Graphic designer Daniel Siering and art director Mario Schuster wrapped part of a tree trunk with plastic sheeting and made an amazingly detailed and realistic spray-painting of the surrounding landscape on it. The result is a brilliant illusion that the tree has been sawed through and is floating in mid-air over its stump. The two co-workers at Art-EFX in Potsdam, Germany had the idea after spray-painting lots of transformer stations for their customers. (Photo Credit: Art-EFX/Rex Features)

Joanne Milne, who was deaf since birth, reacts after hearing for the first time. Ms Milne, 40, from Gateshead, was born deaf and during her 20's also began to lose her vision due to the rare medical condition Usher Syndrome. But last month she was fitted with cochlear implants and after 40 years of silence the life-changing procedure has meant she is now able to hear. The incredible moment when she hears a nurse going through the days of the week was filmed by her mother and shows her bursting into tears in shock. (Photo Credit: TREMAYNE CROSSLEY/PA)
