Both the mondrian AND the specular scenes under one illuminant (157 KB)
(This is Figure 4.10 of Kobus's thesis).


8-bit TIFF images: specular_8_bit.tar.gz (31.6 MB)
(Recomended for most applications)

16-bit TIFF images: specular_16_bit.tar.gz (152.2 MB)
(The 16 bit images have only a small amount of extra data beyond the 8 bit images--the true dynamic range of the images is 9-10 bits).

This data was collected by Lindsay Martin, Kobus Barnard, and Adam Coath under the guidance of Kobus Barnard in Brian Funt's Computational Colour Vision Laboratory.
