Default Is this noisy?

Got this rejection. I don't see it, but some of you have better eyes and monitors than me for this sort of thing.

The sky looks a bit pixelated on my side and some jagged lines on the straight edges (loco / coach & bridge / bridge supports), with three distinctive fudgy areas under the bridge where the bridge supports begin. I have almost no experience with the scanning of slides (unlike yourself), so just my observations on looking at the rejected photo.

The whether the source of the image is a digital camera or film, the final image is the deciding factor. Based on your observations, I'll let this one go. Thanks.

Does the original image look this way (when the slide is viewed on a projector), or is this a result of poor scanning?

I'm sure Doug will respond, but he had a successful resubmit of the photo this morning

The accepted version looks a bit bland compared to the rejected version, which I prefer.

I like so much of yours(like every one) but this one is a mess. Not sure it is noise but look at all the edges, maybe you blurred parts but couldn't get close, there are ragged edges all over and the car and engine looks funky. Everything has a blur. Not sure what original looked like but can't imagine a slide looking anything like that.

It is quite noisy Doug. Above the locomotive, passenger car, and the dark areas of the bridge are the worst, but the entire image is muddy. Perhaps you can re-scan ?

The screener must have zoomed in. Was the finished image a significant crop from the slide? A new scan might be in order.

Flickr was horrendously slow for several months following the big site revamp a few years ago, but it's much better now.

That, or I've just gotten used to it.
