Default Not Another Photo Rejection Thread!

Sorry, I know it's rather hackneyed, but I'm curious about this shot:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=139441

It was rejected a few times for bad contrast. What about the contrast needs to be changed for it to be more optimal? What exactly are the screeners looking for as far as contrast?

Thanks very much for your responses.

The image quality is poor... I can see the lo-res "squares."

Save and upload at the highest possible quality.

As for contrast, they might want you to add some.

The color are dull. They need to pop more. They might do that with more contrast.

I concur. Also, it looks like you'll need to adjust the levels a bit to brighten it up since it looks slightly underexposed. Just those few minor adjustments, and it should be good to go.
