Photograph or Drawing?

Recently, I have been finding tons of stuff on the internet regarding hyper-realistic drawing. So, it's time for a test, can you guess which of the images below is hand drawn and which is perfectly framed by a camera?

So, here’s how this is going to work, below is a gallery of images, take a look at them, decide whether they are photographs or drawings, post your thoughts in the comments!

Piece of cake, right? Ok, let’s get started!

Photo Credits in no particular order:minilidia, quenita,mattydk, Paul Caden, Paul Lung
