Compare these photos - real film or digital simulated film?


My name is Roy Fochtman and I study "media informatics" at the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne, Germany. I am currently conducting a research on film photography on the topic "A comparative study on the example about the simulation of the film Kodak Tri-X 400 using DxO FilmPack 5". I will therefore be glad if you can help me complete the following sets of questions about your photography knowledge. After that you will compare the photos I prepared and decide which one was taken using real film and which one was taken with a digital camera and simulating the film characteristics using DxO FilmPack 5.

For further information about my thesis and what I am exactly researching, please follow this link: http://www.royfochtman.com/blog/2015/05/03/kodak-tri-x-400-real-film-vs-digital-simulated-film/
Also under this link, you will find all the photos in a bigger size. If you want to analyse the photos at full screen resolution, then follow the link, they have the same order as in this survey.


With the results of this research, I want to find out, if DxO FilmPack 5 is good enough to "cheat" our eye, so we think we are seeing a photo made using Kodak Tri-X 400 film.


Thank you in advance for your time, and I hope you enjoy this survey!
