    Rerendering Landscape Photographs



    We present an approach for realistic rerendering of landscape photographs. We first extract a view dependent depth map from single input landscape images by examining global and local pixel color distributions and demonstrate application in novel viewpoint renderings. For relighting, we assume diffuse reflectance and relight landscapes by estimating the irradiance due the sky in the input photograph. Finally, we also take into account specular reflections on water surfaces which are common in landscape photography and demonstrate relighting of scenes with still water.
