Default Does this look soft?

The number boards look pretty sharp on both of my monitors.

Hmmm...

Not that you need the piling on of support, but no question, not soft.

Ok, perhaps the screener hit the wrong rejection. Milwman might be on to something...

I'd agree, I think the image is a little bit too dark.

They probably screened it right after mine, which was bright enough to make all the snow pop =)

Maybe a little soft but I'd say the levels need to be adjusted and maybe play with the contrast a little bit. I agree with those that said this image looks dark.

Ok, I will resubmit tomorrow morning with it lightened a bit. It's been a while since I processed an image with a snowy scene. Comparing it some of my shots from last winter, I think I can see it needs a little bump. Thanks.

No. I usually don't appeal because then they randomly add your photo to the database later in the day if you win. I like to submit my shots in the morning, and if I get a reject, I'll resubmit the next day in the morning with the proper fixes made.

Thanks. I guess it was worth it to be out on the highway overpass to get that shot.
