I became curious as to what shade a Cotton Belt caboose should actually be. An image search was no help at all- some were bright red, some were boxcar red!

EDIT: Something I should have noticed...

Well, unfortunately we can't view the original slide directly. But it sure bears more than a little resemblance to my (thankfully few) Ansco and Agfa faded and shifted slides!

Before the image even finished loading, the problem was obvious (IMHO).
It's a color slide that has faded and shifted! Excess red is everywhere. Needs a ton of contrast as well.

Interesting that they chose to currently feature a very dark photo that's super as a weather photo, but with a train way in the dark distance and kind of hard to view without some magnification.

Reduce saturation, reduce contrast, reduce color temp and it's fine! (IMHO, of course!)

I noticed the flare from the lamppost while the photo was loading.
Maybe a somewhat wider view would have impressed the screener?

Yeah, it's leaning right by a good one-half of one percent. Would I have noticed without zooming in 500%? No way! :shock:

They may have better cameras, but they don't have time-travel machines! :twisted:

Other engines look more hulking/muscular but that Big Boy is l-o-n-g!

Just noticed: 4014 has "Big Boy" in chalk on the smokebox front- a nice historic touch!

I used to get upset about RP rejections (about 20% of the total).
Flickr was my place to post the rejects at first. That changed radically once my Flickr views exceeded my RP views. Non-rail shots...

Very high sun, but I think the subject engines' interestingness outweighs that!
They have every right to reject it, but we have every right to like it anyway.

As for sharpening, you can always sharpen a bit more and see how it looks. You can always go back if it looks like too...

I would re-save the photo from another editor such as IrfanView just to be certain. IrfanView alerts you if an extension is incorrect.

Getting rid of all that red helps some, as does reducing the highlights some.
Even so, would the screeners reconsider? Probably not. The ditch lights still overwhelm.

I wonder how far they had to go for more power.
Are any rotaries available in that region?

Everything appears to be leaning to the left except the silo in the extreme distance.

I honestly don't think they will accept it. Is it worth "spending" an appeal on?
