The reverse trip from the same shoot is here: http://photosynth.net/preview/view/0a1a5d08-3fd5-4b0f-a0e1-6e9f59748934
but it's the same story, panning upward at the end, unfortunately. To be honest, the photos inside the capitol are some of my worst, but since you were talking about synth linking being actively worked on again, I wanted to extract slices of an old synth that was known to stick together and upload it as PS2 synths to see if I could get the whole experience linked in PS2.
Yeah, too bad. Both the Senate and the House were empty but had a velvet barrier across them most of the day when I shot this in 2010 and the janitorial staff were in there toward the afternoon and didn't want to be in my photos. I wasn't too sure how people would react to me taking all the photos I wanted so I was in a great hurry and unfortunately many of the shots turned out blurry but the overhead view of the lobby is largely intact in my original synth, even if a few pieces didn't integrate into Synth 0. http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=169ef35b-b685-4d03-a6b1-3aa379fa411c
I'd really like to shoot complete coverage in spherical panoramas with long exposures to blur out people, but need to get a Nodal Ninja tripod head first.
Hadn't noticed this one before, but I like it. Wish it had actually shown the interior of the senate rather than panning up to the signage :-)
