Paper Abstract

The Paper addresses the general concepts of what we consider as images and how we see them. The way in which the eye and brain see and interpret images is a vital part of the analysis of photonic records. While the eye is a remarkable organ, it does have limitations which have extremely important ramifications on the way images are analyzed and obtained. Also discussed are the ways in which the photographer can attempt to present the analyst with the most useful image by adapting the way in which the image is obtained and presented. It makes the point that the photographer and the sponsor/analyst must work closely together to obtain the best results from each project. Brief mention is made of the ways in which imaging may progress in the future, but emphasizes how ultimately we only appreciate these images, however produced, when they are carried to our brains via the eyes.
