What is it? See if you can guess what the photo is. To see if you are right, pass the mouse over the photo. There are two sets of photos...the first set of ten is mostly for the young, the second for the young at heart.
During my first Army tour in Germany in the early 60s, I enjoyed a diversion in the German magazine, Stern. The object was to locate minute changes made to classic paintings where the original was displayed side by side with the altered painting. At the left below is the original of Orazio Gentileschi's The Lute Player. See if you can find 10 indications that the painting on the right is a digitally altered fake!
Be careful not to slide your mouse cursor over the altered painting on the right until you are ready to get the solution. Just like the photos above revealed what they really were when you slid your mouse over the photo, the right painting will do the same thing. In case you STILL can't tell what the change is, there is a brief description below the paintings. OK...go for it!! (Careful...don't drag the mouse over the image on the right until ready for the "solution.")
1. Extra hair. 2. Extra shadow in ruffle. 3. Ruffle changed in front. 4. Line missing from book. 5. Color change in ribbon. 6. Shorter little finger (still just as UGLY as the original!).
