Default First post here...

What do you guys think of this? I got a blurry rejection before so I took a slightly clearer photo I had from the same angle and worked a little more noise reduction on it. Any other tips/ideas are certainly welcome.

We got a tour of GE's Galesburg shops for a field trip.

Thanks.

Just needs sharpening, I think.

The background is definitely blurry. Did you shoot this handheld, or with a tripod?

This might be one of those interesting long exposure shots where you have the locomotives static and the moving people blurred as they move around.

I did not have a tripod with me since we were getting a walking tour of the whole shop. Sadly I doubt I'll be able to get back there to try again, which i why I was hoping to be able to save this. Thanks for the input so far.

I don't know why you responded to a rejection for blur with an application of noise reduction but it looks fine now. Sharpen it and change the exposure, make it brighter, you should be fine. The shot does not have an obvious focal point in terms of composition but it has enough interest that I think it will get in no problem.

PS welcome to the forums.

While others have not mentioned this, I find it to be just a bit tight on the left, as far as cropping is concerned.

Other then that, with some sharpening, it's a decent shot offering a different perspective, that would surely get you Top of 24!

How does this look? I can't let it out anymore on the left because part of a Dash 9's cab would be in the corner of the shot.
