    Abstract

    Looking through a window, the object behind the window is often disturbed by a reflection of another object. In the paper, we present a new method for separating reflections from a single image. Most existing techniques require the programmer to create an image database or require the user to manually provide the position and layer information of feature points in the input image, and thus suffer from being extremely laborious. Our method is realized by classifying edges in the input image based on the belonging layer and formalizing the problem of decomposing the single image into two layer images as an optimization problem easier to solve based on this classification, and then solving this optimization with a pyramid structure and deterministic annealing. As a result, we are able to accomplish almost fully automated separation of reflections from a single image.
