Default Too many gigs to handle!

I didn't do so hot on this scan! Too many gigs to overcome, I guess...

I personally love it, Ron. Then again, I'm pretty biased towards Conrail....


However, lighten up on the noise removal (if you used it at all), and give it about a degree of CCW and........well they probably still won't take it but that should fix the issues on this reject.

Thanks. I may take another crack at it with a fresh scan and another round of Photoshop correction. The actual slide looks very good...but that was another era, and another set of standards. It's just a simple time exposure without supplemental light. I just guessed at the exposure time of course (probably at f4---ISO 200 slide film). You wouldn't know if you had a good shot or not until the slides returned from processing a few days later.

They don't seem to like sharp, or highly contrasted images.

I receive that rejection often on tone mapped images.

I reworked it but it still got dinged. I didn't appeal either time. It wasn't unlevel though; only the two engineer's side forward handrail stanchions were bent forward, so that's what the screener saw. But...it doesn't matter.
