Default My latest string of rejections.. any ideas?

Here are the latest from me.. tell me fellas.. what's the word? go digital? I'm already making plans for that.. see what you say.. or say what you see..

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=214410
- Bad Color: Not enough color depth or too much color saturation.
- Bad Contrast

Should I appeal? fix, then resubmit?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=214408
Reason(s) for Rejection:
- Undersharpened (Soft):

I guess it does look a little soft towards the back of the first engine where the people are.. is that what your seeing?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreject.php?id=214404
Reason(s) for Rejection:
- Poor lighting (Cloudy): Common angle cloudy day shots of common/standard power are generally not accepted.


The sun was out, maybe not in full force, but it was out, and I was trying more to capture the clouds and mountains in the background... if the train were further back and could be lightened, do you think it would work?

1st: There looks like there is something wrong with the color. I don't think the UP engine is yellow enough, or is it just really dirty? Also, when you entered your information, it is a SD90, and it is UP 8368. I understand if you meant the WC locomotive, but since it isn't the lead locomotive, and because you cannot see the number on the WC unit, the UP SD90 qualifies better as the Locomotive Data.

2nd: It has bad info. The locomotive isn't a GP50. It is an AC4400CW. As far as sharpening goes, I think that by sharpening it, you might be sacrificing image quality, but you can try it out and see how it goes.

3rd: Its your decision, but if I were you I would let that slide into your personal collection just because it is only a SD70, nothing special, and I don't see any of the mountians you were talking about, just clouds.

Cool shots, but they all need a little color help. Are you using film or digital?

Personally, I don't think it's so much the color as it is that special UP grime. Looks a tad underexposed and soft to me. Of course, the former might just be because of that special UP grime.

I use film, that's all I have available to me for the moment, those are probably the best ones that came out to date, but I am looking for a good digital, but not too expensive.. I might just take out a loan on the house and get something state of the art. (a little sarcasm there)

also thanks for the correct engine info, sometimes the rosters aren't always clear because they use numbers here and ther and everywhere.

If you shoot a lot, a digital camera will pay for itself very quickly when you consider the cost of film and processing. My Nikon D70 probably paid for itself in the first year!
