This is a second try at Photosynthing the site of Homol'ovi IV.

This is getting better, try to get to the views on top of the site, or use your mouse wheel to "drill" down into some of the rock art images.

Almost like you were there!

To get photosynth right, you really need to photograph things in a different way, I'll get better coverage of this place next month.

Dounglas, We here at photosynth love what you're doing to document these archaeological sites. I would suggest that you start with wide angle establishing shots. Stand in one place and shoot a 360, taking a photo about every 10 degrees. Then, for the petroglyphs, and other things you want to preserve detail on take a "medium" shot the foucus on just that particular rock face (or whatever). Then get in close for detail shots (how cool would it be to have a detail shot for each individual petroglyph?). Now move 15-20 feet in another direction and do the same thing. Keep doing this until you've completed a circuit of the area. Make sense? Feel free to contact me if it doesn't.

Also, you might try shooting closer to sunrise or sunset, the less direct light will bring out more detail, of course this won't work if half of everything you want to document will be in shadow.

Anyway, great synth. Keep them coming!

Douglas, I’ve just spent 45 mins wandering around your synths - truly wonderful experience. In addition to Tony’s info, you could try the camera on continuous shoot walking around slowly. This seemed to work for me on this extensively carved outcrop: http://photosynth.net/view.aspx?cid=ebd36c16-1e7a-467c-8ff2-d6b99f14e4c8 . You’ll probably only need every 3rd or 4th image to stitch/synth correctly (depending on camera and write speed)

Look forward to seeing more of your synths.
