I like it - maybe for RP, it's what most bad crops are rejected for - a bit centered. Maybe drop the engine a little lower in the scene.

I would say too much color but I'm a big fan of your stuff. Other than it being a little tight and centered, it's an excellent shot!

Too much electric blue in the sky perhaps? In PSE I went Enhance > Adjust Color > Adjust Hue/Saturation > "Blue" channel > + 4 Lightness, - 10 Saturation: Name:  Cam2.jpg

I may have backed off on the blue a bit too much - made it a bit on the pale side - but that might just be only when comparing it directly to the original. I didn't see the need to tone down the rest of the color in the shot. I like it as is, others may see it differently. You might want to mention in comments to screeners that you were standing on the station platform, just so they don't hit you with PEQ next...

Needs about .5% CCW rotation, too.

WDS, I think your blue is fine and if anything, not knocked down enought!

I am surprised this didn't get a bad angle rejection. RP is generally not fond of the up-the-nose angle. Nothing wrong with it, just an RP preference.

Not a standard 3/4 wedgie - will be rejected for bad, or uninteresting angle such as:


7412 at the Golden Hour by El Roco Photography, on Flickr

Works for me though.

Yup, I see that now Janusz, but only because I haven't looked at the original for a while. Camster, add a bit more lightness to the blues than I first suggested.

Tone down the blue. Also the red and green. And still needs .5% CCW!

Wasted my time and gave the rejection that they should've given me off the bat: bad angle.

Also I levelled it.

Ah well! Thanks for the help, folks.
