(This is an offshoot of the "Four Cats Bar" User Critiques thread. Seamus Finn has generously allowed me to take his image and make a "spot the difference" game out of it, or as I like to call them: "Differenz")
SOME BACKROUND: Difference games are a classic category of photo or visual gaming. You can find them all over the Internet (and earlier in hardcopy in books, magazines, and articles). When I started my photo gaming site (Phoozl), I knew that I had to have some of these so I picked up a couple from other sources and created an original Differenz game of my own. You can play it here:http://www.phoozl.com/30025-Differenz:-Pink-Bow.html
And the category has proven its popularity again on my site as this game usually alternates with "Photo IQ" as THE most popular game (out of 30) on the site. So there is clearly something that draws people to this type of visual-discernment challenge. So are you ready to be challenged with a photo game based on an image from one of our very own LuLas? Come on, give it a try.
FORMAT: A "picture pair" is the typical way to show the images, either side-by-side or top-and-bottom. I posted the image two ways just in case. [***NOTE: they do look a bit small. They are 900x wide. What happened?]
YOUR INSTRUCTIONS: There are two similar images above. Your challenge is to find and describe TEN (10) obvious differences between the two photos. Either just write out the differences in words very clearly or post another image(s) with circles or arrows or something to indicate the differences visually (my preference and more fun). Please post in this thread.
AWARDS: The first 5 folks to get ALL 10 Differenz correct win a free trip to Barcelona in 2043. All other correct submissions get to order a drink from the Four Cats Bar (toll telephone and shipping charges may apply).
When enough people have found the correct 10 Differenz or errors, or when enough time has passed (I decide), I'll give you the correct answers. And you'll be slapping your forehead!
For an extra challenge and bonus points, tell me what image-editing techniques were used for the "changes."
Ready. Set. Go!
