This is not trick photography.
This photo of Stefan Bentivoglio walking in the water next to Singapore's Fullerton Hotel is real. Mr. Bentivoglio is real and the water is real, and the buildings and cars are also real. What makes the illusion work is the unreal part - the city is part of Legoland Malaysia. Click on the photo to enlarge it and see the jagged evidence.
As comedian Demetri Martin says:
"I went into a clothing store, and the lady asked me what size I was. I said, 'Actual'. I'm not to scale."
