3-d_rendering_of_a_2-d_test_chart #1

Just put somethin in front to make it 3D :-) Yet - why would you want to bet the correction of a lens on a wall? Ever examined a wall with a water level? Oops.

Let me disappoint you by saying that I did not test the camera or lens with this shot. Which wouldn’t quite deliver given I couldn’t swap the lens w/o sacrificing the camera. I was simply intrigued by shapes and colors of the scenery. And I figured that the wall itself was not actually flat or precise enough to go calibrate a lens for distortion correction from there. Yet, I like the irony within as seemingly there are folks relying on brick walls. With your challenge, the structures in front of the call also came handy to serve the theme.

As far as the modern trend of “3d rendering” is concerned – could it be that this comes with an increased compression of mid-gray tonality (i.e. more contrast just there) plus stronger blacks in the context of sensor DR exceeding that of monitors and printers today? Just a thought.
