and not a painting, discuss...
but the splotches of white — what are they? not clouds surely?
I think i'm looking at what you are..
it's just like when one of those 3D images click into place. I was thinking the orange was sky, but now I can suddenly see it as a sand dune.
well maybe the tiniest bit
it looks exactly like a painting
just the fact that the dune looks like sky means it looks like a painting, the contrasting colours, the trees looking really dark. If youre telling me that looks like a normal photograph then youre colourblind or something.
in that when I first looked at it I thought it was definitely artificial but the longer you spend with it the more realistic it appears. Very impressive photo either ways.
i like that little tree on the right though
The edges of the trees are far too sharp. I'm amazed noone has said this yet
They're all jaggedy, they look like they've been cut out with scissors
combined with the natural effect of edge-enhancements from JPEG compression.
I hate them.
but we're viewing a JPG version so it will suffer slightly from edge enhancement.
It looks unreal but it's perfectly reasonable as a photo.
I dunno, I always think HD telly looks weird as well though. Jumped up indie bellend, lo-fi all the way, etc.
I've got a Sony 24" widescreen tube TV and I'm not belting out for HD until it dies. It's only 10 years old now so god knows what cool shit we can buy in 2027.
these people have just realised that the trees are in focus.
it looks like the trees are from a game and the person playing the game is running it at 1024x768
? it was a joke
i wasn't implying that that's what it actually is
Looks like a painting? NHurnhur extremely unlikely! Maybe if you're some kind of neandarthal running at 1024 nyehnyeh I can even see the pixels nhurnurgh" *pushes up glasses from bridge of nose, goes back to painting online orc figurine
If you've got one of those displays that makes blacks look grey and is all BRIGHT then you'll see all the lines in the trees and the sand easily.
If you've got a Sony VAIO XX Black one then it's going to look more like black, blue, orange and cream and, as such, seem more like a painting.
my brain sucks.
