I was looking for something to synth. My original intention was to try out all the functions of my camera (different white balances, different aperture, different picture styles and ect) but my father had seen the Doug synth by Tan_Nguyen, which has been very successful. He decided the unicorn was a far more interesting object and so we set it up on the white back of a calender, which itself was atop a grand piano. The lighting worked well, but it was very improvised - indeed, two of the lights usually served as bedside lights!

Despite that, I think the result was very good. The point cloud is spectacular, and there are at least four "rotation doughnuts". Here is the link:

I also made a cochin dragon synth, and it turned out well... Unfortunatly, I changed venues and programm decided to synth the wall. Apart from the unicorn, my best synth so far was the Bath Abbey (

BTW, I used TinyURL to save characters.

I couldn't fit this on the previous post, but about the Bath Abbey: The lighting and venue (and camera) were great... the only problem was, I was cold and I have a family promting my to go into the sanctuary of Starbucks Coffee. I only found out later that the best side to photograph was exactly the side I didn't photograph.

Good work Cardinal! The point cloud is one of the best I have seen!

This is a really well done synth.  Love the ability to rate around with a few different donuts... or is it doughnuts... either way, awesome job!

Thanks guys. BTW, I forgot to mention that I actually do have a synth which has the front of the Bath Abbey on it ( The photos weren't actually taken by me, rather by someone who went to Bath and knew that I wanted some photos of the front of the Bath Abbey. Unfortunately, because the photographer didn't know exactly where I had bee shooting from, I can't put the two together, but it turned out well anyway.
