The right frame has the pop

Nikkor 105/1.4E (with 105 DC) creates real 3D!

Of course, to make the stereo effect work well, I had to adjust the exposure to match as closely as I could. With that done, I would like to have some feedback about the microcontrast in each pane: Have a careful look, and post your opinion as to whether the left pane or the right pane has better microcontrast - or if you think they look about even.

With exposure adjusted it looks like the right frame definitely has more 3D pop, higher global contrast, and richer blacks. I think one would be hard pressed to conclude either had higher resolution. I really wish these were separated so we could A/B test them but I'd give the microcontrast edge to the right frame as the grooves in the wood seem more distinctly defined versus milkier on the left.

I still can't for the life of me do the cross-eyed stereo thing, though.
