OverTheMoon1, If you haven't found him already, you should drop by LostInTheTriangle's profile. He like old churches down in Bermuda. Here's one of his from earlier this year, an unfinished church in St. George's: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=03650ff3-2ed0-426c-a5ba-8892235653ed Looking at his synths has taught me quite a lot and I think you'll like his work too. Mvitbras, you should add the synths you like to your favourites by clicking the little star next to a synth to help show people what you like here on Photosynth.

Great idea, will try and see

By jove, I believe you've got it! =] Great job with the highlights. The information in them adds quite a bit to the experience. The point cloud really began to take on the shape of the place in this version, too. Overhead view provides a good mental reference to the photos for those of us who aren't as familiar with the location. I wonder what happens if you make a new synth using all the photos that you used for this synth but adding the photos you took for earlier versions of the church in alongside them. =]

My best yet, very pleased with the effect! The village where this was taken has dissapeared. The site is rumoured to be haunted

I'm really encouraged to see how fast you're improving and these old churches are so rich. Thank you for sharing them with the rest of the world.

Think of it as taking photos for someone who wants to wander anywhere around the location on their own first. Then, secondly, take photos as though you were a tour guide, focusing on the really interesting bits and then quickly moving on to the next bit, wherever that is. Because you have already taken photos that show what the entire area is like, the individual sights will have a nice place to rest inside the whole. The downside to this method of shooting is that you can very quickly fill up your camera's memory card or take so many photos that Photosynth will choke trying to put them all together, so try to think how to quickly and efficiently sketch out the major points of the overall structure with as few photos used as possible (but enough to let it hang together) so that you can get on to focusing on shooting the extra tasty bits that everyone will want to see. Again, this isn't mandatory Photosynth technique, but rather my own personal slant on things.

When attempting to connect two sides of a building that you have photographed, simply be certain that you have photos looking from the end of one side around the corner to the beginning of the next. This can be done from close or far away, as long as the transitional shots are not too radically different (in distance or angle) to your existing photos. This is certainly a different way to think about taking photos, but if you can get the general shape of the building with structural photos such as I have described (and to some extent which you have already begun to take) then you can then take time to get the regular well composed shots of specific special bits of the location that strike your fancy that you would normally take to share with people (keeping in mind whether your structural shots are close enough to where you're standing to tie in with what you're focusing in on).

It would seem that you've answered your own question from the forum, at least in part. 73% synthy is a pleasant improvement. =) Having enough overlap between two shots for Photosynth to make the match is important, as you have demonstrated here, both with some good strong matches and a few close calls that didn't quite make the connection. If you want to attain 100% synthy, the most simple answer I can give you is that you must use the camera to show Photosynth how to get from any one of your photos to any other one of your photos. If you can get, say, ten photos of a surface from left to right (or vice versa) - it could be an entire side of a building (if foliage and surrounding structures permit you a clear view) or a small detail such as a window frame - Photosynth will have an excellent idea of the shape of the thing, and will be able to more easily recognise that same object from different angles.
