Mirrored Images by Rosanne Catalano begins with a poem about, and dedication to, her late father and still-living mother. It then goes into a short story she wrote about an experience with bullying in the eighth grade of school to a story about being saved by a guardian angel when the story's character is in her mid 30's to another short story about a little boy who is abandoned by his mother when she starts dating a man who doesn't like children to yet another short story about how the author and her husband of 16 years met and fell in love to yet another short story about Christmas with her grandmother... The author shares ten of her short stories and two of her poems with you. An interesting read in which you may want to guess which of the short stories are fiction or fact. Rosanne's next book is titled 'Escape & Redemption, ' but it will be a crime fiction novel that will start off where this book leaves off with her short story titled "From Bags to Riches."

When a TV reporter is injured in a Dallas-bound jet crash, she enters a world of mistaken identity and political intrigue in this action-packed romantic suspense novel -- a Globe and Mail bestseller! The crash of a Dallas-bound jet isn't just a tragedy for TV reporter Avery Daniels; it's an act of fate that hands her a golden opportunity to further her career. But it also makes her the crucial player in a drama of violent passions and deadly desires. After plastic surgery transforms her face, Avery is mistaken for the glamorous, selfish wife of Tate Rutledge, the famous senatorial candidate and member of a powerful Texas dynasty. As she lays helpless in the hospital, Avery makes a shattering discovery: someone close to Tate planned to assassinate him. Now, to save him, she must live another woman's life -- and risk her own.

Many approaches have been proposed to solve the problem of finding the optic flow field of an image sequence. Three major classes of optic flow computation techniques can discriminated (see for a good overview Beauchemin and Barron IBeauchemin19951): gradient based (or differential) methods; phase based (or frequency domain) methods; correlation based (or area) methods; feature point (or sparse data) tracking methods; In this chapter we compute the optic flow as a dense optic flow field with a multi scale differential method. The method, originally proposed by Florack and Nielsen [Florack1998a] is known as the Multiscale Optic Flow Constrain Equation (MOFCE). This is a scale space version of the well known computer vision implementation of the optic flow constraint equation, as originally proposed by Horn and Schunck [Horn1981]. This scale space variation, as usual, consists of the introduction of the aperture of the observation in the process. The application to stereo has been described by Maas et al. [Maas 1995a, Maas 1996a]. Of course, difficulties arise when structure emerges or disappears, such as with occlusion, cloud formation etc. Then knowledge is needed about the processes and objects involved. In this chapter we focus on the scale space approach to the local measurement of optic flow, as we may expect the visual front end to do. 17. 2 Motion detection with pairs of receptive fields As a biologically motivated start, we begin with discussing some neurophysiological findings in the visual system with respect to motion detection.

Escape into the cosmos of uncoiling perceptions Explore the shape-shifting definitions of darkness and light Expand your awareness in a flight of poetic fancy. Scattering dreams, just beyond reach Lingering burning desires Float away Caustic ashes drifting to heaven Weightless ghosts no longer adhering To the gravity of reality turned upside-down
Unlike the mirrored sphere mapping, the angular map is not equal-area and does not translate solid angle proportionately into image area. Areas near the edge become stretched in the direction tangent to the circumference but are neither ...

High Dynamic Range Imaging, Second Edition, is an essential resource for anyone working with images, whether it is for computer graphics, film, video, photography, or lighting design. It describes HDRI technology in its entirety and covers a wide-range of topics, from capture devices to tone reproduction and image-based lighting. The techniques described enable students to produce images that have a dynamic range much closer to that found in the real world, leading to an unparalleled visual experience. This revised edition includes new chapters on High Dynamic Range Video Encoding, High Dynamic Range Image Encoding, and High Dynamic Range Display Devices. All existing chapters have been updated to reflect the current state-of-the-art technology. As both an introduction to the field and an authoritative technical reference, this book is essential for anyone working with images, whether in computer graphics, film, video, photography, or lighting design. New material includes chapters on High Dynamic Range Video Encoding, High Dynamic Range Image Encoding, and High Dynammic Range Display Devices Written by the inventors and initial implementors of High Dynamic Range Imaging Covers the basic concepts (including just enough about human vision to explain why HDR images are necessary), image capture, image encoding, file formats, display techniques, tone mapping for lower dynamic range display, and the use of HDR images and calculations in 3D rendering Range and depth of coverage is good for the knowledgeable researcher as well as those who are just starting to learn about High Dynamic Range imaging The prior edition of this book included a DVD-ROM. Files from the DVD-ROM can be accessed at: http://www.erikreinhard.com/hdr_2nd/index.html
The scene is imprinted in Lord Chandos's mind: I know not how oft Crassus with his lamprey enters my mind as a mirrored image of my Self, reflected across the abyss of centuries. But not on account of the answer he gave Domitius.

The city is an essential theme of modernity in literature, architecture, photography and film. This book first focuses on ardent reactions to the metropolitan explosion in the nineteenth century, with Baudelaire and Poe as key figures. More recent representations of the city are then investigated, in Europe and the United States. Lombardo reflects on the way in which the changes in human perception created by urbanization are expressed in the various arts, in terms of form and content.

Engaging the theme of appearance dissatisfaction expressed by women who had undergone cosmetic surgery, and its subsequent impacts upon body image and self-perception, this study concludes that shame and narcissism are interrelated processes, whereby the evaluations and amendments to appearance, and the notions of self and social acceptance which underpin it, are negotiated.
