTS (xcept the 2nd one’s – whch is kinda the odd man out here)

Water fairy has to be photoshopped, because unless they found a way to make the camera take part of the photo in black and white (her hair and flowers) and colour (her body) at the same time, it’s just not possible. Also the logo in the lower right hand corner had to be added in after the photo was taken, and anyone who doesn’t believe me can screw off. I went to school to learn this stuff, so shove it. Totally manipulated

The 1st, 5th, and 8th photos do look like they were Photoshopped. If they really aren’t, then that is some wicked photography. Thanks for sharing them!

THAT’S AWESOME.

I most of the times criticize photos which are shopped because shopped photos loose their natural feel. And I even openly comment about that. But since these pics are not shopped, I have nothing to criticize. These are simply amazing. Great job photographers. Keep it natural.

Speaking of natural things I would like to mention my Brand New SUV Mahindra Scorpio. It is hard hitting and rugged with natural muscles. Yes muscles. It has got a lot of muscles, http://www.mahindrascorpio.com

that water fairy..simply amazing!

i think my photos better..
