Default Is it really soft?

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=526250&key=0

im not really seeing it. unless i am missing something. the horse on the nose is crisp, i dont see any softness in anythingn else. and you can even read the number of the loco on the back wall of the cab. like i said, maybe i am missing something.

Wow, that thing looks like porcelain. Nice job with the b/w conversion. Sharpen it a tad and resubmit.

A bit of CCW rotation also, please.

Sharpness looks fine to me; ballast looks pretty well defined.

This might be a good time to use some selective sharpening and hit the things that stand out: the headlamp, the numberboards, and maybe the hoses/pilot area. I'd use just a little USM, maybe 35%/0.5/0 and see what it looks like.

Nice photo. I have noticed that with night photos you can get away with WAY more sharpening than normal without introducing any halos.

Ever try sharpening in LAB color (on the lightness channel)? That's a technique to sharpen without getting halos because you're not sharpening color, you're sharpening tonal information only. No halos, no color fringing...

I'm always forgetting to try that! Too many techniques, too little time.

Heres a good one.

i had appealed the original shot and had expected it to get rejected again, so i fixed the issue and resubmitted, and lo and behold the appeal got accepted. D'OH!.

So how do i go about getting the second one deleted?

If it is in the queue, then you can delete it from the queue. Go to Queued Photo Data and there will be a delete option.

Also, if the accepted one is not the leveled one and you would prefer the level one to be in, you can can do Re-Submit Photos from the Member section.

JRM,

What happened was i got the rejection. I looked at it and appealed. Not expecting it to get accepted, i fixed the issue that they saw.

the resubmit got accpeted, then the appeal got accepted. so now i have two of the same picture on the site.

how can i get rid of the appealed one?
