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 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.
