Default Bad Color?

Hi all! This night photo was rejected due to "Bad Color: Not enough color depth or too much color saturation." I respect the screeners opinion, however, I didnt think that this one came out too bad. Can I fix this with editing, appeal, or let it go? Thanks for any help!!

That's a nice photo of that GP9R!

I looks a little orangish-yellowish, I think you could fix it and reupload it.

What's wierd is that there is a similar orangish-yellowish photo that was accepted the other day>>>http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=127793

Beats me why the screaner would reject yours and not the other guy's.

Lighten the photo up. The picture overall is too dark. Good Luck.

I agree with lightening it up. Happy birthday, Adam!

Thanks for the help guys, and thanks for the Happy B-day wish Nick! I lightened it up just a tad to see what I would get and it was rejected still. I think that I sould appeal, but I havent a clue what to say. Should I compair it to that photo that Joe linked to? Should I edit it more or not? Thanks

Here is the link to the edited photo; its not much different.

If you look at the snow, it is yellow, either caused by the lighting ... or a REAL big dog.

In PS or Elements, use the image adjustments/color/ gray picker to choose a gray area or shaded snow. This will tell the program what is supposed to be gray, and adjust the image so it looks more normal.

Actually, I got the snow to be close to white, but the unit is really washed out, since the light was at the back, rather than the front of the unit.

After you lightened it, the whole photo looks flat. I'm guessing you just used the brightness feature. Add in some contrast and bump up the saturation a bit.

Probably because the one in the other guy's is a unique, one-and-only BNSF paint scheme (i.e. very rare)...

But that GTW GP9R with a GP38 cab is more interesting, because it is really old, and also it is a fallen flag railroad.

Matter of opinion, but not less rare...
