Re: Pulling depth out of 2D Graphics:

Hi, Don and Min,
Thank you for viewing these two examples and for your comments.

Again, many thanks.

Re: Boys & Hay - How To Play Without Electronics

Hi, Min,
There was a recent discussion somewhere of “evocative” images. These images must be unequivocally evocative to almost everyone of that exact period of childhood!
Love ‘em!

Re: 'Destination Unknown'

Dave, That’s a gripping image! He’s focused on your lens but his mind is thousands of yards beyond, thinking three chords and right hand thumb/finger riffs ahead. Every one of your thoughts and concerns are so valid! My first thoughts are do his parents know where and how he is...and does he know ho...

Re: Joy at sunset

Hi, Matt,

I thought it a lovely image at first glance...and the little scene of the child tossed in the air is a wonderful lagniappe.

Re: The Fence Goes On Forever

Hi, Matt,

To my eye the path of the fence is strongly enhanced by the beautiful undulation of the counterposed dips in the terrain.
Good eye!

Re: Strings

Hi, Matt, I especially like #2,but have been slow to respond until I figured out why I was still a bit uneasy about it.

Pulling depth out of 2D Graphics: I find it interesting how even 2D graphic artworks can supply monocular depth cues to depth perception that can be utilized to produce stereo image pairs. Here are a couple of examples. Your comments and critiques are requested. Dave 69DC59D2-9DC0-4B84-9D35-943C504B...

Re: Walk This Way
