Ceiling of a building in Melbourne city, Australia
I was fascinated by the illusion of this tunneling effect going up or down or is it a cone. It is an archway ceiling but taken at a different perspective ,it gets distorted.

    Awesome shot! It’s an optical illusion…at least for me it is! I initially saw a cone-shaped structure, but after reading your description I see that first impression are not always correct! Wonderful! Great eye!
