Pretty cool looking. Almost looks too shiny for concrete.

Real cool it looks almost like wood and you would swear it was. Real shiny too just like a newly finished wood floor only it is concrete.

I've seen some things similar, though not like that. I'm amazed at how realistic they can make stamped concrete look like real stone. I think the finishing is more of an art than a skill.

First thing I thought of too, mark. Wouldn't look very good with a wear path down the middle.

I assume the sealer would keep the stain from wearing off [probably needs to be redone occasionally] but what about fading? I'd expect the sun/rain might ruin the looks. Stamped concrete driveways generally fade fairly even but I'd be concerned that the other edges of that patio would look rough while the more protected areas would still look great.

I agree. It does look SHARP.....

Fooled me! (The Layman) Thought it was stained wood decking. Or a vinyl wood decking of some type maybe. Looks great.

Guess there also has to be an under lay of some type to prevent moisture??? Also suspect it's under a patio covering and not directly exposed to outdoor weather nor direct sun light?...

Color wise I would prefer a much lighter color.
