    Default It's time for your eye exam. Please have a seat.

    I don't think this has been posted before, so test your visual acuity:

    9 out of 10

    I would have gotten 10 out of 10, but I changed my answer on the first one from fake to real..... even though I thought the people in the far background behind the gate looked fake. Should've gone with my instincts....
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    The whole background on that first one -- from the gate to the buildings -- looks fake the more I look at it. I guess the car convinced me to change my original answer. Pretty impressive CG....


    and I flat-out guessed on the bacteria looking one....

    9 for 10. It probably helps that my brother does 3D graphics and graphical design for a living.

    Notice you're the only one that is complaining?!? ;) Is there a trend going on here?

    Actually, I believe the entire picture of the BMW is CG, and you were just fooled :( :D

    But don't feel bad, you're among good company!

    8/10

    #1 car reflections and lighting are good.
    #7 car trunk reflections have jagged edges, too much chrome emphasis, and the plate is questionable.
