Default Over-exposed?

I don't understand why this shot is considered over-exposed?

Yes, the tops of the cars are bright white, that's how they look, especially when late afternoon sun is shining on them.

I don't see anything washed out in this shot. What do the rest of you think?

It's a bit overexposed. I'd bring it down just a bit to where the railcars as well as the boat aren't super bright.

Nice shot, R. And the best thing about it, it IS fixable. If you have photoshop, it's a quick and simple fix.

Create two layers, then select "multiply" from the drop down menu in the layers palette, and then adjust the opacity of the top layer until the image looks "right" to my eyes. Once it looks ok, combine the two layers and you're good to go.

I agree with Walter, the exposure looks correct now...but it looks like it might need a slight boost of saturation.

I submitted the revised version and it was accepted.
