Default May I make your eyes bleed?

I'm having trouble with the color in this one. I would probably let it go except for the fact of the 2 "Meadville Names" as stated in my photo remarks.

Here is #1 hit with bad color:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=643314922

Thinking it had too much juice, I drained some and it got hit again with color AND unlevel.
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=612084842

The final rejected correction again hit with color. This one, I bumped the red bar up a slight bit, thinking it may have looked a little too blue. I also made an appeal of sorts in the comment to screener in this one about the verticals being plum on the grid, and the possibility of it appearing unlevel because the loco is on the ladder track, and not one of the runners paralleling in front of me.

Hmmm. I somehow cut the "keys" off when I copied and pasted. OP corrected.

The red in the loco appears extremely oversaturated, but I'm on a laptop.

Way oversaturated, Kevin. I don't think the hues are wrong... I think you just overjuiced.

The red on the locomotive is way too intense, close to clipping. Also, although it's practically not visible on the RP screen, the upper left corner has a touch of false color at the very edge; seems you rotated and cropped a little bit out of the frame.

Just in case it hasn't been mentioned yet, you need to desaturate.

The engine seems a little blurry to me. It is also way over saturated.

Did you use a polarizing lens by chance?

The railheads have a yellowish tint.

Try pressing the "auto correct" key. Your complicating the entire process.

No polarizing lens. Auto correct? Can't explain the yellow tint on the rail heads other than the closest set might be because of rust as they have not seen wheels on them in years as they are severed.

With that said, here's my last attempt. No juice added what-so-ever, no hue adjustment.

I like it better now too. Might I suggest some leveling / distortion correction though?

I think you still need to desaturate a touch, and maybe even lighten it, as it appears slightly underexposed.

Could someone explain to me why this shot looks completely reasonable on one computer and monitor but on the same computer with a different monitor, looks completely oversaturated? I think there is some sort of display setting that I just don't know about and have wrong.

Laptop on laptop screen: fine
Same laptop connected to monitor: oversaturated

Much better, Kevin. When the red is too red and the blue is too blue for my tastes, then I know it's over saturated.



Seriously, nice shot!

It's either bad settings on the external monitor, or user error. Care to guess which way I'm leaning?

The way I see it, those are one and the same!

I should add that this is true only of some images, most are ok. So perhaps an interaction between display settings and some sort of sRGB adobeRGB thing?
