Default Bad color help

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...8&key=94952769

After two rejections for color, I have no idea on where to go now.

I didn't pay enough attention to the bridge on the leveling, so I have that under control.

Thanks for the help!

That may fix it. It was a hard scene to capture. The depot off frame left has yellow lighting, there's a giant cantilever siginal out of frame right casting a red hue, it's foggy, and there's the locomotive lighting to deal with.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Honestly I think your picture looks better than milwman's. His has an un-naturally yellow hue to it which throws everything off IMHO.

It's a shame the number boards were lit up, that would have helped a lot.

The horizon unlevel is BS as you know. I dont know what it would take to make them accept it, I like it as-is except for the overpoweringly bright number boards, and you cant fix that.

I think so to but that didn't get on so I pulled the sky just left of the tree to gray and everything falls in line.

The actual color looks right to me, I've seen plenty of dusks with that sweet blue tint. Maybe they think the nose should be a bit more saturated? That front number board is really blinding me though.

Thanks to everyone. I don't remember what all I did, but it took several rejections to get here.

Worth the effort? I'm not even sure now..
