Default Any chance for these two?

Last weekend I took off my "plane spotter" hat and traded it in for the "railfan" one and took a trip up to the Conway Scenic in New Hampshire.

The sun was far from ideal all day, with clouds building in the afternoon. I tried my best to make good of the situation, and I thought I grabbed a couple decent exposures. Anyways, I was wondering if there's any potential to fix these two, or if I should just leave them for the personal collection?


Thanks in advance!

I'd say personal collection hands down on the second shot. The first shot *might* could be salvaged -- certainly could be made better -- by better processing to make the colors stand out. It's going to be hard to get it in with the crappy weather you had.

The weather that you had pretty much ruined both shots. I would say If you saturated the second shot a little to get some vibrance in it I think it would help. I would try to ovoid railfaning when you know the lighting won't be good...If you want good pictures
Stay out of the train's way and they will stay out of your way.

The first one is a candidate for a sky transplant
