    I'm guessing 2, mainly because it has more reds in the mid-tones and higher. 3, 4, and 5 all have much more dark pixels, and I just don't see them in the image. 1 is possible due to the even exposure in the mid-tones, but I'm missing the red component, seen in the rail.

    And Sparky, excellent idea! (Yeah, I said it the last time too, but I want to encourage you...;))

    My guess is no.2
    Reasoning... the photo is mostly midtones, few shadows/low lights and few highlights with just the one rock nearing clipping. There are also a lot of reds in the midtones.

    I think it's #1 (even exposure, a lot of mid tones, and no clipping)

    not 2 because the red peak is too far to the right

    3.4. & 5 are too far to the left overall

    I'll go for #2.

    Does the "none of them" choice imply that you'll throw in a red herring at some stage, or are you just allowing for really cynical people?

    My (rather unqualified) guess is #2, based on:

    - Much red and yellow in bright midtones
    - blue/cyan in the rocks
    - Looks like some blown highlights in that rock there
    - Not much clipped black,
    - image is flat, lacking contrast
    - the peak of the white histogram (brightness) is in the middle, with few bright and dark pixels

    So, yeah. I think histogram #2 matches the image pretty good. :) Awesome game!

    I accidentally voted 3 but I meant 2 for the following reasons. First, the cool colors of the rocks. Second, the reddish color of the rusted railroad tie
