My friend, Macrolepiota procera talks to extramundi:
"Hi Felipe! I know You've seen me so many times, on the ground and on photos, too, but have You ever seen me on 3D anaglyphe image? Here I am now! You need red-blue, or red-green glasses to fully enjoy 3D effect. I see You liked the "normal" version of my photo, so this is something extra to You, extramundi - and to everyone else, of course. Feel free to write any critique / comment, but please take Your special glasses on before doing that, because an anaglyphe image doesn't work as a normal photo. Cheerz"

This is what the mushroom said, I'm coming only here with the technical side. Did 2 photos (left and right) and put together with AnaMaker 1.0.8. This seems like a very simple thing, but it isn't: if You move too less, or too much between the photos, 3D effect will either be less or more than the optimal, and You cannot correct it with software, so the anaglyphe image will not be useful. Same happens if that was any wind between the 2 shots. And so on...

Anyway, I truly hope there will be at least a few people looking at this image with special glasses, because I like anaglyphe photography very much, and this kind of photos are very rare, even here on the Trek-sites.

Hello Laszlo,
Just a suggestion my friend:
I'm not sure most of us have 3D glasses so we can fully enjoy this kind of image?
Maybe post the treated image as workshop to the original, which we all can fully enjoy!
Pablo -

Wow; that really pops out in 3D if you have some filters handy. I used a red gel for my left eye, and a blue one over my right. It's worth noting that you need to get the filters the right way around though; obvious when you think about it, but still ;)

Focus is good; DOF seems pretty much perfect, the background is OOF and so feels natural when looking at it in 3D as we don't usually see the background sharply when we're looking at objects close to us.

The only thing I'm not so keen on are the blown out patches of sky between the trees, the trees to the right of the frame look more solid so I might have been tempted to shoot a little further from the left if it carried on like that to get rid of those patches if possible.

Despite the minor nit, it's a very nicely executed 3D image; I'm sufficiently keen on it that it's making me contemplate experimenting with that technique myself. Now wouldn't that be an interesting challenge, building a 3D, z-stacked, HDR panorama!

When you post things like this, you must send me a message!!!
This one is great, I had to make my glasses with a plastic cover and permanent marker :) They are not as clear as I would like, but I can see the effect well... and I thought I had seen everything on mushroom photography ;)
Very well done, for me Forest scene with mushroom is also one of my favourite from your gallery.
Best regards, Felipe.
PD: Sure it must be hard to calculate the displacement of the cam for th 2 shots...
