Very nice. It's a great image even without the 3D. I do like how the reflections of the lights on the tile floor and the picture on the wall 'pop' in 3D.
I've found that slightly smaller photos, and adding a red dot between the images, can make merging the images simpler. If the viewer can see three images with one dot in-between each, then the center image may be easier to bring into focus and 'lock on', as you put it.
Not to hijack your thread, but here are some examples:
I did these in PowerPoint.
Canon Rebel XS (1000D)
18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS EF-S
75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 EF III
Wolters' Plastic Models Not exactly a photography site, but it does have lots of macro pics!
Nikon D60, 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 35mm f/1.8 lenses, DuraTran 818 Tripod and three others, Manfrotto monopod and head, Nikon SB-900 Autofocus and SB-R200 Wireless Remote Speedlight flashes, flash and camera filters, closeup auxiliary lenses, PhotoShop Elements 10
"maybe it's just my old eyes, but I found the red dot somewhat distracting and the resulting 3D effect somewhat compromised and harder to get focused."
I agree with this comment - find viewing these much easier without the dot.
Also, as far as the tree goes, this is not true 3D because, for example, the lights and other objects do not stay on the tree but appear at different depths in front of it. True 3D would bring the entire tree as a whole forward from the background.

I somewhat agree with the other two people as the dot seems a bit distracting for me. It may be a solution for those who have trouble, but I don't feel that I will be using it.
But, thanks for the suggestion.
Although I do appreciate any and all comments and critiques, I'm not sure I agree. When done correctly, the tree DOES come forward from the background. I don't know if maybe you're confused by the surrounding furniture on either side of the tree that is actually in front of the tree, but, to me, the lights look like they're exactly where they should be.
At least, that's what I see... exactly what I looked at when I stood in front of it.
But, thanks for the comment.
