DSC06337 X-3D Boston at Night SW view - 30/11/07

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

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.

Metin Bey, bu fotograf cifti bir onceki fotografin 3 boyutlu versiyonu. Bu iki fotografi 3 adet gorecek kadar sasi baktiginizda, merkezdeki goruntunun 3 boyutlu oldugunu goreceksiniz. GE 3 boyutlu fotograflari genellikle secmiyor. Ama 3 boyutlu gorenbilenleri bu guzellikten mahrum etmek istemedim :)

Ilgilenirseniz 3 Boyutlu fotografcilik ile ilgili ile ilgili bilgi paylasimi yaptigimiz basligi da inceleyebilirsiniz.

Ilginize tesekkurler, selamlar, Volkan

Very nice chinatown park. However, in order for me to see your parallel view 3D pairs, I have to download and convert to cross eyed 3D viewing using the SPM utility. Cheers, Volkan

Yes Chinatown Park, all of my 3D work is purely for cross eyed viewing including this one. We refer to this type X-3D which I perhaps should tag them accordingly. But I didn't want to clatter tagging system unnecessarily in the past. Now it appears that it could be useful to prevent confusion.

When the images are in wrong order for cross eyed viewing, our brain perceives the near objects far, and far objects near. This can cause smoke coming out of our ears :)

I suggest that you should have the new beginners try with less complex images like the turtle pair in out 3D support and share page. Cheers, Volkan

Chinatown Park, if you allow me I will repeat the principles of X-3D. When we are looking to something within our arms reach, our eyes automatically converge to point of attention by crossing the eyes. Of course each eye is seeing slightly different image for obvious reason, with that, our brain is perceiving the scene in 3D.

So what we learned this far is; our eyes gets crossed when we look at something near and perceive this in 3D.

Knowing this natural behavior of our eyes; I prefer the cross eyed viewing technique like many other 3D community members of Panoramio agrees. According to this technique photo taken from LEFT goes to RIGHT and of course the photo taken from the RIGHT goes to LEFT.

Therefore when we look cross eyed to the pair sufficient enough to make an overlap, the LEFT eye sees the LEFT image and the RIGHT eye sees the RIGHT image and 3D perception begins.

As you know I am not a military aerospace intelligence person or spy with a dedicated airplane and camera for this purpose. Therefore my aerial 3D images can contain imperfection associated with non parallel shift movement due to flight path or altitude differences between the shots.[even Volkanzilla is not perfect:)] The Colorado Airpoto may contain all these. So don't make judgment on your abilities based on that image. Judge your abilities on simpler scenes like I mention earlier. If you have no problem with the turtle or the lifeless model or your own ones then you are OK.

Cheers, Volkan
