DSC02381 3D Monument dedicated to farmers. Pls read the green sign. 3/19/07 - SE view

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

If you like to see this scene in dazzling 3D, please cross your eyes until left and right images overlap in the center. The center area should appear in 3D. You can also copy the entire image and paste it to Stereo Photo Maker for full screen viewing with zoom and pan ability or changing the 3D viewing technique. This image pair from a lava cave or the purple lotus flower is good for beginners due to their simplicity.

As you may have noticed, these images are simply taken with some offset distance between them with a regular digital camera. Therefore it is also possible for you to use your regular camera to start making your own stereoscopic 3D photographs with the mentioned software and share.

Wishing you best of luck for your success on this very simple to make yet amazingly rewarding technique.

What's the story behind this? Nice 3D effect...

Yesil bilgi levhasinin yaklasik Turkce cevirisi;

1980'lerde yasanan tarimsal faciaya istinaden tum ciftci ve tarim ile ilgili islerde calisanlara adanmistir.

The Green Sign says;

Dedicated to All farmers and AG-related Business Folks that have lived through the "Agricultural Crash" of the 1980's

To best of my knowledge; back then the small farmers were unable to compete with the larger cooperations that were in the same business and buying out the smaller ones. May be someone with better knowledge can shed more light on this for the benefit of everyone.

Yes it was interesting to do the 3D of this monument :) Thanks for your kind comments Leskra. Volkan

Volkan, you've got very nice stereo photos! Do you use special equipment (Fuji camera or something) - or you just make two photos one after another? Why don't you upload your stereo photos to some 3D sharing galleries like Phereo so that thay can be viewed with 3D TVs and 3D glasses?

Volkan Yuksel on August 31, 2010

Dear Basil Meier, thank you much for your appreciation to my work. I am using regular camera and taking two shots with horizontal distance between them.

As you may know, with cross-eyed 3D (aka X-3D) technique that I am using, I can see 3D directly from regular computer screens or prints. Yes of course with dedicated 3D screens it would be not bad (3D TV) but, since this X-3D technique doesn't require 3D glasses it doesn't have the limitations and expense associated with those 3D systems. Briefly, I am (and I think along with very many X-3D photographers) very happy with my current technique which is also very simple and "too good to be true but true".

In addition, with SPM, I can zoom and pan in full screen mode. Which enhances the 3D experience very much. And because Panoramio/Google Earth illustrating the Earth, I feel very comfortable and privileged sharing my 3D work here. However I will check the option you've mentioned and give some consideration to it.

Very best wishes from Chicago,

Volkan, thank you for your kind feedback! It's amazing how you obtain such a good quality of stereo pair when doing two different shots.

Yes, I know crossed-eye technique - I just thought that it would be nice if people with 3D capability could enjoy your photos with minor efforts. I myself like watching stereo images with my stereo monitor and I faced the lack of good stereo photos in web. That's why I think that it might be some kind of contribution to the community of stereo photography if you share your photos in some place that supports different types of stereo image display. As I said, I prefer phereo.com because you just upload your stereo pair - and they convert it like SPM does.

Hi Basil, I took your advice and created an account there :) Best wishes from Chicago, Volkan

Yeah, I've already browsed your IR 3D pictures! Is it real infra-red? How did you do that?

Volkan Yuksel on September 3, 2010

Hi Pasil,

My SONY DSC-H50camera alows me to take true Infrared photos using IR pass filters. I provided more details about it on this IR Shot. Best wishes for the weekend,
