    Hi all,
    Does anyone have any advice or thoughts on open cv? I've been tinkering about with the python interface over the last few days (mashed hand means no farming !)

    I've Jan Erik Solems book which is quite good and has enabled me to open images, blur them and fart about with them. The chapter on the open cv interface is quite short though.

    I get the impression that open cv is a very good tool if you can use it, I tried to learn c++ a couple of years ago, maybe I had the wrong book but I found it very dry going, with python I can get useful things working quite quickly.

    My general question is should I carry on with the python interface (theres a new book out here in the uk in a couple weeks) or is it worth having another try at c++? There are many more books covering using open cv in c++.

    I would like to be able to pick out semi circles in a image, with some gausien blurring and a sobel filter they really stand out but I don't know how to pick out the coordinates?!

    Thanks Geoff
