You've already received the real advice - just want to add my two cents since I know this location quite well. While not RP material this is a unique Storm King shot, with some really nice touches. ...

Thank you, Camper. Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised RP grabbed that pre-dawn job on my first go around. Thought I'd be struggling on THAT one, and not my present head ache.

Hi, JR. Yes, I did go back to original file, which was a raw file, for my re-working. You suspect this is fixable, it sounds? I actually may not have even sharpened it on this go around, now that...

Apparently got the color / hue issue handled, but today got zapped for noise. That, I believe, finishes off my efforts for this shot on RP.

But just figured I'd check in with the experts to see...

And JR - quick clarification, if needed. In the shot the engine is pushing. So this shot was too early, and my later shot has train too far to the right in the frame.

Thanks again for commenting...

Good thought, camper. Thought it did pop, until doing a bit of lightening after the rejection.

It can indeed be improved.

Thanks.

Help With Color Rejection, Please?

Hi, all,

This was rejected last night for bad color / too much of a certain color. Not sure what to do with it, or what I'm missing here. Take down some blue from the sky?

Thanks for suggestions, Jacques.

And Mitch, now that I'm home at my computer, and not looking at my phone, I like your auto corrected version in many ways, but it strikes me as overall too blue.

JRMDC - I received the basic rejection email not long after the shot was screened last night, but there were no 'comments' on it. Haven't received any other email, which is why I posted it here. ...

Hey, is that MY shot?? ; )

And here I thought all the 'auto' features in PSE would not be helpful.

Thanks, Mitch! Will go back and redo this shot - and 497 oothers - tonight.

Ron - Me too, truth be told, and thanks for checking in. I find the shot depressing, which I like. Too bad RP doesn't have a Depressing category. ; )

And in that first shot, I don't even mind...

JR - you were talking straight. Didn't come out harsh at all. The PAQs, especially for the second shot, had me thinking more was at play here. This was a great lesson in non-train b/w shots, which...

Interesting, JR.

So the bad news here is that I'd set the camera to B/W, but the good news is I shot raw + JPG (and yes, the raw stays in color) so I kept all data.

Still took a poor shot, it...

JR - Thanks for the thorough reply. Very helpful.

Incidentally, for both these shots I had my camera (Canon 60D) set for B&W. Figured that was the easy way to go, but not so much, it seems.
