Default Bad color

Both of these were rejected for bad color, is there anyway to fix this?

Also this one was rejected for bad cropping which I'm assuming is because it is so tight and also uneven horizon which I can see now that I look at it. There are telephone lines that run along the top of the frame if it were pulled back which is why it is cropped so, would it be better to leave them in or is it just not going to be accepted either way?

I'm not sure about the color, but the cropping, you can try giving the train some "breathing room". Also, it might get rejected for High Sun, the trucks are completely dark.

Also want to add this one which was initially rejected for uneven horizon then resubmitted and now rejected for bad cropping which I'm not sure I understand.

Third one: Nice shot! Crop it in a little closer by taking some off thw left and a tad off the bottom. That should make this one ready to go.

Well, you can crop the right so that the right side of the final picture is right at the train.

Can't say that I disagree with Sammy or Nick.

Regarding the color issue, I know you do film Joe, is there something in the settings on your scanner? I'm just wondering if maybe your scanner has a "true color" setting.

Either way, I'd think about trying to naturalize the color, if you can take some of the yellow out of it, maybe bump up the blue a tad.

There's something really wierd (can't put my finger on it) about the colors, like the sunlight is being filtered somehow. But I cannot determine if it's the way the photo was developed or if it's something in the way it was scanned.

These are all good shots, but they might need just a little help getting in. In all of the shots, there is too much room between the nose of the lead unit and the side of the frame. In TV, this would be called too much lead room. The third shot migt be the one of the three that doen't have too much room.

About the color, I don't know what to tell you. I probably would not have noticed this if you hadn't said this was the reason it was rejected.

IMO, faded locomotives are the problem in the color. I don't know what you can do about the CN shot. Everything is brown/orange. I like the shot, I think the color is good, if the locomotive is faded. Again, that may kill the shot in its self.
