Default CSX 2008 Calendar: How NOT to Photoshop

A friend at CSX gave me a copy of the company's 2008 calendar. I leafed through and was pleasantly surprised to see that the calendar was comprised entirely of photos posted on railpictures.net. Congratulations are due for the photographers whose work was featured in this publication.

However, it didn't take long to notice that CSX had performed some sort of botched abortion on more than half of the photos. In all cases, the photoshopping involved "repainting" locomotives into the newest CSX paint scheme. Working in marketing and communications myself, I know the importance of "corporate branding," but I found this to be a bit on the extreme side. In cases where there was significant alteration to the calendar images, I've scanned and posted the calendar version. Take a look for yourselves:
