Circular Church - Charleston, SC 1681

While walking around Charleston, we came across this very striking church with an equally impressive cemetary. I noticed that the sign on the gate said that visitors are welcome, so I went in. The Circular Church of Charleston is one of the oldest churches in the south, dating back to 1681. It's the site of the city's oldest burial grounds, dating to 1695.

While touring the grounds, it's hard not to notice the unique circular design of the building. I also happen to be intrigued by old cemetaries, so I spent some time taking pictures. Enjoy =)

This is your grandest scale public synth by far, I would have to say.

Great work, Tan. Thanks for sharing this architecture with us.

Wow. I cycled through the pointcloud in the order that you took the photos a few times and I have to say that your method of movement was really very inspiring... very natural as though I were actually walking around the church myself and glancing about me or keeping my eyes on the curve of the wall as I walked around it. I just have to reiterate how well done this is technically.

The sense of sunlight and shade within the pointcloud is something very well captured in this synth as well.

Thanks Nathanael! It doesn't come through in the pictures, but I enjoyed making the synth as much as viewing it. This is a really cool building and cemetery. When I started Photosynth-ing, I had a point-and-shoot camera that was hard to see through and slow to take pictures. With my new camera, I can look through the viewfinder and walk at the same time, taking pictures the whole time.

Yes, this is the largest synth I've done yet. I was testing Photosynth on a new box that I built (8 proc. x64, 32GB RAM, 14TB) to see if I could break my 800 photo limit. I'm sure I'll be doing more "testing" later =)

Wow! That was one of the best synths I have seen so far. I just started 2 or 3 weeks ago but. Your work is certainly inspiring
