Default Bad Color

I am thinking I went to much on the saturation. What are your thoughts? Are there any other issues that you can see that I need to address?

Thanks!

Yeah, definitely tone down the saturation and maybe take a little red out of it as well. I know that place as some funky lighting that's kind of hard to work with.

Also, bad cropping is next. It looks a little tight to me and they may not like the idea of having the rear cut off. I like it the way it is though. Im just trying to think RP screener.

I am thinking like a portrait shot where you just show the shoulders and face, not the whole body. I guess when I re-submit I will put that in the notes.

P.S. Be careful trying to think like a screener

Yeah, I like it. It's not a traditional wedgie. Definitely try it that way, then we'll know for sure.

Yes, I just noticed I was leaning to the left .0002 degrees and had to sit up.

Mess with it until the numbers on the boards are white or near white.

Also, the wall to the left looks like it has a red/yellow cast to it.

Your picture is there, you just need to bring it out of the weird colors and lighting.

I find it to be a nice detail orientated shot of a gorgeous locomotive, but it also seems like a prime candidate for either composition/balance or bad angle.

Very prophetic Derek! Dinged for BC now

What should I do? I just wanted a nose "portrait" type shot and I explained that when I submitted. Can I crop this to something acceptable? Surely they know the confines of the museum.

Yeah, I could see that coming from a mile off.

But, maybe loosen up on the right and top some? I like it as is, myself.
