just a snap from car-but a new 3D tweak for Critique

Just a snap from the driver’s seat of my parked car..but a range of depths that inspired a new tweak of one of my earlier 3D conversion methods.
I’m hoping those able to view stereo pairs will C&C the stereo effect.

Re: Why I Don't Use Waders In the Swamp

I think they are exc3llent images, Min. Were I there (I’m assuming you are on the boardwalk you occasionally include in your swamp images) I would try to observe the old rule about getting down to your subject’s eye level by using my camera’s articulated display screen in the “waist level” position....

Re: willet

Hi, Piet,
Composite or not; it is a wonderfully dynamic, impactful image, which, I must presume was your intent.
To my eye, you certainly met your self-imposed goal.
It’s a winner!

Re: Profile Portrait

Looks good minniev..some understandable haloing here and there but no deal breaker..... I haven’t learned how to fix haloing on the iPad, only how to create it :) . I can fix it at home tho, and I’ve found some tools that may help me fix it on the ipad, just haven’t figured out exactly how to use t...

Re: How To Make An Osprey

My boat venture on the Pascagoula River brought me close to several osprey subdivisions, and one couple, having finished their spring remodeling, was in the mood to start their family. Birds mating behaviors (and anatomy) are not exactly like other animals. All suggestions appreciated. Already heav...

Re: Sandhill Cranes

Nice series, Chuck.
From your narrative it sounds like you learned a lot on your first trip to the Platte for Sandhills!
Evidence of your self-education shows !

Maybe we could arrange a meet-up along the Platte next year?

Re: Panogator

First time I've tried a panorama approach to a portrait. 3 shots stitched in LR. Gulf Islands National Seashore a few days ago. This is just one terrific image! The ‘gator at repose with its chin shoved up on the lodged branch as a “drift anchor” while “Its Fierceness” dozes. The scaled beast is se...

“The Spangled Shawl”

“The Spangled Shawl” Here’s an image out of the archives. I was posted elsewhere a few years ago. I post it here along with a 3D conversion accomplished with a recently developed conversion technique. Besides C&C on the posted image I would especially appreciate C&C on the 3D conversion. Thanks, Dave

Re: Hawk

Nice image, Frank!
Chuck has it nailed as a red-shouldered hawk. That russet and heavily streaked chest and belly plumage, and the banded tail differentiate it from a red-tailed hawk.

I like your perspective and composition!

Re: Pulling depth out of 2D Graphics:

Steve asks: why does the color still life by Harnett yield a better 3D effect than the seascape etching as noticed and mentioned by Don McVee? Likely for a several reasons unrelated to color vs. monochrome. The seascape rendering was accomplished via a relatively distant view by the artist that I pe...
