Can you tell which are real and which are modern reproductions?

Your Total: 20

How did you do?

18-20 — Congrats!
13-17 — Nice work.
6-12 — Extra credit: Is this really Robert Redford?
0-5 — No question Robert Szabo got the best of you.

See how you stack up against friends and family!

Yeah...I got a perfect score. Not so much because I'm a reenactor...I've just studied 100s of original photos to get a good understanding of posing, etc.

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
I got 16. No knowledge of the Civil war, but the HD and effects gave some away.

I got 12 right, there was one that I were like "It should be that one, but if I click on it it will probably be wrong so I take the other one" Ofcourse the other one was wrong xD hahah

I got 19. The quality of the photos gave most away. Some of them were post civil war but definitely quite old so it threw me off on one. >.o

I like most. However, I have found I am most comfortable with Fantasy, Sci-fi, Fandom, and Modern.

The picture with the women threw me off. Otherwise Rory is right, the pose of those within the picture often gives it away.
