I'm on a new laptop, and I wouldn't expect the monitor to have perfect colour definition. Any idea which way to go with this one?

Adjust your histogram. It is underexposed. That will fix the saturation.

What are you guys seeing???

I see just total abuse of the saturation slider, unbelievable greens, out of this worldly. The reds are too strong also, but the greens are really something else.

Hm, interesting. I did saturate the photo a little bit (+10 in GIMP) but actually backed off the saturation in the green channel.

That's the trouble with scans, I suppose... every now and then, I'll get back a set that has unbelievably radioactive greens.

I was half-expecting that, but was hoping that the sharp angle would de-emphasize it...

Here's a reworked version... exposure upped slightly, a little red removed and desaturated. Thoughts?

I'm now on a different monitor now and, yes, the red looks better than I recall from before, but the green is still as wacko as before. If anything, this tells me the two monitors are similar, as that green looks just the same as before.

It's like that scene was slimed before the train came.

Maybe they want something like this. But you're going to get the high sun rejection in the end either way :/

Yikes! I think you might've gone in the opposite direction from what the screener intended, John... but now we've moved on from colour to cropping, anyway.

I appreciate everyone's input, but I might just let this one go.

Sorry Jacques, couldn't resist!
By the way, is that old one-eyed fart Terry Madigan still running his blue and orange trucks outta that neighborhood? He had a spot maybe a mile or two north of the tracks and about a half dozen Mack R-Models st the time around late seventies to early eighties...

No idea, but I've never noticed an unusual concentration of vintage trucks running around the area, so I can only assume that he's not. It's actually starting to build up quite quickly, with a couple of suburban developments going up in the last few years...

Based on the above, I think it needs to look more like this:
