Topic: moving 'through' a floor?

Hello, I had a hole in my living room floor.I took some photos from the cellar beneath and in the living room above and overlapped them somewhat. I was hoping to achieve a synth whereby one could move through the hole, however this doesn't happen! IT does jump from a couple of pictures from the living room right into the cellar (Idon't know why it does this) but it doesn't seem to be able to move from the cellar to the living room. 
Any ideas anyone?
Thanks

For those that didn't find the synth, it's here: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=5997f99a-60cd-48b9-a17e-148dccee2cb0

archaeosynth: First off, this is really, really cool.  What holds the basement and living room together is the roman shade in the bay window.  The texture on it is great for the synther.  You need something just like this to link two rooms together - something with nice texture that can be seen from both rooms.  The reason the rooms are not linked more strongly is that you only have one good shot of that shade from inside the room.  (The second one is a little blurry)
As a general rule, you need 3 shots of anything to make it synth.  Unfortunately it's probably been moved since you last took these photos, so to get it to connect more strongly, you'll need to re-shoot it from the basement and from the living room.  Just add about 3 shots of that shade from the basement and 3 from the living room from similar angles and you should be set!
