Well spotted, I had already decided this one was a photograph. There are
several other images I am not too sure about either (Not that I think they
are photographs they just look a bit strange and very low resolution
without any comments/source files etc..)

really, what is the point of posting a photograph (a "stolen" photograph at
that!)? did this person just not understand what IRTC is?

lifetime ban for this person is needed (kidding... but only a little bit).

As an aside, I think the quality in this round has hit an all time low. I've
seen better images from DKBTrace. I propose the subject "reflective sphere
on a checkered plane" for the next round.
