Dave,

Well seen and captured. I would have rotated the image anticlockwise, to restore verticals, in the process giving a better (in my opinion) composition.

I do quite a few in Photoshop. You loose a bit of the frame but it is usually not much.

Clematis Flower and Two Flower Buds

Continuing my excursion into daylight exposure, I found something appealing about this little grouping. Maybe there is something architectural about it.

A Close Look at Tree Paeony Rokit

I liked the crowded stamens around the stigma, especially for its stereo potential. The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro,1/60 at f16 ISO 400, sunlight, hand-held.

Roscoea auriculata a Not-So-Hot Ginger

This is a Ginger, differing from the tropical ones in living in the mountains of the Himalayas of Tibet, etc.

The stereo is crosseye.

Olympus EM-1. Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro, 1/13 at f11 ISO 400, daylight, hand-held.

Re: Communal flowers, trees, plants and fungi thread

Cactus Gymnocalycium saglione with 3D

These flowers tend to be distorted by the stiff, surrounding spines, but they are rather beautiful.

Olympus EM-1, Olympus 4/3 50mm f2 macro at f13, hand-held in daylight.

The stereos are crosseye.

Harold, those are fabulous hand held shots. Forgive my ignorance but can you tell me what "the stereos are crosseye" means ?

Regards,

John

It's a method of viewing 3D images by literally crossing your eyes. The two images are taken from a slightly different lateral position and the left image is displayed on the right and the right one on the left. If you look at the pair with your eyes crossed (as in looking at your own nose) you see (it is claimed ) a third image in the centre which is in 3D. It is one of those "tricking your brain" things. Personally I can never get it to work and at best get a headache and at worst trigger a vertigo attack and I regard it as one of those "don't try this at home" things. I suspect it is one of those things you need to start training for when your eyes are younger and more flexible.

You will find a less "tongue in cheek" explanation if you scroll down in this article. http://www.instructables.com/id/3D-S...c-Photography/

Regards.
