Can you tell the difference

Do you remember I did a post on unusual houses around the world?
Can you tell from these photos which are genuine houses and which have been digitally manipulated?
1
2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

The photos which are not real are
2, 4, 9, 10, and 11.
Did you get them all right?

Elissa - Managing Autism said...

I picked 2, 4 and 11 as not being right... I'll have to go back and look at the others again...

But WOW - I'm amazed at what people can do with houses!!!

A great fun post!!

MOTHER OF MANY said...

Being none too keen on heights and water I am so pleased that number 10 is not real.

quinTarantino said...

Only two of them.
But let me tell you two things:

- they are all great photos;

- I'm much pleased to meet Mother of Shrek :)

Thank you for your visit on my ...photos&secrets

Phil Plasma said...

2,4,11 were my choices of unreal. 9 and 10 like do-able when you see the real ones.

A Bishops wife said...

I figured number 2 was not real or at least I hoped it wasn't. 9-I thought looked doable.

Places you do not want to live with kids!

Vi said...

only one I didn't get right was 9.

laughingwolf said...

wow!

Odat said...

I picked 1 and 4.
Those are amazing!!

R.E.H. said...

Amazing... those are some cool houses!

I picked 2,4,6,9,10,11 as not real - so I was almost right... but WHAT?

6 is a real house? How can that be?

I did think that the picture looked genuine, but I thought "no way that house can be real".

Very enjoyable post!

Inthemud said...

I thought 2,4, 10 & 11 I missed 9

Amazing what can be done on the computer.
I do find these houses fascinating

Angela said...

Amazing!!! No, I didn't get them all right...

buffalodickdy said...

Whatever we can imagine, we probably will figure out how to do..

KAREN said...

I thought 2, 4, 6 & 10. I'd never cope in no. 11 - I don't like heights that much!

DJ Kirkby said...

Nope can't tell, when are you posting the answers.

Casdok said...

I put the answers in the very first comment. :)

katydidnot said...

i thought they were all fake. i wish i lived in the treehouse one.

FXSmom said...

that was fun :)

Stinking Billy said...

But you didn't publish the cost of buying any of them. You do know that I am house-hunting at the moment, don't you? I am particularly interested in No.11.

Ian Lidster said...

Oh -- you gave them away. OK, I got them 'all' right. No, I really didn't want to try, since anything is possible.

Akelamalu said...

I only got two right 2 and 10! :(

Tom Foolery said...

Wow, I would love to live in No1, so close to the sea....TFX

Teachin' this mommy new tricks! said...

All I know if that I LOVE the tree house one. The light house one is really cool too!

Rhonda said...

My favorite is a real one; the tree house.
;)

motherx said...

I picked 2 and 11, the rest looked real to me.

whimsicalnbrainpan said...

I got most of them right. They are all beautiful though.

Stimey said...

I would love to live in #1 or 11. It's my dream to live on my own island. Does that tell you something about my personality?

Stimey said...

I mean #1 and #8.

Does the fact that I can't remember a number for more than 4 seconds also tell you something about my personality?

Angel... said...

I think 2, 4 and 11 are not real and the rest looks very real

what you think??

Omega Mum said...

I'm posting 2,3 and 10 as being manipulated. Now I'm going to check with your answers.

Seamus said...

I had picked 2 & 4 :)

Sweet Irene said...

I think number 2 and number 4 are definitely not real, but I must admit my doubts. How do I find the answers?

Flea said...

I picked 2, 4, 6, 10 and 11. Close, but no cigar. :)

Bettina said...

I had 2,4, 10 & 11 pegged, but missed 9. But then again after having been out to opal mining towns and seeing people living underground that one looked perfectly reasonable to me! lol

misha_k said...

OMG, I got them all right. That's a first. And I was just making wild guesses too.

DJ Kirkby said...

Wow I just saw the thing in your sidebar about Dr Wing. I was diagnosed at her centre by her partner, Dr Gould. I am going to try and remember to check in on the 14th to that online seminar.

Casdok said...

dj, they are a great team arnt they! Im sure if you sign up a reminder will be sent.

LAA and Family said...

Wow, amazing how many different kinds of houses there are! I was fooled by what was real and what wasn't!

QUASAR9 said...

I love 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11

QUASAR9 said...

Though the iceberg would look really cool in Cambridge

QUASAR9 said...

I'm guessing seven is real
though the tree house could be too

Mima said...

I'm feeling quite chuffed with myself, I managed to get them all right but no. 9, not bad! You must have done some real digging around to find some houses as amazing as this, so all credit to you for the research!

Paul said...

I love lighthouses !

Maggie May said...

All I know is that number one is real! They are great photos though, all of them. I wouldn't like to live in a high up place nor one where I would get flooded either.

Betsy said...

Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog! My boys are non verbal, too....and they cover their ears all the time! And did I see something in an older entry about Thomas the Tank Engine? I don't think my boys will ever outgrow their love for Thomas ~ or any train for that matter! Would love to keep in touch with you!

leslie said...

I guessed 2, 4, and 10 right and have to say I wouldn't want to live in ANY of those houses! lol

Kahless said...

Great pictures and some of them such wonderful places to live!

Dazzed and Confused said...

I got two wrong but I suck at tests anyway. :)

~Miss Nelson said...

Wow those pictures are amazing. I would love to live in 5 and 6. I didn't get them all right on the quiz.

Annieye said...

I thought they were all rather odd. I just can't imagine anyone living in any of them.

Ron said...

Evening Casdok~

GREAT POST!!! I love taking a quiz.

I guessed only one of them...4

And that's so funny, because it's the house that I would have chosen for my own. I LOVE to be COLD. However, I know that having any sort of heating system would be out of the question...because it would just MELT!?!

10 would be my second favorite. I love ASIA!

Thanks for a fun post! Hope you're enjoying your weekend.

S.L. said...

Love stuff like this! Wow, some of those homes...woah! :)

WesterWitch/Headmistress said...

I am rubbish at tests as well - but I actually did ok on this one. . .

Jim said...

I guessed pretty much correct. I thought some were unrealistically real. LOL

Thanks for sharing and making us think today.

Jim

Walter Jeffries said...

Those are beautiful, real and not! :)

Moanna said...

I was hoping 7 was real because it's so beautiful! Thanks for posting the answers.

nitebyrd said...

I'd just love to live in two.

grit said...

wow. the rock palace in yemen in definitely real. i'll show squirrel these; she wants to be an architect, as of last tuesday. and thank you!

Leesa said...

I thought 9 was real.
