Default Polarizer

Hi,

I recieved an Underexposed rejection for this photo:
http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...key=1178618741

Is it because of the polarizing filter's effect on the sky, or otherwise the photo is underexposed two? I have a calibrated TFT display and the flower, the house and the front of the train seems just right to me.

Thank you for your help!

No... the polarizer is fine. It's just that the image is too dark. Lighten it a little in Photoshop, or whatever editing program you use.

The photo looks a bit cluttered as well, in my opinion.

Perhaps that is just me.

And distracting shadows. I think it's a bit too tight.

Yeah, I agree. If he were to shoot a bit more wide, I think it would've been better. Unless he just cropped way too much off.

Thanks for the feedback! Unfortunately 28 mm was the widest I could go and I took this shot from outside the fence just lifting the camera inside.

It's a neat shot, and it could be as easy as brightening it up, and it getting into DB.

Good luck.

PS: fixing other's photos is so much easier than fixing my own.
