Default Contrast Help

I got hit with bad contrast on this one:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=852543&key=0

Is it too much or too little? I think its too much, but I'm not sure.

It looks to me like it needs a little more contrast. I took the image into Gimp and adjusted the Contrast up by 10 ticks on the slider. It looks better to me after that adjustment.

It's shots like this that beg my suggestion, made in the Site Forum, that some reject reasons be split into two so that you know which of two possible, opposite conditions the screener is seeing.

I think it's a great shot and B&W enhances it.

Thanks Mark. I'll boost the contrast and see what happens.
