Default Some Advice

Hello, I have submitted these photos, but to no avail. Being a long time viewer, I pretty much know the basics, but help is still accepted. Are these fixable, or should I toss 'em?

I like this one;

See how this turns out; hit it with auto contrast, then unsharp mask at 75/.8/0 and see what you get. Might even go with adjust lighting//shadows/highlights and darken highlights a bit.

Just my $.02

Toy around with levels, contrast and saturation on this guy:

Slight (very slight) clockwise rotation on this guy:

Personal collection for the rest - you might be able to salvage the well lit wedges... but they're just well lit wedges.

Alright, I'll see what I can whip up. These are not the original crops, but it sounds like the cropping isn't the biggest issue anyways. Hopefully a little leveling of the CSX 2768 shot will get it accepted. Oh well, worth a try.

The photos have now been dinged for the following:

and

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=847641490

I thought the CSX 2768 shot was level. I even used the grid to check.

Any way the photo does look unlevel, may be caused by the use of a wide angle lens.

Suggestions?

The building on the right of the second shot appears to be leaning right. Make sure you level via a vertical in the middle of the photo and let the screener know. Also the photo needs cropping: note the upper right corner has dead white space from your leveling.

Note that practically all of the shots are leaning to the left, regardless of whether they were dinged for that. Out of them all, the aforementioned shot of the 2768 is nice and mght be the only one worth saving.

Alright, thanks all for the help. I'll give 2768 another go, after that, I will move on.
