Default Help !

Hi,
IŽve corrected this almost 4 times, according to rejections (cropping, contrast, exposure, leveling, sharpen, etc...)
But, it was rejected, anyway.
Suggestions on how to improve/correct ?

thanks !!

Lucas

Stuff like this is why people hate RP, that is a perfectly acceptable Image IMO. Try changing the width to 1024 instead of 1200 and the height accordingly. The smaller size may get their mind off the soft rejection.

The logo on the front of the lead engine is totally blurry.

You need to fix that.

Additionally, the color is a little flat and you might get the bad contrast rejection too.

That is also presumably fixable.

"totally" blurry? It seems fine to me. Maybe some like things sharper, I know, but I object to the exaggeration.

Lucas, the downsizing to 1024 is a good idea. Personally I think it is fine, but RP does love things quite sharp.

I realize this won't be very popular with some, and bad cropping wasn't part of the original rejection, but to my crazy eyes this crop works better with the scene:

I definitely agree with Jim's crop - and it might head off a potential "bad cropping" rejection. The original isn't bad, but has a bunch of lower left dead space and cuts off the train awkwardly (whereas Jim uses the tree to cut off the train). The rest of the issues seem to be processing ones.

Good luck.

I dont like that crop, I think you can keep more of the scene and still end up with a decent aspect ratio, less sky, and crop to the right of the catenary pole, and then maybe a little off the left side.

To me there was also too much boring sky in the original and lacking a bit in the ROT department.
