    Not like the P3 shot's but putting something in here anyway !
    Tis the Ten-Tom Waterway Lock and Dam and we have 3 of these in about a 30 mile stretch .
    Lot's of fishing goes on here ! Big lakes behind each one and lot's of barge traffic .
    Hunting and fishing is #1 thing here .

    Fantastic shot! What time did you have to get up to get that one? ;)
    Also do you mind sharing what camera settings you used? Thanks!

    I've been practising a little bit with color correction today and I really felt the green trees and blue skies in this one were under-represented, so here's a newbies color-corrected version for you:

    I was out around 5:00 AM but don't remember what time I took it .
    All I have my camera on is the default settings and don't have any software to doctor it up any .
    Normally just Tweet them straight to the weather station here and they put them up a lot during the weather .
    Seems they like the quad one's and always put in height ! ..sorta :D
    Thanks for the fix !!! I gotta get some software and learn to fix stuff ! I know I have over 1000 pic's stashed that would look good if I could just work with them some :)

    I got the other side of the Magnolia State @ sunset last night. No comparison to yours though.

    **** Dude, no wonder you're famous around there. I only dream of being able to get a shot like that.

    I'm not sure which one I like more, the original or the one Trumple tinkered with.

    Looks like that was shot from around 399 feet... LOL.

    I didn't realize the fishing went on between the locks.
    Hows about a shot from like 3000 feet up, looking towards the lake upstream??? :eek:
