This is a 3D photo pair of the little town of Morcote on Lake Lugano, taken from a ferry. I took two successive photos, and because the boat was moving, they were taken several metres apart, instead of a few centimetres. This gives a super stereo effect: it's how a giant would see Morcote from this distance. The Church of Santa Maria del Sasso is prominent above the town.
To view this in 3D you should cross your eyes until the two photos coincide. It may help to hold a finger a few centimetres in front of your face and focus on it, with the photo in the background. Then try to focus on the photo while looking cross-eyed.

Une magnifique paire de photos stéréo qui m'intéressent beaucoup. Je me demande si c'est une inspiration de "istanbulphotos". qui publie des photos en stéréo. Le site est merveilleux et idéal pour ce genre de présentation. Je n'ai pas de difficulté à voir en stéréo pour avoir pris des photos aériennes pour mon travail et qui étaient toujours en stéréo.
Toutes mes félicitations,

Indeed, thanks to the distance between two photo points the 3D effect is much stronger than usual. And thus well worth showing.
And Morcote is a beautiful village on the edge of Lago di Lugano. The weather is lovely too.

I see alone a little bit differ between the colour, but very well done.
A splendid perspective and depth picture too, and panorama view about these area.
Very well sharpness and clarity, we see all details.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Many compliments for this superb take in stereo that I could perfectly see, according to your instructions, without any viewing device. A friend of mine is an intense enthusiast of the technique and taught me: The farther the target, the more space is needed between the lenses; and the contrary for near subjects.
That's why I congratulate you for the judicious time lapse between the two exposures for real-life view on this sumptuous cathedral and verdant environment.
See you soon, I hope!
