Great spot for a pano. I really like this one.

The rotation around in this one seems a bit off. This happens sometimes in these 360 bubbles when ICE can't quite figure out which way is up in the world. It would be nice if we could adjust the "up direction" on the Photosynth web site. But, currently that isn't a feature that we offer. You can however fix this in ICE. Click on the 3d cube icon to get into orientation view. Then adjust the pano so that it looks upright, in other words the horizon is in the right place.

Hope this is useful.

Great work Gigaview. Matt -- thanks for that tip. We've been enjoying all your recent panos too!

Thanks Matt and David. I was curious as to why the horizon was so out of balance on this. Any ideas why the incorporation into Bing Maps has slowed so much? With most of my other shots, it only took a day, but none of these NYC shots have shown up there. There is a great deal of interest in the feature and it is a key advantage over competitors.

Gigaview - we had a problem with the process that uploaded synths to Bing Maps. Should be back to normal now though.
