Does anyone know why on some pictures the stippling looks as if it is raised?

I didn't know the answer, but it was interesting reading about it, and I'm enjoying looking at the designs too. Cute!

Nothing wrong with your photographic skills. It is just a trick of the eyes due to your brain trying to interpret a 2D image to a 3D one. Think of Escher, part of his work depended on this phenomenon,.

Thank you for the explanation. Now I can no longer see the raised version.

So...Once and awhile I see a distortion in the photos when I enlarge them from raised stipple to not....but what does the actual stitch out look like? I am a bit confused as to what you are asking...I think the raised image is something temporary that happens sometimes when the photo is enlarged (?)

The photos are not enlarged and no matter what I do with them, they change from raised looking to normal. and back.
They are the actual stitch out.
My original intent was to ask whether I should use a stippling color close to the back ground material or use a contrasting color. I abandoned the idea since the colors in the pic are a lot more washed out then in reality. Just hoped someone could tell me how to take better pictures. Ha, ha

Very strange. I enlarged the pictures and watched and it changes from normal to raised. I have no explanation for this one. Hugs

Like Houdini. It will change back again. It is driving me bunkers.

I think it's because of the thread colors. The darker places in your variegated thread makes the photo appear to have raised spots. (Just my best guess)

P.S. I like the yellow one with the raised stippling. lol

What about the second pic? the stippling is very close in color to the back ground . Originally I was going to ask if a contrasting color would be better. No use with those pics.

Just to prove me wrong it changed and looks normal and then went back to the raised look again. It is making me crazy. My original intent was to ask for opinions, but with the colors so off that is useless. I think I need a photography class

No, you don't. It is just a trick of the eyes due to your brain trying to interpret a 2D image to a 3D one. Think of Escher, partof his work depended on this phenomenon,.
