In this correspondence, we present a general recursive approach for image segmentation by extending Otsu's (1978) method. The new approach has been implemented in the scope of document images, specifically real-life bank checks. This approach segments the brightest homogeneous object from a given image at each recursion, leaving only the darkest homogeneous object after the last recursion. The major steps of the new technique and the experimental results that illustrate the importance and the usefulness of the new approach for the specified class of document images of bank checks is presented
