Hi Tony,

Yeah, your right, I was just thinking most of the new car ads in the magazines these days are 3d models, most likely the car probably wasn't even on the production line when the images for the ad were produced.

To some point, more so to the untrained eye and the majority of people, who look at photographs as a whole not the details, most of the time there would be some small give away to say it is a render, be it angle of light, shadows, textures etc.

It is a capture of a real physical object or person before it is manipulated though, not made up of computer code.
