Default Screener inconsistency...again

Originally rejected for underexposure

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...97&key=3095099

Corrected or so I thought. Should have checked closer cause it was a little soft. Got an undersharp rejection

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...58&key=5361379

So I sharpened and now back to underexposed rejection.

Screener shenanigans like that it was gets people so upset.

It was a overcast/misty day. Maybe it's too bright to portray that moodiness. IDK.

I tend to agree with the basis of the rejection. it's darkish, flat, and uninspiring. The headlights are overpowering as well.

I'll attach one of mine from there at a similar zoom under similar conditions.

Without judging this photo the problem for me(which I see here) has been lately running around in a circle. Fix one thing, then go back.

I have some night photos and always the hue, surprise, then more sharpening which I don't like because they are at high ISO. I don't want to start threads for my little disappoints but will piggy back again on this thread.

Example:
Sharpness and now level(maybe?? .3 of a degree). Then maybe something else?? Hue?.
I made the mistake of closing my original so would have to start over so just forget it for now. I have a bunch of old 70's stuff which is another challenge and thinking more of the burn pile being more satisfying.

I also agree with the final rejection for the reasons that Loyd noted. When you simply lightened the exposure, you also blew out the colors of the signals.

Here's my quick and dirty edit of your first rejection. Besides lightening the exposure, I drastically darkened the whites, darkened the highlights, lightened the shadows. Next I increased the contrast to overcome the flatness, and desaturated the yellow a little. There's no overcoming those blown out headlights, however.

Ah yes, I see what you mean about the signals. I am not griping that it didn't get in. Mainly the inconsistency which I think is caused by the fact that the after getting an undersharp rejection I got an underexposed again. I think that reveals that the original screener did not review subsequent submissions.

I can see bad cropping coming next - awfully tight at the bottom.

Blanket softness with lacking fine detail. Looks to me you're overdriving the ISO and attempting to brush away the noise too aggressively.
