Default Color issue

In my opinion need more saturation, I'm right?

Thanks in advance!

The color looks off in the sky and the trees. Might also be a little over exposed. I generally like your shots, Juan, but you keep having the same centering issues. You center all of your subjects. This one seems to have too much on both the top and bottom. Maybe crop to just above the birds and then somehoe balance the photo otherwise. I like the paint on those units.

Thanks as always Joe, I very apreciate the critics, I'll try to explain me.

For example, in a light engine (B826 locomotive shot for example) if I dont center the locomotive I get a bad crop rejected because the dead space produced by that "not center crop". that it's how I understand the situation...

Related the pic, I'll try to work on the colors and resubmit.

thanks again!

Juan

Juan, you have the wedgie and the roster shot down. Please show us some more of your country and start taking scenics. Please! Anything trackside, anything. Take a look at some of the shots on RP that are not wedgies or rosters and give it a go.

You have some, but you could do so much more!

It def. needs somethings, I'm thinking undercutting, tie replacement, ballasting, a good run over by the rail grinder...

Oh you meant the picture...
