    I'm just curious and I have been asked before -
    Is bliss.bmp a real photo of a real field and if it is
    then where was the picture taken and who took it?
    If it is a computer generated image then who made it?
    What was it called Bliss ? Who named it?
    Who knows?

    Thanks for your help on this guys -
    Much appreciated!

    Oh, don't be a poop.

    If you blow up a section of the image, you will see it is computer
    generated. Though not an expert.......... it looks like it may have
    been created using Corel's "Bryce".

    I'm curious- how, exactly, can you tell that it's from a CG image? What
    sort of things do you look for when you check out the image?

    Thanks,

    Jonathan Scoles

    Duplicated patterns, and a more "abstract" look the closer you zoom
    in.
    I've been using "Bryce" for years, and you easily spot a CG vs real.
    Close....but no cigar.
