Default Bad Color, and what to do about it

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=988556&key=0

I don't think its a saturation issue (but I've been wrong before), since I didn't touch the saturation.

So the question is, what to do about the concrete and the underside of the roof that have that pale yellowish color?

It's more of a contrast problem, as I see it. Otherwise....an interesting shot.

boy, that's tough. my only thought is that the yellows look a little greenish. maybe adjust the temperature to account for the artificial lighting??

Not to mention it's leaning to the right.

Cool

Talk about a nit pick. I think the color is about as nice as it can get, well within what should be a "zone of reasonableness" for a photographer to do it the way he likes it. Sure there is yellow, but that is because of the artificial lighting. You want it to look like daylight? But I could see rejecting the picture for poor composition. Not that the composition is really all that poor, but it doesn't balance really well to my eye. Kinda nice to see a BL-2 running around.

For once, I'm gonna have to agree about RP nit picking

First thing I thought to myself upon opening the link was: "Wow, look at the great color depth!" The colors are vibrant and full of depth all around the nose of BL-2. Silky and shiny. Love it. The composition is a bit unbalanced as John stated, but most would see the point and value of including the flag to the bottom right.
