Probably the wrong button, the composition is too tight for my tastes.

This could be an interesting image, but the completely blown out skylight just above the locomotive is just too distracting. I fully suspect that's the IQ issue that the screener is raising.

Expose for the highlights, develop for the shadows!

Maybe the original file has enough detail to recover the highlights.

There's one easy way to find out. Take the Highlights slider and pull it all the way back, then look at the histogram. The Highlights action might get the right end of the histogram plot off the right-hand border of the graph, but if that edge is a big vertical line, it's toast. I have a tendency to think it is toast. When I look at the skylights, there's no detail there at all.....not even close.

As I noted earlier, it's too bad. This could be a nice image with some cropping changes, but you have to preserve the highlights when you shoot it. It's almost better to have a little noise in the shadows (if you're shooting Canon ) than no image at all, and that's what you have when the highlights are blown completely to hell.

Seconded on the skylight. I believe this is a fabulous image at heart, but the blown out light in the top right corner from that skylight is just too distracting. It was the first thing I saw before enjoying all the other things this photo has to offer.

Thanks for the comments.One of the major advantages of a museum shot is that not a lot changes,so i think I'll just go back and shoot again.

Or bracket the shot and blend the images in photoshop.
