9/10 right, missed the blue glasses of water.

it's not that difficult really, if you start looking for imperfections. dust on the chess pieces, jagged tips of grass blades, tiny bubbles (heh) in the wine...

the cg is just too *perfect*. the only cg on the entire quiz that was worth even half a damn was the shot glass in the bonus round -- and i blame that on the crappy jpeg compression -- the artifacts were throwing me off. i'll admit, the dice almost stumped me too, but the top right dot on the 6 side of the left die.. see it?

I got 7/10, I have a good grip on reality, I don't need to see my therapist.

I'm colourblind, that's my excuse.

9/10 here - The big pile of nails was just too far away to really see enough detail. I agree with one of the previous statements - CG is still just too perfect. If (when?) we are able to introduce natural imperfections in the CG we create, then the game might be another story. :)

I'm going to blame it on not trying too hard (ha!), but I only got 5/10. My attention to detail isn't what it u

I got 9/10 first time... those nails fooled me. I got 4/4 on the bonus. Their right, the CG's usually had no natural imperfections. No dirt, perfectly smooth surfaces.

well i feel like a loser with my 6/10. but i didn't sleep last night. the nails were good.

8/10, the nails fooled me, but I was 50/50 on the wet table and chair, the filter effect seemed too sharp.

Only 2/4 in the bonus round, I also blame the crappy quality of the glass image.

9/10. I didn't have trouble with the nails, it was the glass tumblers i got wrong.
