Default Another two rejects.

Alright guys, advice, suggestions? It seems like I cannot get anything accepted anymore.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...65&key=2460154
-Overexposed - so I fixed it -------> http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...33&key=7916927
Then its knocked for Backlit, but its not really backlit.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...73&key=9055559
-Bad color - not really sure what for this one.

Thanks for your help guys, I gave up on the last one.

1. Well you went too far on trying to fix it. And it's probably not going to get accepted because there isn't light on the nose. And they'd probably end up giving you a bad cropping for the cars. Its a nice spot. Try again someday if you can.

2. Pretty much anything taken by the light of street lights or yard lights is going to get bad color because that light is going to give whatever it's lighting up that color.

That being said, I'll let someone else tell you if its fixable.

On the first one, you're gooched. No nose light = no fun on RP.

For the second one, use the color adjustment eyedropper on the white part of the engines. This should bring down the color temp a whole lot and make the white parts, well, white.

Your caption on the first one is about the classic car show yet all I see are boring pickups to complement the boring GEVO, pretty much looks like a grab shot while you were walking back to the car.
Second one only way its going to get on is B&W

1. You're in denial.
2. The tree's look like a desert shrub and the sky looks like navy blue socks.

#1 is a no go, #2 needs to be darkened and/or deepened a little. Also, mess with the hue to see if it does anything for your Model Railway shrubs and uniform sock sky.

#1: An overexposed grab shot of a CSX GEVO in a parking lot, and you are surprised it got rejected? Give up on this...

#2: white balance adjustment should fix it

Thanks for your input guys, I thought I had enough light on the side on the first one to get away with the dark nose. Next year at Frog Follies I'm going to try to get a shot with some of the street rods in the show, it was a bit of an after thought this year as many of you have noted. As for the EVWR shot, I think I'll do B&W it looks pretty good in grey scale.

Read the full rejection reason, not just the initial words.

"he image is backlit or doesn't feature enough light on the nose or visible sides of the subject."

The 3835 is shadowed, including at the trucks, which is typically a no-go on RP.

Well I think it looks cool as a B&W but I think the screeners are done with it.
