Apologies if anything in this sounds harsh, but when I clicked on the link, I instantly thought: "ugh".

I agree with Loyd's comments on the editing. The photo has a washed-out look to it. It...

I agree. Even the lowest-end DSLR or mirrorless camera being sold these days should produce excellent results. Typically, a PIQ results from something we do to it during post-production. Often,...

If you had an older version of Lightroom, it is possible that the raw converter was created before your camera was released......in other words, the old version of Lightroom did not have raw support...

I concur that the 3:5 crop would work much better. I think the foreground is more excessive than the sky in this case. I would start cropping that away first.

I concur on both. Trim the right, maybe add a bit left, and definitely level the train. :wink:

Same Location:

[photoid=779851]

My shot was taken in 2009, so it is more of a "THEN" image, rather than a "NOW", although I have been there as recently as a couple of months ago. Whitehead...

Photos in the queue do have an ID....it's just a different sequence than the photos that are actually in the data base. You should be able to edit a queued photo. I know I have done that within...

Hi Dave,

I don't see any significant noise on my display. I do think the image could use a bit more highlight reduction, as there are a few areas that look overexposed to me. I tend to shoot a...

Hi John,

I hope my original post didn't sound too harsh, but it was just obvious to me that the screen you were working from wasn't giving you a realistic view of your edits. Hey, I edited on a...

The real advantage of a new body is ISO. If the person is only going to shoot on nice, sunny days, an old body might just work fine, but on a cloudy day, an old 40D will never hold a candle to a...

I'll take a different approach than most. I suggest treating yourself to a new camera body before you invest in lenses. That 40D was current in 2008. That's 13 years out of date. Sensors have...

Now looking at the images on a calibrated display, they look very similar to what I see on my phone and on my IPad, which is to say that the halo is yellow near the sun and tapers to...

The number boards do look slightly blurry on my display. They're not bad, but they're just not obviously sharp.....soft is probably a better word. When I am looking at my own locomotive pictures,...

The updated edits are getting closer. The shadow reduction in the second one still looks overdone. Shadows are OK. The goal is to make it look like the eye sees it, which means you should see a...

Yes, and at least on my display, all of them have too much shadow reduction and too much foreground. I think that with a little editing, all of these would be decent images. I have no idea...

I would probably tighten it up all around. The composition is not terrible as it is, but you could stand to lose some real estate on the left, top, bottom and even a tad on the right. Use the...
