DSC06089 Alien Rock Formations Cross Eyed 3D

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Hi, 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.

Hi 陳金山, thank you for your message. I am glad you're able to see my photos in 3D. Unfortunately with a non-stereoscopic cameras, there is always possibility of having undesirable differences between the sides because of the moving objects like water in the scene. And yes, it can be minimized or eliminated with clone brush of the Stereo Photo Maker. However, I leave the each side un-touched since each side is the true scene for the time it was taken.

Yes, when known objects are not in the scene, it is difficult to judge the size of the objects in the scene. But generally I tend to use a lot of base distance between the sides to emphasize the sense of 3D sense and I know it also causes us to feel the objects smaller then they actually are. This is because our brain thinks that objects that are perceived with very strong sense of 3D are closer to us than those which are far from us.

In summary once our brain has strong sense of 3D, it thinks that the object is very close and therefore small as well...

Best wishes from Palm Beach, Florida. Volkan
