Default Bad Color

Tried to upload this one a liitle while ago and...



Does it look that bland or too saturated? I didn't touch the colour when editing it, and it doesn't look that bad to me... Any thoughts?

The color looks kind of bland to me.

I agree with Tom-- the color seems drained. Saturation issues.

Try something like the attached, I used the "remove colour cast" tool in the adjust colour menu in PS5. The area used was the rear wall of the building immediately above the 1st and 2nd coaches of the Alfa Pendular.

I also note that the size is a bit off at 1024 x 599, in fact I am surprised that you could even upload it (thought the minimum was 600), when I have inadvertantly done this in the past, it has been rejected without the photo appearing. When re-cropping, you might also like to include the whole of the bloke on the right hand side, it looks a bit strange with only half a person there.

Thanks for the tip, Janet.

As for that "half-person" it would have to be totally cropped as it is already sliced in half in the original picture
