Default Bad Color

Hi guys,

I've been contributing a while, but this is the first thread I've started

The majority of my rejections are "bad color". So I'm here to get your opinions.

Appreciated,

Jer

I like the colour, not the angle. Should have let the train come around the curve about a carlength more.

Just a tad too much saturation. Might be a tad over sharpened, esp. left of the train too.

I fear you will get hit with image quality (due to the oversharpening on the left) and high sun on future submissions... although I could be wrong.

It never ceases to amaze what images are rejected compared to some of the humdingers that are accepted.

Colors look good, sharpening is the only problem i see, i dont know where high sun came from.

Looks a little fake too, like you used shadows/highlights a bit too much...

I've gotten away with this shot before. But since, I've switched to shooting RAW and using PSE7, and obviously I'm a long way off from getting it down.

I appreciate the help guys, but i think this one is gonna go down in the books as a personal shot.


Here are the previous, using JPEG and Picasa 3

I'd crop about a inch on the left stop sign on the right take it out and almost
to the ties on the bottom. I think everything else looks good.

So you've already got three shots from this exact spot, with almost identical compositions and train placement...not sure why you'd want another one with a common train. I'd let the rejection go and retire this location.

Bad comparison. San Sebastion River is more like it.
