Amazing Hilltop Homes

A reader sent in these photos of amazing hilltop homes wanting to know if they're real or fake. I'd say it's pretty obvious that they're fake, but they're definitely cool, nevertheless. I would guess that they come from a Worth1000 photoshop contest, though I haven't confirmed this yet. I think they've been circulating around for a while, because I have a vague memory of seeing a few of them before. Note that in the second image from the right you can see a car in the garage, if you look closely.

I know it's a Worth 1000, I've seen the first pic before, I just can't seem to find what the gallery was called. I know it had to do with homes, obviously.

I wonder if I could get a 25 year mortage on the iceberg house?

It almost looks like something out of the Myst comptuer game series.

The hilltop house looks like my house that was destroyed to make room for a bypass!

You've been looking for a good "picture" of the "museum," right, Alex?

Make something like this.

The Fourth and Fifth ones look legit, but the first three look pretty bogus.

They're real... it's just that the first three were destroyed the next day when the tide came in.

#3 is fake: very clear copy-paste action. But creative, nevertheless 😊

I think number 1 is a picture of the Hopewell rocks (flowerpot rocks) in NB, Canada. I've been there several times and I assure you that there is no house in one of the rocks.
