As for the complaints that it is a painting, it does kind of have that look, but I think that it is a photo. Regardless, It didn’t bother me whether or not it was a photo or a painting, as much as it bugged me that I wasn’t sure which it is. It looks like a time-lapse photo ( you can see some people and boats that have moved during the exposure). It also looks like they used a photoshop filter that makes some of the crisp lines look a little broader and softer- almost as if they painted a little on top of parts of the photo. It looks like they either used one of those painterly filters in photoshop, or they over sharpened it in photoshop to compensate for a slightly out of focus image or maybe for the shutter drag…. So if you are picky on photo vs. painting, this is kind of in-between looking. it looks like a photo at first, but close up more painterly. If it is important to you, I have posted some detail photos of the image to help you figure out if it is for you. The colors are beautiful and I like the overall composition of the image… which is something I look for in puzzles. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 61 of 69 people found the following review helpful Painting; not a photo, July 26, 2010 By Liz (Las Vegas, NV United States) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Ravensburger Cinque Terre, Italy – 2000 Piece Puzzle (Toy) Ravensburger puzzles are of great quality, but this particular puzzle was a disappointment. The picture here at Amazon, and on the box that I received, was of a photograph, but when I opened it, I found that the puzzle was of a painting (same scene). If I had wanted to do a painting, I would’ve chosen a Van Gogh. I bought this because I liked the photo; this makes me hesitate to buy any more Ravensburger’s based on the photo on the cover. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply 12 of 13 people found the following review helpful Awesome puzzle with great scenery, July 22, 2011 By Richard Dolbeare “Engineering Hawaii Dreams T… (Lihue, Hawaii, USA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Ravensburger Cinque Terre, Italy – 2000 Piece Puzzle (Toy) This is an awesome puzzle that I worked on for several weeks before completion. It’s very difficult because so many pieces are the same color. The buildings are harder than one would expect as well because each consists of only a few pieces. If you want a great challenge and some very interesting scenery, then you will probably enjoy this one. That assumes you like spending hours and hours, week after week, in putting it together. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
