Very effective indeed, I first thought he was real. Excellent.

Carol from Leamington, Canada

That's quite impressive and looking at your photo it's so realistic.... but of course the wings gave it away! :) It certainly is a one-of-a-kind architecture. A super capture Elaine, I enjoyed!

Beautiful mural ... love your title!

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

A nice photo of art - your framing and processing required a second look to verify that it was not a real person in the window.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Wow! It's hard to determine what's real and what is painted! Is everything (except the tree) painted? If so, that is incredible how it fools my eyes. Great find and cspture!

I was thinking it was a photo scene from the thumbnail - would be cool to remake this mural as a photo - but nice to see the painting as well
