My First 100% Synthy Photosynth!

This morning I uploaded 17 pictures taken from the balcony of a cruise ship one morning when we docked in Ireland. I was expecting emerald green, but this is what I woke up to on that gray, drab day.


If you can't see the images below, you will need to go to the Microsoft Photosynth website at http://photosynth.net to get the required tools.



The pictures are fairly high-res, which makes it better for viewers to explore.

If you go to the Photosynth website, view this Photosynth in the Direct3D viewer, in full-screen. It is easy to navigate with a touch screen- I used my HP TouchSmart PC and was impressed with the fluid interaction, considering that this is a web-based application.

Haven't yet heard about Photosynth? Here is a description from the Photosynth website:

"Photosynth creates an amazing new experience with nothing more than a bunch of photos. Creating a synth allows you to share the places and things you love using the cinematic quality of a movie, the control of a video game, and the mind-blowing detail of the real world."

Is this just a panorama?

It is a panorama, but PhotoSynth does the "stitching", and adds a 3-D like effect.
