First undersharpened, then color hue

I submitted this shot of a northbound auto train heading into CSX's queensgate yard in the late evening a few days ago, and had it rejected for being undersharpened, so i touched it up and...

I suppose I'll take the bait, challenge accepted! For the record, my comment wasn't meant to seem like I was mocking the picture, I like them both, edit and original. Come to think of it, I've seen...

It looks like the train is too close to the edge on the right. The trees take up more space than the train when you look at the image as a whole, and not just focusing on the train. That might be...

1st shot is unique, but it isn't easy to see what's going on without reading the caption. The workers seem to be standing around, and while the human aspect is nice, it doesn't give a feel that...

I had my ISO set at 100, gave it a little contrast boost as it looked a little washed out. Also I decided to level the shot according to the building at right wiht the chimney, as a lot of those...

Too much noise/ grain: compression issues?

It seemed okay to me before I saved the shot from Lightroom, so I'm thinking that is where the issue is.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=1673176&key=7655802

Any suggestions?

Kevin, yes, I was mostly getting at the underexposure, but I agree about the softness in the rejection also. I bet its safe to say that many (if not most of us) have used or started out with simpler...

It seems like they probably meant to reject it for similar to previous based off what you said. Take advantage of the comments to screeners box like Joseph said. I did a quick edit for you with the...

Pixlr is a free online editor but it has its limitations, Lightroom, while not free, is another good piece of software, I would highly recommend it.

The B&O now CSX rested about 80 feet from where I grew up and I can (vaguely) remember seeing a real B&O unit or 2, but for the most part it was Conrail. My parents used to say that I would watch...

What got you interested in trains?

Where does your interest in trains/railroading stem from? Friends, family, have you ever worked with one? I'd like to hear some of your backgrounds! :)

Hi CSX 1702,

It's nice to see some other members who are local. As for the picture, I agree with you, a morning shot would've looked much better. Seven mile has many good spots to shoot from. As...

Thanks Bob, and I actually have a shot that fits what you described. a problem I see with it is maybe the train is kind of cut of awkwardly on the right.

PAQ on a heritage unit- is it worth the effort?

Tried to attempt something a little more creative than a 3/4 wedgie, but got shot down for PAQ. I know the power doesnt typically give a shot any more merit than the next, but I felt like this was a...

I like it. Looks too tightly cropped, though. If you have any more frames that include more room on all sides it might have some potential, maybe brighten and make it "pop" a little.

Color hue- can you see it?

Hi all,
