This little patch of green and pink was only ~6 inches (~15cm) tall, but struck my fancy as a miniature metropolis filled with skyscrapers and towers of various heights, minarets, cupolas (a shame the penthouse at right was out of focus though).
I thought it would be neat, as an experiment, to try to blur the background (1st pic). To do this in accurate 3D, of course, would require depth maps. I used Masuji Suto’s StereoPhoto Maker to create the depth maps shown in the 3rd pic (produced also using Ugo Capeto’s DMAG software) from the original stereopair (4th pic). I then touched up the depth maps and originals a bit by hand, and used ImageMagick to apply the depth maps as blur maps upon the originals, yielding the 1st pic here.
For kicks, the 5th pic here is a 3D version of the occlusion maps produced by SPM/DMAG during the depth map creation process.
