For all observers in their study, those parts in the image that had a higher luminance were consistently interpreted as being nearer. Christou and Koenderink (1997) also concluded that even with images of simple ovoid shapes, subjects’ settings of surface attitude were systematically biased in the illumination direction, and were consistent with a regression to image luminance gradients. That is, dark parts are perceived as deeper and brighter parts of the objects are perceived as being closer.
The dark gray areas are convex, the black areas are hyperbolic and the light gray areas are concave. The jagged white lines show the positions of the parabolic curves of the real, physical shape are, which were the same for both objects.
