The problem is.....
 
I'm dumb.:o

I have managed to set a personal record for "bad color" rejections on this shot.

1st try,

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...62&key=4702060

2nd try,

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...26&key=7383553

3rd try, (and I'll admit a bit much on the saturation etc..)

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...31&key=5584464

But I'll be damned that I can't figure this out.

Any ideas?????

Thanks in advance.

I think they may be looking for something that looks a little more white and a little less blue.

Bingo. Your 2nd attempt was the closest, but still needed some work. Take a look at the rough edit I attached. You want it to look something like that, but spend more than 2 minutes on it. The "Auto Color" tool in Photoshop provides a pretty good starting point from your second rejection.

Perhaps they want something like this! :grin:

BINGO is correct!

Thanks, Jim for pointing me in the right direction. Went a bit warmer (less blue) re-submitted and honestly had a little throw-up in my mouth as it went down in the queue. Looked at my rejected pile and it wasn't there. Gulp.:shock: Looked and the recently accepted and drumroll......

On it's way to just over 200 views! Woot Woot :-D

Well, now that it's accepted, you have the perfect opportunity to resubmit a better one, because the accepted one is still too blue. Notice the numbers on the side of the cab. They should be pure white, not a light blue like in your shot.
