Hi Jack and Raphael, really good photos. Never realised that bees could get mites though.

Regards Nick.

I'm very impressed by both the macro work and the stereoscopic images.

Some really interesting photos and topics in here. I'm aware I don't post much, mainly lurk, but a followup to my camera phone photos a fair few pages back. This time on the proper camera, with some very bad quality extension tubes (Bang good, one fits the camera correctly but is too long for this job, the others don't)

Raphael correctly identified carnivorous plants, these are pigmy sundews, drosera roseana. I tried taking a few others, but these seem to be a better subject (read... deal with my lack of skill!).

They are just getting ready to flower it seems (they are fairly new to me grown from gemmae last autumn and all do a bit of their own thing) and catch naturally.

Found this while browsing through some old (personal) pics. Parallel viewing (complete with window "violation" )

Bandersnatch,

I couldn't resist for those who view things cross-eyed.

Hi Sam, this one looks back to front to me but Banersnatch's one is really good, which still makes your clock ones a mystery. The top view I can see with the photos both ways, the full view one when I look at it is strange as it looks rather flat overall, however the left hand back foot seems to be almost in front of the clock face but not in front of the other three feet, which seem to be flat with the face. Other parts of the full clock seem to be trying to stand out when I'm not looking at them directly, it's very strange. Swapping the two pictures of the full clock, I can see it clearly with and without my stereoscope.

Regards Nick.

Hi, yesterday as I was coming indoors for lunch, I spotted the little spider in the photo below, on a piece of rusty angle iron sunbathing. So I quickly went indoors, washed my hands and grabbed my EOS 40D camera and my new 35mm macro lens and took the photo, however I could only get a good view at an angle of this little chap, who as it was, measured 15mm wide by 10mm high, so if it was on a 5p coin, might just about reach the edge with all it's legs outstretched. Of course taken at an angle, it was not possible to get everything in focus.

A few days ago though, I took a picture of the sixpence that I took before with my phone camera and the clip on close up lens. This photo is also with my EOS 40D and my new 35mm macro lens and is the closest I could get while keeping it in focus. This was with the morning sunlight coming in through the window. I think it can be seen that it is a much closer photo than the other one and very much superior and more uniform.

Although these two photos have been resized, they have not been cropped or altered in any other way.

Regards Nick.

Nick,

Try your method on this pair.

clock-pair---parallel-viewing.jpg

I've swapped them left to right for parallel viewing. When I view them my (cross-eyed) way, bits of the image are in the wrong place.

Great photographs everyone.

Isn't this thread amazing?

Sam

PS - Raphael, I haven't forgotten about the bellows question.

PPS - Bandersnatch, I had to look up 'Windows Violation'. Guilty too!

Windows Violation simply means that some parts of the stereo view protrude forward of the stereo window. Purists tend use the term a bit pejoratively maintaining that it shouldn't be allowed.

I don't think it hurts occasionally - it can work quite well on some shots - but it can be overdone. It happened by accident on this one because of a rushed cropping job on the originals and doesn't work particularly well.

t was a stock-in-trade with old 3D movies and gained a (deservedly) bad reputation.

Hi Sam, that works fine in free view and with my stereoscope.

Perhaps it's just me but no matter how I look at the stereo images or for how long, they just remain as a pair of imagesfrown

Hi John, I had this problem for a while and I can't seem to do it on my laptop computer. Looking at them on my phone is the best way I've found, but I had to look and relax my eyes beyond my phone but keeping the images in view. Now however, I find it easier to hold my phone up to my nose in between the images and slowly move it away while concentrating on the unfocused image in the middle until it comes into focus. Takes a little practice, but with a bit of perseverance should be doable.

Regards Nick.

Thanks Nick, tried that until arms got tired holding phone at eye level. Unfortunately no joy. Will keep trying, I don't think my vari-focal glasses help much. Cheers

I can't do it either. the best I got was with the clock but I got three images. I had cataracts done three years back.

Three images is correct for free-viewing, Roy yes

Now you need to concentrate on the middle one and ignore the other two.
