5) Forget the grid and it's numbers....it was designed to be a distraction.


OH YOU EVIL, EVIL MAN.





That is so wrong.
I WAS ignoring the numbers for the most part because something in my gut told me not to pay too much attention to them.
But then your clue 'something hidden has not yet been found' made me think of what I hadn't really been focusing on: the representation of the numbers.

EVIL!!!

Onto my foes list you go.

Syandos was right- this was just a ruse to put me in an asylum. I hope you're happy.




If there was a painting 'Wild Goose Chase' I'd go with that but there isn't one.


 


Ok. Hm. That kind of gives us a dead end then.

OK Guys: Look past the obvious either means pay no attention to the grid and numbers or it means something is hidden due to the paintings being cropped in the OP or something very subtle in the painting.

.5+.5 = 1 MIGHT mean to mirror the image using Photoshop.

Just guesses at this point. My brain is FRIED.

Oh, and are all of the other hints true? I don't trust you anymore.


And how on earth did you expect us to solve it when it was just the graph and numbers (before any hints came long)?

OMG I can actually feel a pain in my temples from all of this!

Truth be told I was starting to worry about you.

Yes, that scene was actually filmed after 14 straight hours of grid number crunching. It was the only way I could get the mood/acting right.

OK This is silly but I don't know what else to do. And the grid is not in the above since you said it is moot. Unless you're being sneaky about that, too.

.5+.5=1 represents a man and a woman, two halves making the whole.

'Past the obvious' is due to the fact the image is cropped and you only see the woman in the OP.

Something hidden is the man who is not in the image until you run a Google search.

What happens in Photoshop: When you take the entire panoramic image and cut it in half then overlay both images, she is sitting in his lap.

Yes, the above is stupid but my other guess required the Roman numeral for 5 so that was even more grasping. lol

QUESTION/PUZZLE:



HINTS:


5) Forget the grid and it's numbers....it was designed to be a distraction.



WHAT?!?!!?!

The blue grid with numbers was the ONLY part of the original question/puzzle! How can we "forget it"? You mean there was NO original question and we were to solve this based on the HINTS alone all along??

That is very frustrating indeed after spending many hours working with the singular "Question/Puzzle" given. Geez - what kind of 'game' is that? *sigh*

:bnghd:

The answer or what will lead you to the answer is still within the image even if you ignore the grid and it's numbers. All hints posted are not distractions.

If yall want me to just give the answer I will so we can put this one to bed.

NO! LOL!

Or at least let us guess as many times as we want *IF* we provide the reasons for it (and not just random guesses). I have a few more ideas but nothing remotely 'rock solid' like you said it would be.

That's at least better than just telling us. At least wait until tonight if we can't solve it today lol

Ok, guess as many times as you like for the remainder of the day...8:00pm Mountain Standard Time. You must include the reasoning behind your guess for it to be considered. This is to stop someone from just randomly guessing 100 times until correct. You must show a logical reason for your guess. If it isn't solved by 8pm MST I will post the answer. The time stamp on your post must be before 8pm mst or it will not be considered.

OK Here is what I have so far and why:

1). Count Robert De Montesquio by Giovani Boldini. Why: The single image has his cane at a slant and when you reflect it, it makes a 'V,' for the Roman numeral '5.'

2). My Gems by William Harnett. Why: The number '5' can be drawn into the shape of the center vase. And although you said the graph isn't necessary, it still lines up with the grid in several spots.

3). The Story Book by William Bougueareau. Why: 1 piece of paper in a book consists of two 'half pages.' And although you said the graph isn't necessary, those colors also match up to the HSB codes.

4).

No it is not one of the three paintings you guessed.

This will be my final guess. I'm just taking desperation shots now because it will kill me to be given the answer.
But this is my last guess.

Someone else chime in before it's too late.

I've finally decided to steer clear of this trainwreck.

Seeing people I like and respect fall apart before my eyes.

LOL! I'm sure the twitch I developed will dissipate within a week. I have a feeling this is the last round so I didn't want to totally give up but anything I do from here on out will be reaching.

This was fun, though! Thanks for the fun game, KL! It was nice to see all the art, learn about so many pieces I've never seen before, and see your complete avatar collection in one spot.

Just a few more hours and we'll all know the answer.

Reasoning - blue gradient is like the sunlit sky.

(Obviously wrong, because I didn't use Photoshop).
