Default gnomon cheater uncovered?

hi alex, d.caplan or whoever will read this. please check this. maybe it is important. in the september contest got oDDity the 4th place for his picture. but the original was from an (dutch) artist called Jan Vermeer. he lived in the 17th century. i became suspicious when i compared these 2 pictures. perhaps oDDity had a good copy of the original and tweaked it in photoshop. maybe i am totally wrong, but what if i am not...

so, please check this! maybe let the wireframe or a screenshot with the scene be sent to you from oDDity.
here is a link to the original picture from Jan Vermeer (also: Johannes Vermeer): http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Vermeer
and scroll down to the pictures or do a google search.

best regards

No need for alarms, dude. It's actually an amazing 3D recreation of Vermeer's painting. Check out oDDity's thread on cgtalk, it's an award winner.

tnt...

Yep, we immediately recognized it as a 3D 'master copy'... so I knew.
But it is a beautifully executed rendition...
