Default Me Again,

Tried fixing this one myself but that didn't work.

What do you folks think? Please keep it to the photo and no other B-S!

Thanks,

Nice shot (I've seen worse get accepted).

But see that razor-thin white glow...especially around the engineer's side of the cab of the lead unit. That's a red flag to screeners. Also if you look at the handrails, you can see the grain.

But I empathize... I've gotten the "poor image quality" rejection a few times. Usually tho, I'm either scanning prints on a flatbed or working from the photo lab's CD.

Also get this rejection when I oversharpen, don't scan at a high enough res, or crop tightly on a small part of the pic and then enlarge to 1024 pixels width.

It looks like you sharpened it one too many times. Go back to the original and submitt that one.

Chris,

What kind of a camera are you shooting with?

What ASA did you have it set at? If it's too high that could be causing the distortion. Just a possibility to consider.

I have the same camera, what setting did you have it on? I've noticed the chrome setting can occasionally result in slight distortion, though it produces superbly saturated colors.

I actually desaturated this image a little.

Yeah, still too much noise. It just looks off overall, almost like it's a bad film scan.

BTW, is ASA the same or similar to ISO? Just curious...

Both, in the film days, ASA and ISO were some what different, but used the same basic standards. In digital they are the same thing, but it's called ISO on most cameras.
