About the Image(s)

This image was taken using FinePix REAL 3D W3 camera; F-stop f/3.7, shutter speed 1/60; ISO-800 with fill-in flash. The image was auto-aligned in SPM, corrected the exposure, saturation and denoice using photoshop. To avoid shadows on the wall a light was put behind the idol.

A well set up table top with good stereo placing the three objects in their respective positions. With placing lighting behind it gives the impression that there is nothing behind and keeps the attention onto the idol.   Posted: 06/12/2020 15:29:35

Superb. The dharma of this image is very auspicious, since Ganesha's relevance to the worlds of art and science is well celebrated. The puja of your image is strong, with well placed elements of water and rooted plants, as well as astute lighting, which removes the difficulty of background distraction. The mouse hides well, doubly expressing the calming nature of the image.
Removing the background distraction has however limited the perceived depth. A slightly more hyper base, and a small push back from the window might stretch the depth a bit.
Ganesha was the subject of the first lenticular image I ever purchased, and blesses my home and workplace. Thank you for sharing your devotion.   Posted: 06/13/2020 12:50:50

Mohanan, You have produced a very nice table top. I like your idea of placing a light behind the idol to eliminate shadows; I always have that problem. It is interesting that I can view both stereo pairs with parallel viewing and the idol is in the back or front.   Posted: 06/13/2020 16:59:43

Thanks Nick. I did not notice the effect of viewing both stereo pairs with either Parallel or cross eye view with respect to the idol. (But leaves get the wrong effect.)   Posted: 06/24/2020 09:49:05

Great image with no "W3" shadows. Well done. Sorry about not commenting, but I have been preparing images for three PSA sequences and the PSA Exhibition.   Posted: 06/24/2020 16:13:23
