Default Under exposed.

Original submission.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=687332585

Adjusted gamma slightly by +5.

Attachment is my next change where I took magic wand and slected the plow and below frame on units and lead cars and let it do an auto adjustment.

Haven't tried that one as I wanted to bounce it off here to see if I'm missing something.

Regards
Aleks

Your contrast is flat, thats your biggest problem, Lighten the shadows and boost contrast.

Bumped saturation by 3, increased contrast by 10 and gamma by 10 on the black areas from the frame down. Is this enough change?

They all have a magenta cast as well, particularly the last one.

Yea better, may need to redo the white balance. Old film can be tricky but you will get it.

Thanks for the help. I've reduced the saturation by 3 removing what I added in the last attempt. Then I reduced the red by 3 to reduce the magenta cast.
Kodachrome always was to the warm side.
