Every sunset shot should be rejected on that basis. So much for something a little different, but I knew going in I had a -8.7% chance of getting in.
First I appreciate the historic CNW photos you post.
Rejection: I like the image but guess 1) it suffered from the exposure correction 2) turned a muddy brown 3) watch what you care for ie too much fog.

From a slide I think it is a hard process. Like to hear others. Generally I don't like armchair quarterbacks but I did a quick revision, not that I really happy with correction but maybe moves in different direction.
