    I had seen some, too, esp. that INFAMOUS 9/11 one- c/mon!- but kept hitting "real" for the heck of it, I think. The eye one I did get right.... I goofed on kitty, but I have a monster, too, and just couldn't.........

    Hey! I got 8/10!!! I thinks that's pretty darn good for me!! I missed the Angel ice sculpture & Satan's face in the smoke.
    Guess I'm not quite as Godly as I thought.
    Church on Sunday for me!

    Eye one grossed me out, too!!
    I couldn't hardly see the 'fish/face' one.

    Ok, I only got 7/10 that time. I thought the bear looked pretty fake, oops!!
    As much as I love Pres. Bush (nobody yell at me!!) I really thought he was holding the book upside down. :rolleyes:
    And, How the heck does someone have a camera fast enough to take a picture of a plane going the speed of sound!!!

    I kind of forgot how I answered the same ones on the other quiz. :rolleyes:

    7/10. Not bad for never having seen any of the pictures except for the shark.

    Notice that there are "levels" to the 2nd test.
    Edit: reply#13 in thread.

    No13-

    I knew that there were actually four levels on that second test, but I didn't want to push it to overkill at that moment. But I should have pointed that out.

    Perhaps we could post if we wish on "Museum 2", " Museum 3", or "Museum 4" (an easy way to name the tests, after the website's first title word) ... I mean if anybody's into it. I haven't but glanced at the next test, but will do so today I thnk!

    It's fun stuff, and I taught old fashioned photography way back, when really good fakes were way too much trouble for most pranksters to bother with very often.

    But the advent of digital imaging has made every Tom, Dick and Harry pretty quickly capable of fabricating some convincing images that even experts sometimes can deem fakes only on their gut reaction to the absurdity or overal unbelievability of a piece.

    Crafty, careful digital tomfoolery can correct lighting and shadows and colors in ways that manipulation in the darkroom just can't parallel, unless you have state of the art , very costly equipment, and a big chunk of time to kill...

    Glad some of you liked that sort of thing! Tests 2,3, and 4 are here:
