Default Opinions/Advice on this image?

I've been working on this image since yesterday evening, and I just can't seem to get the saturation right. As you can see, it was nabbed for bad color..

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=282207424

Again, I did some saturation work, and submitted this one.

I then gave up for the night and figured my eyes were probably playing tricks on me since I had been out in the sun all day. I woke up, looked at the rejections from last night, and figured that I had a bit too much saturation.. I tried submitting a version that didn't have very much saturation, and was nabbed for this..

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=516128149

I figured that one probably had very little saturation, thus the rejection for bad color/contrast. So, I tried bumping up the saturation a little bit, but not too much, as I didn't want to make it look like one of my previous rejections fron last night. This is what I got...

Anyone have any suggestions on this one? I've tried increasing the saturation and decreasing it now, and I just seem to be stuck. Any help is appreciated.

Chase

I can see the differences.

First things first. Send an e-mail to the admins Chris and Chris, and explain briefly what you did so that you're off the hook for "uncorrected version".

Second, if you have PSE4 thru 7, have you tried shadows/highlights tool? I think this could help you here.

Thanks Barry for the reply. I'll contact the admins and explain my story.

As for the PSE4-7, I am currently only using GIMP for any photo editing. I'll have to look into PS Elements.

Thx.
Chase

First, if you make any changes to a rejected photo and resubmit, be sure to leave a comment in the "Comments to Screener" box on the upload screen explaining your changes, especially if they're fairly slight changes.

Second, the shot is just a little underexposed which is hurting the color. Increase the exposure by 1/4th of a stop or so and it should help the shot quite a bit.

Yes, I second that; forgot to include that advice.

Chase, PSE7 is worth the money! It's not much; I think $50-$60. Get it, you'll never go back.
