At last I’ve posted me first photos at PhotoSynth. Here they are.
Photosynth - from Microsoft. Imagine being able 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. With nothing more than a bunch of photos, Photosynth creates an amazing new experience.

I’m a bit disappointed with the result, probably because of the lens I’ve used – a 16mm fish-eye, and mostly because of the way I’ve used it – I’ve shoot it mostly from 2 or 3 positions, and swivel all around on a panoramic technique. This is the way to do it with stitching, but probably a bad way to take photos for Photosynth. With this technique I’d use Image Composite Editor, like this:
Oops, now that I think about it, I should have used a lens with perspective correction, now I can see how confused was Photosynth…
Image Composite Editor - from Microsoft Research. Image Composite Editor is an advanced panoramic image stitcher. While Photo Gallery includes the same stitching "engine", this application provides a lot more fine control. The stitched panorama can be saved in a wide variety of formats, from common formats like JPEG and TIFF to multi-resolution tiled formats like HD View and Silverlight Deep Zoom.
