I like the idea of the first one, I wonder what a vertical shot would look like.

The second one I def think is fixable. It appears to have a pink/magenta hue to it, very faint.

If it's a raw file, try pulling the tint back a little towards the green end.

That is the weirdest siding I've ever seen.

I see that Magenta cast now, thanks for pointing that out.

The first crop I tried out was vertical, but I thought it took away some of the "weirdness," which is what I liked about it.

I'll try again tomorrow.....

Like em both, first ones a real neat industrial branchline scene. They should be easy to fix, though dont think the first ones really soft, only the parts that are supposed to be are.

Looks oversharpened to me.

The first one for me anyway, that clump of trees adds nothing to the scene, maybe you could try a vertical shot getting rid of the trees.

Can you give us some more info about this spur? Looks like it hasn't been used in ages due to the rusty rails. But what interests me the most is the branch that was cut from one of the trees on the left. That thing looks to be a good 10-12" in diameter. Were the rails unused for such a long period that a branch of that size was able to grow over the rails?

Time to give up on this one. These are the last two rejections:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=498795297

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=129800446

As for the branch, it originally ran north from here to Keene NH. This is all that remains, less than half a mile from the main line to here, know as the Hewood Industrial branch. This picture shows the siding at New England Wooden Ware, the only customer left on the branch. There has never been a lapse in service here that I am aware of. They get deliveries of 3-5 box cars as frequently as every few days, to as infrequently as every month or so.

I still think there's a photo there. Especially with the one where the engine is closer to the camera. I wouldn't give up so soon.

I took me like 8 tries to get a snow shot in once, but it finally got in.

Don't give up just now! I love this shot, it definately has a story to tell.

I would take the first one (the one that did not get Oversharpened) and raise the contrast and blacks some more! Look at the tree bark, it lacks shadows and details. That's certainly fixable!
