Ridiculous boat ad photos

Looks like a photo out of the Robin Leach show
"Life Styles of the Rich and Famous" want-a-be's."

Click the photo and zoom in on her fingers in a close up. Phony.
OMG!:yikes: originally, I was going to write, 'a pastey-white girl in a bikini', but I didn't want anyone to feel insulted, but now, I think you're right, she's entirely fictional. No wonder she looked so pastey.

That chandelier is not even in the same spot in those two photos. It is lower in the second photo. Either it was photoshopped in or someone, just out of frame, was holding it up.

a real doll
That would depend... are we talking about a literal physical "doll" or are we talking about "Man she is a real doll, I'd sure like to meet her!"

First one.... Easy - Take a match light it ... Poof everything up in smoke (hollow air - no heart)

Second one.. Very hard - Need a bit of luck...touch her heart (not literally) and you can be soul mates for ever.

She is definitely photo-shopped in. Or those are the hardest cushions I've ever seen, cause she's not making a dent in em'...

I think she is both an inflatable and photoshopped in. Her arms are way too short for a real girl and, as Tom pointed out. The hands are just drawn in.

Where's the running rigging? As someone already pointed out the entire thing is CG. Assuming the cockpit is aft, this would be very interesting to see where lines would be ran to make it functional

Great Thread @rgranger. That chandelier is priceless!

One girl in a bikini laying in the shade, a Champaign bottle a million dollar yacht. Looks like the definition of desperation.

Looking again. The funny thing is that it took a lot more effort (time/money) to Photoshop this than it would to make a real photo. Where did this come from? Is it a future concept rendering?

Future concept rendering is my guess. Nothing, except the left portion of the background landscape, is real here.

As an architect, we do this all the time for real estate developers. Create an enticing rendering of the proposed building, drop it into a site context photo, which could even be a Google Earth image, and they use it for marketing, zoning approvals and financing. I think we’ve all seen more renderings of new boat models not actually in production yet than we realize. The best ones can be almost impossible to recognize as anything other than a photograph.
