    Ten out of Ten...wow, I impress myself. I admit I probably guessed at one or two, but I feel like I used logic on how detailed I felt a fake photo could possibly get compared to the real thing.

    Also, 3/4 for the bonus round.

    Hmm... eight out of ten for me. I'm happy with that. There was one that looked very, very CG to me (I won't say which to avoid spoiling it for those who read the thread before trying the quiz), but I'll also admit to a bit of guessing.

    10 for 10. O YA. I would say two of them were just a guess, but on some you can just tell.

    8/10 not bad considering I'm sure some of you will be print/graphic professionals who know what to look for in a good fake.

    looking at the text again I did not realize that I could enlarge the images:eek:

    So, now I got 9/10 right.

    In general, you mean? Genuine photos but lit perfectly, shot by top professionals and given a good spit and polish in Photoshop for good measure. ;)

    I'm talking about the images of the apple products on www.apple.com
    The iBooks, iMac, Powermacs, everything!

    I just think they are too perfect, and if you consider these are 3d models, it also makes it a lot easier to make these Quicktime VR gallery movies.

    9/10 on the first round, though the golf ball was a toss up, the grass looked a little too clean, though, looking back there was one dead tip that I should have picked up on.

    4/4 on second round. :)

    If you know what to look for the lighting is really impossible to get perfect in CG graphics, and if the lighting looks perfect look for natural imperfections, the chairs one in the second round almost got me, but if you look at the seat portions of the chairs you'll see some natural-looking texturing and lighting, a giveaway that it's not CG.

    Couple hours later, 7/10.

    Retried, 10/10. Bonus Round, 4/4. The bonus round was EASY!!

    Some products look real, but some look fake. The iMac G5, for example, with the built-in iSight, looks fake.

    I think all of the Mac's on store.apple.com look fake.

    I doubt they're fake, but just highly Photoshopped to improve the image.

    9/10. It wasn't too hard, but it's interesting to think "Could a CGI image look that realistic" and "Could a photo look that perfect?".

    I generally look at the texture and lighting to determine my answer. 8 of which were correct. :D

    7/10 - I've done it before, but I think that's awesome how realistic things are looking in CG.
