Shroud Scope triumphs again

Those of you who have been following this series of posts using the magnificent Shroud Scope will probably have noticed that I have played around a little with brightness and contrast. My favourite multipurpose setting in MS Office Picture Manager is the one I call (-7,100,15). The figures represent brightness/contrast / mid-range values respectively, and were originally chosen to get best differentiation between body image and those (dubious) blood stains.

I got to wondering a few minutes ago how the entire body image would look using those same optimised settings. Here’s the result. Click to enlarge.

Frontal and dorsal views (-7,100,15 brightness/contrast/mid range values respectively)

Can these  Shroud Scope pictures, using the Durante 2002 option, be bettered? I doubt it, but if anyone thinks otherwise they are invited to post their pictures here, assuming they are allowed to do so.

I shall now put the above picture into Image J, light/dark reverse and see how it responds to 3D as well.
