Default Bad color

Help on this one, here. I'm more concerned on the color reject than the cropping.

First: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1284866045

Second: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=814617103

Third: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1287627862

The attatched file is what I was thinking.

Less yellow channel should fix the color, lighten and level it while you are at it

Hey Daniel, did you get any shots of the CP Holiday Train when it stopped in Sturtevant on Wednesday night?

Yes, 13 second exposure. I'll work on it. Not such a big deal if it doesn't get on, though, since there is almost the same exact photo on the DB from last year's train.

Working on this one won't help, there's visible camera shake if especially if you look at the LEDs on the top edges of the cars. The blurry numberboards also look to be a bit out of focus. Sorry, you need a better tripod, or some weight hung off the one you have now. Also, be sure to use a remote shutter release, or the camera's self-timer if you don't have a remote.

Yeah I would start by Lightening it then colors as I was thinking colors will fall in line with just lighting it? Who knows but dark will give a deeper colors to start with.
