This synth consists of photos taken by a camera aboard a payload hoisted to 95,000 feet by a meteorological balloon. We launched from the edge of Joshua Tree National Park in southern California. The synth will reveal far-off views of the Salton Sea, the Pacific Ocean, the Gulf of California, and more.

This is my first published synth, and I'd love any feedback. How can I make my next synth better? Thanks!

Great idea!  My only suggestion is to order the synths so that it in the order of the pictures, so you ride the balloon up.

I always love the balloon synths. Great work! 

Here's your synth in the original Direct3D viewer (requires Internet Explorer or Firefox 3 http://bit.ly/vintagefirefox on Windows)

dhaines' suggestion is a good one, however it will only affect the Silverlight viewer. 

To navigate the photos in alpha-numeric order in either Direct3D or Silverlight, you can use your full stop key [.] to step forward and the comma key [,] to step backward.
