Bad Color...I don't see it...
 
Hi to All!

Here are some shots from the other evening of this AWESOME consist of a YN1, YN2, & YN3 CSX SD40-2s in one consist! It couldn't have left out of town at a better time or in better light. Anyways, where is the bad color? I keep trying to fix the following rejections, but they still get shot down for "Bad Color". These were taken around 7:20-7:35pm EST.

On the last rejection I'm not worried about the Oversharpening since I can easily fix that.
Please Help as this is one shot of a train I really want to get in!

Thanks!
Anthony Davis

I'll cautiously help out here. They all look a little orange, the sun might have been working against you here, haha. It's great light I know, but you're going to have to change the hue of that sun light. Just looks too orange to me. Also, keep in mind, this site doesn't care too much about how great a consist is etc etc. They care about a great photograph of that great consist etc etc. That's just.....my opinion.

WHAT?! I agree it is oversaturated but "too orange" is not the right way to phrase it. Why would you EVER change the hue of <i>sweet</i> light. It's not called that for any old reason. I do agree that it may SOMETIMES work against you but only with specific paint schemes.

Good save. "This site" has 5 screeners that have different tastes, likes, dislikes, etc. I do not know how much knowledge the other 4 guys have but I know a lot about rarity and great consists since I focus my attention on photographing things of that nature; last in a paint scheme, special engines, etc. I would much rather see a nicely composed shot that showcases the consist rather than a typical wedge or an angle that doesn't necessarily work but I also know sometime you have to deal with where you are or what you are given. I think "great consists" get a little more leeway in some cases such as cloudy days and there have been a number brought into the forums to argue why one person's shot is on and another isn't so I disagree with your opinion of how the "site" (5 different screeners) feel about it.

Congrats. Nice to see one got on.

With no less "orange" (read:sweet light) than the originals.

Thanks Andrew, It really couldn't have gotten any sweeter for me especially since timing the departure of the train is almost impossible. (Like the other night when he had two YN2 SD50s on him, ended up leaving after dark) I was double crossing my fingers in hopes of capturing him in some kind of light.

Agreed, it's not all the time, especially in my area, that you can either A: Good Power Combos or B: Get Foreign or "rare" power. And with my luck, whenever we do, it's in the worst conditions for me to even get a RP shot...

I'm thinking this monitor is dieing..........because to be honest, I'm getting tired of being flamed for what my eyes are actually seeing lately. So a quick run upstairs shows the exact opposite of what I'm seeing on this faded out of whack laptop screen. The colors look better, everythings not so fuzzy, etc etc. This explains why everyone has been on my case lately, lol. Jeesh, sorry guys, really am. We now know what the issue is with me now, haha. I'll try to use Jennifers HD screen from now on. Here I thought everyone was out to get me or something, haha. Dang....lol
