Manini Owali at Kua Bay

I went to Manini Owali beach at Kua Bay with the intent of doing aerial panoramas rather than a synth, but I got such a nice set of images, I had to see how well it worked out.

These were done using a new approach to aerial panoramas that really should lend itself well to Photosynth.

Manini Owali beach at Kua Bay is an increasingly popular spot to go swimming, snorkeling, boogie boarding, and just to hang out. I got there early enough the beach was almost empty, but it began to fill up as the day went on. It's not as devoid of human presence as, say, my Kiholo Bay synths.

Manini Owali beach is also a historic site where ancient Hawaiians dwelt, so you may well see ruins in the lava. It's worth poking around through the images. (Please don't poke around on foot. Historic sites like this are incredibly fragile and easy to destroy!)

Another great synth Tom. Be sure to check this out in the new overhead view (just shipped today). You may also want to try geoaligning this synth (and some of your older ones). I used quite a few of them when testing this functionality. Let us know what you think about the new features!

Hey, thanks for the info on geoalignment! I hadn't tried that before. I also didn't know about the overhead view. Gotta give that a try, too!

It's now geotagged and geoaligned, but I'll have to play around to see what that actually gives the viewer. Thanks again for the tip!
