Digital manipulation can do amazing things to your photographs (as seen here), but sometimes the most stunning images are the ones that haven't been Photoshopped. Take a look at the pictures below to see what we mean.


Show Full Text

Compiled by Bored Panda, the list showcases some of the finest unaltered photographs we could find. Some of them are surreal, some are creepy, and some will positively blow your mind, and all of them serve to remind us that a good picture has nothing to do with your computer skills and everything to do with timing, location, and a keen eye for detail. Don't forget to vote for the best!
