Maybe Harry is going easy on us this week! I dunno, it sure looks like a model to me but, the background has been p-shopped...

Maybe he's getting out the big guns because we have been tough to fool!!!

I just don't wanna wait til friday ;)

Maybe I used a photo that looks like a model so you'll think that I'm trying to fool you by using a photo that's real but looks like a model...or maybe I'm trying to fool you by using a photo that looks like a model because it is a model and you'd think I wouldn't make it that easy so you'd vote real...or maybe the car is real but looks like a model so you'll vote model even if it's real...or maybe it's real but you vote model because...is your head spinning yet??? ;)

I'd go real because of the reflections on the rear do not follow this light refraction pattern: Posted Image but rather this other one Posted Image where h(v) is a function of the distribution histogram:
But on the other hand however, by applying the Jacobian transformation to the Gamma distribution: Posted Image the result says possibly model.

So bottom line:
What the heck do I know? I guess real so I have a 50% chance ;)

Thanks,

I voted model for two reasons. 1. I think the background is too far out of focus for a unretouched real car and 2. I do not see any nounting holes/brackets for the rear license plate. But I realize that you could have made the backgound out of focus intentionaly and you could have photoshopped the mounting holes out for the rear plate....so therefore in the end it is a guess. P.S. something about the breakline just in front of the left front fender looks more like the platform that a model would be sitting on then a road/sidewalk break. Ok, technically thats three reasons...shoot me. It's still just a guess.

perfect 6 for 6 so far, but I'm anticipating it coming to an end any day now. I say model

and so it has, bummer. I can never be perfect again.

I think it's a model because there's a little spot near the front bumper where the guy forgot to Photoshop the edge of the surface of whatever the car was standing on so it blended in with the road. Take a good look & you'll see what I mean.

FWIW, I think Harry's using the wrong terminology for these quizzes.

There's no question it's real. It's a question of SCALE.
