Taken in Vicksburg, MS within an hour of sunset. The light changed really fast during this time and I had to do some brightening on the rightmost images, to a readily apparent uneven effect. Overall, however, I am mostly pleased with the outcome. To the far right is the Ameristar riverboat casino. Interstate 20 and the state highway (closed) / rail (active) are center-left. A barge is passing under the bridges as well. And for a little surprise, somewhere in the light above and to the left of the bridges is the Hubble Space Telescope. The mother-son couple in the photo arrived to look for the 'scope as I was setting up my panorama. Sure enough, about 5-10 minutes after the pano finished, the light had diminished to the point where we could see the Hubble as it passed overhead.
