Pretty good ! The CG artists have worked really hard -- but you're still slightly ahead of the game!

This was fun thanks - I got 9 right. I noticed something missing on the one I got wrong but it just looked too good to be CG.

I got six out of ten - I guess I still have problems with details https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bawling.gif https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shake.gif https://www.magle.dk/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/banghead3.gif

Excellent! Nine out of ten answers were correct

Pretty easy, the only one I didn't have was this one

The shading/light effects and the chrome texture seemed wrong to me, but I was wrong! Photomanipulations are amazing now and many commercial photos are all made by computer its incredible!

I wouldn't say that, it is hard especially as the pictures are compressed which gives the viewer the impression that they are computer generated.

The car one was hard that one got me to.

For those of you who thought you were good then take a look at Bert Monroys work he is a photo-realist painter using photoshop and Illustrator.
His pictures will blow your mind, they are not photographs but computer images. http://www.bertmonroy.com/fineart/text/fineart1.htm

It is true that when you look at it for the first time without trying to find the "error" that makes it look computer-made it seems pretty realistic. But when you look closer, some details can tell you that these images are computer-made. However, I would say : pretty neat and impressive work.

This one is my favorite I think.

7 of 10 - and yeah the compression/grainyness of the photos sometimes makes it hard to see what is compression and what is "real". Most of the CGI's were fairly easy to see when taking a good look at the finish which sometimes is a little too "sci-fi" when it's CGI.

10 out of 10, and then on the bonus round i got 4 out of 4, yay
