Harry,

The photoshop job looks pretty good. Maybe there should be a disclaimer about the backgrounds and such being changed so as to not give it away (I know there is one somewhere, as I read it, but apparently it isn't obvious enough.) Now I just need to learn how to make the reflection like you and my photoshopped pictures would look much better!

I still don't know if it's real or model, though!

I've been wrong the last two times I played, but I'll say real.

Fake, Its all about angles.. I agree there are parts, specifically the passenger side windows that look way too glossy, but im sure there are things you can do to get that affect. I looked at a few parts.. one the rain on the windshield would be easy to get a spray bottle to give that affect, i mean especially if you are goin for realism. Then i look at the surface the model is on... first of all... its incredibly shinny in front to reflect the model.. but further back it looks almost like sandpaper... Then I look at the tent in the back right.. the furthest back peg is on the ground.. which if this were real would suggest that the front pegs were overlapping on the supposed concrete.. which just doesnt seem like a situation youd need a tent for... I think the table was angled with some sort of make shift surface..... i know... maybe not the most intelligent reply.. but thats just my first take on things...

Also look in the back right... you can kinda see a surface change just before the gas tank, or the red container, whatever it may be.. then think of scale.. now if you bring it up next to the car, similar to the man, it seems like itd be way too huge.

Now that i read the first rules that you can change the back ground.... i still say model... but some of my points may not still hold to be true. it just doesnt look real.

I always seem to wind up in the underdog pack....at first glance it looked like a model to me, and after study, it looked real. When in doubt, go with that first intuition, model it is!

Quite a thorough investigation...unfortunately it's WRONG!

It's REAL! All I did was blur the foreground a bit.

I kept my mouth shut on this one because I had no doubt in my mind it was real. Rain on a windshield is never duplicated in scale.

Thanks for an easy one for a change! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Wow this is so much fun. I now have a record of two correct and six wrong. It's kind of like hitting yourself on the finger with a hammer once a week. If only I could leave the hammer alone.
