Wow! I aspire to be that detailed in my synths. :)

A work of art. I don't know art, but I know what I like. Syths like this (and there are many others) push the possibility boundries further each time. And they inspire others like myself. Thank you.

Charlie -- now that you can modify the starting image and add highlights, you could make this a lot easier to "get in to". How about it?

TonyErnst (Over 1 year ago)
Brilliant!

P.S. I've given up on my wife, she hates computers altogether.

jimcseke (Over 1 year ago)
My second oldest son is coming down for the holidays. I've talked to him about photosynth, as I have to many other people. So far not one single person has even attempted to check it out. It seems like you have to drop a computer in front of some people and say "Look at this. This is something that you could do." Anyway back to my son. In my "favorites" I have some synths which I plan on showing him. Basically I will be sitting him in front of my computer and telling him that this is something he could do. Of those synths I will be showing him, yours will be among the ones I know will impress him. And hopefully he will become a synther like his Dad. I also have an older son and a younger daughter I plan on ambushing with this site and your synths. Just thought i'd let you know.

Hey CharlPe thank you for answering my questions. I am interested in what the process was for achieving certain results. And not just for general knowledge, but also on the human level. When you mentioned Sipapu took 3 hours, In my mind I see a person starting from one point of the subject to the final shot. Suddenly each of those little white rectangles take on more meaning. They become the eyes of the person travelling around this subject and attempting to get enough images to share with others. And to also give them a sense of "being there". I hope those comments don't seem odd, but i'm just being honest. Getting 100% is one thing. Capturing what you did, and how it turned out, is another. (That should also be considered a "point of pride".) I'm fairly certain, when you saw the final result, there was a little jaw dropping involved. As with your other synths, beautiful work as well! Whatever you do to get these results, you do very well. Keep on synthing.

CharlPe (Over 1 year ago)
Thanks for the kind words. Here's some answers: Sipapu took about 3 hours to shoot - that's while I was hiking and enjoying the area. I didn't cull the photos all that much - I just included pretty much everything. There were a few really out-of-focus shots that I deleted. Yes, I re-did the synth once to ensure I got it up to 100% "synthy." It took me a little while to figure out which images weren't working, then I went back and removed the offending pixels. Getting 100% "synthy" is a point of pride.... :-)

jimcseke (Over 1 year ago)
Beautiful photos and the point cloud is incredible. Questions: (and do not answer if you don't have the time) How long did this shoot take? If 734 photos made the final cut for your synth, approximately how many photos did you originally take? And did you upload your photos more than once and edit until you got 100 percent? The upload time must have been crazy. I have had 100 percent synth on the first upload, but with a third of the photos you have here.Even then it was blind luck. However, what ever it took for you to produce this, it was well worth the effort. I am quite new to this site, and to photography. I love the forms found in nature, and I think this site forces us to look more and closer at our subject. I take a lot of photos, and among them I sometimes find images "suitable for framing" that I would not have taken, were it not for the Photosynth process. Again, Thank you for this beautiful work and please, keep on synthing.

Indeed. Some highlights might help with navigating around and seeing all the goodness.

OK. I added a geotag for it on the airport, but from the top of the airport terminal, I'm not certain it'll help. The mural is (I think,) on the Northeast quadrant of the main airport terminal on the baggage claim/main floor of the terminal. Next time I go out I'll note the exact location.

dariusmonsef (Over 1 year ago)
Holy mother of colorful point clouds! That one turned out really well. We need to make it so you can geotag this on the airport map so I know where this is... I fly through Denver pretty often.

CharlPe (Over 1 year ago)
Thanks for the positive comment. No, I didn't use a tripod, but I think it would have been very, very helpful. I had to discard half my shots due to blurry imagery.

K (Over 1 year ago)
nicely done. you included a lot of detail shots, did you use a tripod for those?
