Default Looking for some input

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=657700&key=0

A couple of my shots have been rejected for overexposure but they look great on my widescreen LCD monitor. The above is one example.
Here is the original out of the camera, no editing shot other than re-size to upload here.
(see attachment)
Late afternoon sun really lit up the units so in the version I submitted I adjusted the gamma down slightly as it looked a bit too bright and I sharpened it slightly. On the software I use on a scale of 1 to 100 I sharpened it by 70.

Definitely fixable, Aleks. Good to see you posting here, too.

A little contrast and some unsharp mask should do the trick.

Jim, looking for a little more help than that. When you look at the original and compare to what I edited how does it look on your screen and what would you do. Sharpen is easy. I can sharpen it more. But the exposure baffles me cause it doesn't look overexposed on my PC. I can reduce gamma a bit or saturation a bit but then it looks underexposed. It could be how my screen is calibrated but when I look at the shot on my laptop it looks good too depending on the angle I view it it can actually be a bit dark.
Chris,
I can try contrast and see how it looks but wouldn't unsharp make it softer?

By the way Jim did you mean posting on the forum or RailPictures with my photos?

This forum (as opposed to rrfan). Tell Kyle his photos have been looking great lately, too.

Sorry I was so vague with my first post. Your attachment looks good to me...did you resubmit yet?
