Default Heavy Fog = Bad Contrast Fiasco....

Well, I've had a few rejections on this photo. More or less contrast???

Rejection 1: Yes, I know the info is bad and all that fun stuff.


I upped the contrast the next time, rejected again....but for under sharpened (soft). this time.


Then bad contrast again.


So, I play with the contrast, AGAIN....this time its undersharpened...AGAIN.


Okay, I don't change the contrast amount, sharpen the photo more, and its rejected for once again, Bad Contrast and undersharpened, yet again.


SO, more contrast, less contrast, or what?

Even though this was never a rejection reason, do you have any more room on the bottom? I feel like the train looks cramped down there and overall the shot is bottom-heavy. If you could crop in some on the bottom, I personally think it might look better. I don't think it will stop it from getting on RP, so it's not a big deal.

As for the contrast, I don't know. More, maybe?

I agree with Jake about putting in more on the bottom. This will get the shot to more of a rtio that RP likes, too. On the shot, all I can say is keep working on it. I didn't go through every rejection here, but the last one looks too blue and is, in fact, undersharpened. I think there is a fine RP shot in there somewere, but it might take a few more tries.

Editted to add -- I think it also needs some CW rotation.

Unfortunately so, this was kind of "planned shot" that turned into a grab shot, as I was helping a friend find their way to my location ( so they could shoot the train too). So what your seeing in terms of on the photo is how it is with the original. I'll keep playing with it.
