Description

Be sure to use the highlights feature, this is a VERY big synth and thus hard to navigate!

Bermuda Church of the Most Holy Trinity, or 'The Cathedral' as it is known today, is not the original building. The first structure was started in 1844, completed in 1883, and then destroyed by an arsonist in 1884. The present-day Cathedral was designed by William Hay, its foundation stone laid on May 1, 1886, and the first phase completed in 1894. The church was commissioned as the Bermuda Cathedral that year, finally completed in 1905, and consecrated in 1911.

The plan of the church is a Roman Cross, and although the architecture is Neo-Gothic as opposed to bermudian, most of it is built of bermuda limestone from the Par-La-Ville quarry. However, the stone around the windows, doors, and the rings of the arches, cornices and gables, is Caen stone from Normandy, France.

Wow! 1396 and in less than 12 hours,thought I would be happy, but a few things did not work out the way I thought they would.

1: The point cloud on the interior is reduced in scale. This seems to be an ongoing problem for me and probably needs more linking from the outside to the inside.
2: I am not happy to say this but.............It's just too big (photosynth team, you are correct)makes for difficult navigation! (Thanks again for the Highlights feature, good fix this problem!)
3: I need to get more exterior coverage from the East, North and South. (Lighting, times of the day and overcast will help a little)
4: A few more interior shots are missing (some important highlights) these might help the interior point cloud connect better with the outside.
5: The roof (copper) was redone a few years ago (they will not let me put mud all over it so I can forget about a good point cloud)

I almost kept this synth Unlisted but changed my mind after I did the highlights

The highlights make it really fantastic! Great inside and outside synth.
