Default Help with a reject.

This one got rejected for bad color.

I have done nothing saturation-wise with the photo. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks.

What I see is too much green, so maybe tone that down. You might boost the contrast a little as well. You might get hit with another rejection for lighting or something, though.

When the histogram is bad the color and contrast will be also. Check it. It will show you how off this shot is.

First fix your levels. That should do most it. Then a touch of vibrancy and sharpening ought to do the rest.

Rule #1 of taking a common wedgie shot: Do not cut off the train.
