Default Night shot contrast issues...


I was wondering if you folks could help me work out the contrast / color in this image before I re-submit it?

I've had two go's thus far, and I thought that the second one would do the trick.


I'd love to have this shot added to my railpics page.

EDIT: perhaps some advice on these, as well?

Some look like they are easy fixes.

With the first two, you're gonna have to mess with the white balance. My night shots are landscapey-streaky shots, yard roster shots is something someone else is going to have to help you with, but I can tell you right now, the white balance is messed up.

The CP rail, with the barbed wire. It's too far away I think, and the barbed wire is way too distracting.

The streak shot, easy fix. Up the saturation some. Try it out.

As per above on the first three.
I like the building and the streak. However, there is too much ugly parking lot pavement. The story is about that instead of the train and it's environment.
