I voted "real" based on a few things already noted, but I do think it's almost impossible to really know real from model when you get past the photoshop tipping point where more than half the image isn't really part of the source photo.

I'll grant it to Harry that it makes it harder, but I also think there has to be at least some integrity to the photo or the exercise goes from 'real or model' to 'spot the photoshop tweaks' pretty quickly.


Listen Mr. Grumpy pants... :P

I didn't do anything to this photo... it's exactly as I found it. Did somebody do some Photoshopping? Obviously. The background has been blurred. But as far as I can see the truck itself hasn't been touched.

Hey! I didn't say you did it...I know you usually just find the images online. I just think that ones that are this worked-over are extremely hard because the Photoshopping gets so intense it's misleading. There's a point where all the work done to the image crosses the line into altering the image to the point that it's not really a photo anymore, but a photo based computer graphic. I kinda feel ones like this, where the background is changed and the main image tweaked to fit, cross that line. But I got it right, so it couldn't have been THAT hard! B)

As I thought, it was real. So I voted "Real". This was more tricky than I expected, I think, it looks like real, not like model. B) But these little harder ones are lots of funnier than easy ones. Nice car BTW, great start for a RatRod.
