    This makes me think of a project led by Canadian sculptor Joe Fafard of horse sculpted in a field that evolved with the seasons/crops.

    There’s no reason to spoil this by claiming Photoshop. The projects wouldn’t be that hard given time, organization, and experience. It would be marvelous if these images inspired others to explore large scale mural projects.

    Inakadate is a few hours drive from my house. These are grown every year and are designed to be optimally viewed from a certain perspective- the balcony of town hall. Quite impressive in person. It saddens me that somebody immediately thinks of Photoshop upon seeing these photos; they must see clone tooling and gradients everywhere.

    @Drewkulele: Photoshop fakes usually don’t show the same scene from several angles, including closeups.

    Speaking as a graphic artist I can assure you that faking all the photos in that link would have been almost as hard as doing it for real.

    I see stuff like this and, sadly, in this age of Photoshop, I tend to be very suspicious of it, and, frankly, these look fake to me.
