Default Contrast issue

Hey everyone, I have a new picture that I cant seen to get right for the database, this being rejected for bad contrast.

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=495272&key=0

I have tried working with this picture in Arcsoft PhotoImpression 5 and when I try and adjust it with the contrast, It either becomes blurry or has way too much noise.

Any suggestions would be nice.

Nathan

It's very, "dry." Everything is flat and gray. You need to boost the contrast level for it to look good.

That image needs a bit of work... can you attach a resized version of the original so we can see what the original looked like? There's so much fuzz and other stuff going on the contrast might be the least of your problems - hopefully it's just your imaging software.

Hre is the original untouched version of this shot. I think the reason it's so dark is because the flash went off by mistake.
