There seems to be a failure to recognize that sunlight late in the afternoon shifts to the red end of the spectrum, which makes red objects redder.

You're not alone. I got dinged for the same thing: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...58&key=4033909

Vitaly Koval had the same problem:

Nature doesn't have one standard color palette, why should RP?

Except...the rejection on your image is valid. It looks way more aqua than anything. I don't see much red at all.


Cam's shot is too saturated, and the overly saturated colors (the blues, the greens) have nothing to do with late sunlight.

And a failure to recognize that it doesn't make greens greener, blues bluer, etc. I'm with Jim, I do not see any issues related to only the red channel.

If anything, I blame RP for their apparent preference of liking juiced photos.

For what it's worth, I've noticed this too, both in my own rejections as well as others'.

That being said, Cam, you really laid on the saturation with this one.

Same here - and it seems to be worse for "foreign" shots.
