My first synth. I think I overdid the stitching.

Actually your technique here is flawless. If you view the pointcloud, you can easily see how clean the edges are and how complete the model is in comparison with most people's. If this is your first synth, then I've got to take my hat off to you for getting it so right the first time around.

The most important concept that you demonstrate here is that Photosynth allows you to move through space (or to put it differently, you can walk all the way around things) rather than being confined, like a panorama, to one point. This is absolutely critical for getting a three dimensional model from the photos instead of only a flat doughnut of a pointcloud.

What I am actually very impressed with is that even though you uploaded all your photos without rotating them right side up, Photosynth still understood which way was up.

I also meant to mention above to try the overhead view. The detail that is derived from the care you took with the input is again rewarded as you can see the clean crisp outlines of the memorial from straight above it.

thanks nathanael,
i read and kept a very good article in a u.k. pc mag (pcpro) on photosynth. i then visited the site and read everything about technique etc. i took 4 shots from top to bottom of the monument then moved around about 4-5 metres at a time.'till i'd completed the full circle.

Just a question...

I was looking at the map this evening and was wondering whether you had used the geo-align tool to match your synth's pointcloud to the scale and direction of the map.

I ask because your synth's pushpin seemed to be a little downhill and to the east of the monument in the aerial photographs on the map.
