Default Unsharpened reject on selective focus

Any hope?

Trying to take a different look on things. I thought it was interesting...sometimes IC&E can take 2nd class status in Illinois/Iowa railroading, especially with the UP's hottest train rolling through town. With this shot I was trying to give the underdog a chance to show through! Thanks guys.

I think there's hope. I like the shot. I took a swing at editing it. I did some cropping and of course some sharpening.

Thanks guys. I've found the one thing that helps more than any to get photos sharp...an eye exam! I just got back from getting a new prescription, and after looking at the reject from earlier this morning, I saw exactly what the screeners were talking about.

Wow, you really took that rejection personally!

Good job with the shot!
