Comparison of METHODS example 22.
The plant in panel A of both figures can be deduced to be the same plant. It is a small potted plant with brown coloring to the leaves. Both figures have the same chart on the wall to the left of the plant, and background window behind. The pattern on the leaves of the plant are identical as well as the matching position of the leaf formations. Both figures have a ruler placed to the left of the plant to allow for height estimation of the fauna. The picture in both figures is oriented horizontally.
Panel B is a different plant from panel A, and again is the same plant from figure to figure. It is a potted plant with white color alteration to the center of the leaves. There is a wooden flat top in front of the potted plant, as well as a lowered dirt section between the flat top and the windowsill behind. Again the ruler is to the left of the potted plant, and both figures can be viewed to identify matching key descriptive factors (coloration of the leaves, position and overhang of the plant above the pot, leaf distribution) that confirms both figure makers have found the same plant. In both figures the picture is oriented vertically.
Panel C for both figures is a final, third plant that has a purple color tinting the leaves. The plant seems to have much more purple color on the leaves towards the top of the plant, and more traditional green towards the bottom. Both figures have matching plants, framed by the dark wooden flat top in front, a lowered dirt enclosure and a windowsill behind. In this photo there is a tan clay pot to the back left of the plant, and the positioning, coloration and leaf health (holes and damage) match from plant to plant. There is a tag on the wooden flat top in front of the plant, that would most likely list the species of plant but it is not legible in either photograph. Its position in relation to the plant is identical in both figures. A ruler for height estimation is off to the left of the plant in both figures.
Panel A is taken from a much closer and lower angle to the plant. The pot is visible in the second figure, and not in the first. A human hand is visible holding the ruler on the left in the first Figure, while the second Figure is not suspended by anything in frame. The wooden flat top that is present in front of all of the plants is not visible in panel A of Figure 1, neither is the lowered dirt enclosure. Some of the lower leaves are not visible in the 1st Figure that are visible in the 2nd. Additionally, a tan wooden windowsill is visible behind the plant.
The photos for panel B are taken from opposing angles, the plant viewed from the right in Figure 1 and from the left in Figure 2. Figure 2 is taken from further back, and there is a tan potted plant visible to the right behind the center plant. The bars on the window behind are much more visible in Figure 2, and there is a name tag taped to the wooden flat top visible.
Panel C is notably different in that Figure 1 is a vertically oriented photograph and horizontal in Figure 2. The ruler is mostly obscured and out of frame in Figure 1, and the photographs are taken from different directions. Figure one is taken from the front, right side of the plant and Figure 2 is taken from the left. This changes what is visible, and the potted plant inthe background is much more visible in Figure 2.
Overall the picture quality is also different, with much higher saturation and fuzziness to the image quality of Figure 1. Figure 2 is much sharper, and has a colder image effect with more blue light hues than yellow. In all photos in Figure 2 they are taken from approximately the same difference from the subject, where the subjects in Figure 1 are variable from panel to panel. These may be attributed to camera type or quality, and hand dominance of the photographer. The demarcation of panels in Figure 1 and 2 is relatively the same in both figures, but consistently Figure 1 seemed slightly higher on the panel placement.
