The SIR2 Benchmark Dataset

We propose the Single Image Reflection Removal(SIR2) Benchmark Dataset with a large number and a great diversity of mixture images, and ground truth of background and reflection. Our dataset includes the controlled scenes taken indoor and wild scenes taken outdoor. One part of the controlled scene is composed by a set of solid objects, which uses commonly available daily-life objects (e.g. ceramix mugs, plush toys, fruits, etc.) for both the background and the reflected scenes. The other parts of the controlled scenes use five different postcards and combines them in a pair-wise manner by using each card as background and reflection, respectively. The wild scenes are with real-world objects of complex reflectance (car, tree leaves, glass windows, etc), various distances and scales (residential halls, gardens, and lecture room, etc), and different illuminations (direct sunlight, cloudy sky light and twilight, etc.).

The overall size of the data is 186 MB

To ease the downloading, we separate the modalities of the samples into different files.
The size of each modality is shown in the below table:
