The old Plaquemine lock structure, now closed was once the highest lift in the world. It was built by Col. Goethels (Panama Canal builder) in 1890's.

Comments on how to improve these would be most appreciated. As one can see it was a very cloudy day with threatning rain.

Hi!

I'm no photo pro and hesitate to advise, but the thing that immediately strikes me about your photos is how you have centered the subject matter in each. I find this leaves the images flat and somewhat uninspired.

Type into your internet seach engine "Rule of Thirds" and read some of the literature on this most basic of photo techniques. It makes a huge difference. Hope this is of some help.

Thanks, Jim and DGC for responding.I really do appreciate the comments. I looked up the rule of thirds, while I do see the merit to it, I also think it would depend up the subject and the setting. However, I was not aware of this rule and will try to keep it in mind.

DGC must be looking at different picures from me. I cannot see how obeying the theoretical Rule of Thirds would improve any of the pictures. I thought they were interesting, well composed and well worth the post
