Comment on the selection of geometry of images for image fusion

In the original paper

Xiaobo Qu, Jingwen Yan, Guofu Xie, et al. A Novel Image Fusion Algorithm Based on Bandelet Transform. Chinese Optics Letters,Vol.5,No.10,pp:569-572, 2007

the geometry of two source images are selected by maximum rule. I think it only works well for multi-focus image fusion since the geometry may looks like each other. In fact, comparion on which geometry is greater is meaningless since it denotes the direction.

So, you'd better chang the rule to get the geometry of fused image from the source images. Especially for the source images whose structure are very different to each other.
