We investigate the shape of the Fresnel and Fourier holographic images reconstructed by a tilted plane wave. The image deformation occurs along the new viewing direction in the Fresnel hologram, which is well described as Affine transformation. When the Fourier hologram is placed in the front focal plane of the lens, the replicas of the image are formed without its deformation, whereas the image is deformed in case of the hologram located at a distance different from the focal length. This property is investigated through the numerical simulation based on the wide-angle diffraction phenomenon.
