I'd Appreciate Your Input....
 
...on this rejection:

Not sure what the best way to adjust the color is on this. It looks good to me, is it too saturated to your trained eye?

Thanks for your help.

Geez, it looks pretty good color-wise to me. However, it does look a a tad 'soft.' It looks like the trailing unit's number boards are sharper than the lead unit's...plus the nose herald has a soft appearance to me. But color-wise, it certainly looks fine...

I'm not looking at that on my good monitor, but there appears to be a bit of a red cast to the image; the length of the shadow indicates this isn't a sunset shot. Maybe that'll give you something to start with for playing with corrections.

Hmm, maybe just slightly over saturated, and it is a tad soft, but nothing too major with the color, in my opinion.

It looks pretty good but is the grass already looking that bright green already up there? Down here in Ohio even after some warmer weather the "greens" that are starting to show are darker/duller/browner yet. Leads me to think it's a little over saturated or the color doesn't look quite right...

My 2 cents - probably worth less :grin:

MDH, this is a shot from last May. There is still a foot or more of snow here now, with more coming this weekend.

Thanks to everyone for your advice, I will see what I can do with it.

Whoops! :o Wasn't paying attention to the date - things are almost starting to look like that here and I wasn't thinking (long week!). Anyway, the grass still sticks out to me but I have seen it really look more or less like that though...

Nice shot though...

Indeed, it is a nice shot. That green grass, and overall some "color" is definitely a welcomed site! I'm used to brown grass, and twigs here, but I'll gladly take it over summer, which offers that infamous "high sun".
