• The judges and I seem to be of the same mind. You might try reaching David Kesner here:

    Wow, I didn’t expect to actually win. The image is a real place and not a museum. It is located in Idaho City, Idaho, USA. You can see more of this place in either cross-eye or parallel stereo on my flickr site

    The image is a tonemapped HDR image using Photomatix software. Each side is a combination of five exposures and was taken with a Pentax K10D on a Jasper slide bar.

    Thanks to Neil, Loreo, and all the other participants.

  • David, congratulations!
    Your Stereo is very good. Do You use a special software to mount Your photos (such as stereo photo maker)?
    My stereo is no. 10 – if You like to see more, please visit

    Also thanks to Neil and Loreo, the viewer works well.

    Thank you Jan-Dierk.

    I use Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 for most all my graphic work including stereos, anaglyphs, and phantograms. I like the manual control. If I was shooting a large volume of digital stereo I would probably use SPM for the initial batch conversions, but still finish in PSP. I recently acquired CS3 Extended and am in the process of learning the keystrokes and short cuts.

    My real passion is macro stereo and I will be adding images to my flickr site soon. I use an RBT Macro stereo camera and you can see me using it on the main page of my website (which is still under construction):

    I came across your images when I was looking at Sasha Becher’s. I really admire people like you and Sasha that can manipulate the window in such a creative fashion. Had you submitted one of those images you would have blown mine away and won this “contest”.

    The ISU (International Stereoscopic Union) is having its bi-annual Congress in Gmunden, Austria September 9-14, 2008. Will you be attending? Here is the website for more information:

  • David, Your equipment is very impressive, and I am looking forward to see Your macro stereos in flickr.
    Because the ISU congress in Austria is in 2009 (not 2008!), I have not yet decided if I go there, but i will try. Gmunden is not very far from Munich, were my wife lives (I live in Brunswick/Braunschweig).
    Greetings from Jan

    Sorry, the ISU is in 2009. In 2007 it was held jointly with the NSA (National Stereoscopic Association) Convention here in Boise, Idaho. I was the chair of that joint event.

    Yes, the RBT macro is quite a piece of equipment and it required that I refinance my house to be able to afford it. Some people buy sports cars, or boats, or go on lavish vacations, I chose to spend it on stereo equipment *{;-) However it was, and is, the only macro stereo camera of its kind that allows variable magnification, variable stereo base, stereo viewfinder, and TTL flash exposure.
