Default Cropping advice

Here is the photo

Normally I would bring this up for discussion, but the paint scheme is not one we see often here anymore . It was rejected for cropping, and I have the original on file. Any suggestions?

Thank you for your time.

Take some off the left, top and bottom and you should be good to go. That should make it close to 1024 x 768. It also looks a tad dark. Give it a bit of lightening also. Nice catch.

The correct term for that is underexposed. The photo just looks like it would need a slight adjustment in the levels to make it look right. As far as the cropping goes, you'd just have to come in tighter on the train to eliminate some of the dead space. This would really do nothing more than create a more boring wedgie.

Thanks for the specification. If I could do it over, I would've ran across the street : ) (Honest, no sarcasm intended. This was a day where I almost fell over getting a shot, so it was wild.)

You a Bengals fan? Please say yes. I hope Palmer has a great year.

Nice shot Jeff. Well I'm a Cubbies fan to and they were awful this year. I'm also a packer fan but I don't like what I've seen this far.

Bring back memories?



As for the shot, glad it got in! Sometimes a wedgie isn't boring! Anytime there's a red and silver on lead!

In that case, it might be time to upload a few of mine!
