    Fake or Foto?

    Here is something that was pretty fun to try. Go to this link:

    http://www.autodesk.com/eng/etc/fake_or_foto/index.html

    and take the Fake or Foto? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> challenge. I scored a 7 out of 10.

    Interesting. I scored 8/10, but it's becoming really difficult to distinguish 'real' photographs from computer-generated pictures!

    Excellent job Hans! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    I know what you mean. On a couple of the ones that were CG I had to go back and look at very closely <img src=/S/eyeout.gif border=0 alt=eyeout width=15 height=15> because I could swear they were real. It is amazing and maybe just a little scary as to how real the unreal has become.

    Have a look at http://www.povray.org/...I revisited this a few weeks ago and there are some real experts out there, but the galleries are stunning <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Jezza!

    Those were great to look at. I am always amazed at what talent is out there and its ability to express itself. So many of those were so life-like, more like photos. Have you ever seen any of the work by the British artist, Julian Beever? His sidewalk chalk art is absolutely astounding!

    Heh hee, they are great, a real kick with perspective...there is a beer bottle one that is crazy......but like all these things you have to be standing in the right place to get the real affect.

    I devised a KTS project 2 years ago where we were able to draw extended images on a piece of paper and when we viewed with my "Adverscope" viewer we would see it as though it was standing upright....I really must publish it on my web site but Mrs J threw it awat without my knowledge about 6 months ago.... <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    And last but no least, there is the work of Kurt Wenner that is very much like Julian's albeit a bit more classical in nature.

    I like the one with the insides of the truck all charred up, ostensibly due to the spicy nature of the chips that were being transported. <img src=/S/burnup.gif border=0 alt=burnup width=31 height=31>

    I really enjoy your KTS projects and would love to see that one if it can be recovered and posted.

    OK Mickey

    You wanted to see a recovered KTS project. I have found the old files and was banished to the spare bedroom wher e there is a nice big desk.

    Question now to you is:

    What are you looking at in the photograph below?

    Jezza,

    Sorry for the late post but I have been away for the holiday, Thanksgiving over here. That translates in to <img src=/S/munch.gif border=0 alt=munch width=19 height=17> 'Eat lots of turkey, stuffing, veggies (including mashed potatos), cranberry sauce, and deserts until you pass out! <img src=/S/snore.gif border=0 alt=snore width=32 height=15>

    As for your KTS question, I haven't the H <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> of an idea what I am looking at! <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15>

    Any hints?
