Paul, you do it with different lenses actually almost with every lens, so i doubt it's the lens or your PP that creates the 3D effect, it seems like partial sharpening? You know i love your shots

Uzay,
I'm not really familiar with post processing....
I'd love to learn how to do partial or selective sharpening though ...

Does this image have any 3D feeling?

I went through most of the 3D discussions in this forum, understood few things & hope to understand all other factors soon ().

Maybe a bit in parts, but overall no. This is a good case of the composition inhibiting 3Dness --- the top half of the photo is just a flat black block; perhaps with more light/detail there, the perspective lines would help "connect" the top to the bottom half and make the depth more apparent.

Thanks for your feedback. I'll be more careful next time. It was a handheld shot and I think, I was concentrating too much on the benches while shooting as I was sure that part of the image would show some 3D.

Umm, can I play?
I think this has the elements of POP. Yashica 50mm F2 ML on Canon 7D, wide open.

Definitely, this thread needs more images and less hot air! Good one! Bokeh looks a little distracting but not too bad! I love the colors! Here's one from me:





Nikkor AF 18-70mm f3.5G ED @70mm WO.

Interesting thread. After quickly going through these pages, a few stood out to me as having this 3D depth.

First page, second shot by Makten.
Paul Yi's 4th shot
Andens shot of the wall
Denoirs 2nd Shot
Bifurcators shot on last page.

Interesting to note, most had metallic subjects that looked 3D to me.

also for me some pictures create the illusion of 3D for me. from my lenses it is:

rokkor 85 1.7 (probably due to the strong difference in sharpness between focus and background)

and some pictures with the ultron 40 2.0 at 2.0, also very very sharp in focus. here it is especially, that you image some 3D effect due to a consequence of the perspective:

hm ...

nikanon3, for me your pictures are "normal". they do not have the 3D (for me).

.. here it is only the big difference in sharpness... and the background is not too much blurred.

it is a difficult topic.

it is just an illusion, since the fotos are clearly 2D. but once i read, that 10% of the people cannot notice 3D in the real world - ... so, how can they have that illusion.... very difficult ... could be different from person to person ...
