Awesome blue tones. Great detail in the reflections due to the backlighing caused by the blue lights. However, I don't see how it fits the challenge...

This is a very pleasing shot, with great color and composition. However, I'm not seeing the illusion in it.

in Hiroshima?

This reminds me of the Hiroshima peace lanterns.
Great efect, well taken shot, although the link to illusions is not a strong as it could be.

Beautiful colors! I really enjoy this shot.

I think it's a stretch to call this an illusion. It's a photograph of lanterns. It neither tricks nor fools me of thinking otherwise. IMHO.

This is absolutely beautiful, but I wouldn't really say it meets the challenge.

lovely image and use of color and reflection
  Photographer found comment helpful.

very pretty. I like the mood this picture gives off...however it might score low because I don't think it's really an illusion
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm unsure of the illusion but I really like the blue lighting and the reflection is gives off.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Beautiful shot - love the colors and reflections. Not sure how much of an illusion this calls to mind, but it is difficult to tell if they're floating on water or on pavement. Nice job.

cool image, not sure if its an illusion per say, but is an interesting subject well captured in the darkness, nice

Nice shot and nice tones. Had too look twice to see what's going on.
The lanterns almost disect the image into top and botom halves, which is not as strong in composition as 1/3 2/3. I like it though.
