Digital manipulation can do amazing things to your photographs even if they're not the most interesting photos (as seen here), but sometimes the most amazing pictures are the ones that haven't been Photoshopped. Take a look at the unbelievable pictures below to see what we mean.

Compiled by Bored Panda, the photo gallery showcases some of the most amazing real pictures we could find. Some of them are surreal, some are creepy, and some will positively blow your mind, and all of these cool photos serve to remind us that a good picture has nothing to do with your computer skills and everything to do with perfect timing, location, and a keen eye for detail. Don't forget to vote for the best!
