Default RAW: The good and the bad

Good: Easier to salvage badly taken image, and you can do more with a good image.
Bad: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1045647167
You can do too much without effort, too

Although by shooting RAW you can save a picture if you've made a mistake its much better (and easier) to have exposed it correctly in the first place.

Its also probably harder to significantly alter a RAW image and still make the final JPG look 'natural' so its a case of 'everything in moderation'

Interesting. That shot looks a lot less processed than your previous one that was a PCA. "Make up" rejection?

Care to share the original so others can take a pop at it?

That looks like a great photo location, and I look forward to seeing another shot from you there. How is the sun angle?

That first point is why I appealed it
I only shot that one in RAW, I expected it to be the only way to save it since the lighting was less than spectacular...
I love that location, but I can never seem to get a good shot! I use it mainly for eastbounds, and it seems like there are never any between 11 and 3 (The time when the light is right for them)
That shot would be great for WBs after 4, and I'll be trying that eventually.
Here's the angle I was trying to get:

I've been there maybe 10 times since I took that shot in 2005, but I've NEVER gotten a train in any sort of decent light since!
