Default Undersharpend

This photo was hit w/ the big R because it was undersharpend, so I sharpend it a second time, but now it looks to noisey (too much grain)
Have a look

I would for sure try some noise reduction on that one. The crop is also too tight on the nose. I think it is a no go.

You could try selective sharpening to avoid sharpening all of the sky noise.

Alright.

So I'm guessing when they want you to sharpen your image they just want the subject sharpend? Because I'm guessing like you said the sky is a dead giveaway that theres too much noise. This one here was rejected for that reason: http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...&key=918557000

The bad thing is that I think eventually if you fix these issues, they'll suddenly realize there's not enough nose light for their tastes.

Yep, selective sharpening is the best way to bring out your subject and to avoid sharpening unnecessary things. Although Joe did point out another thing. It does seem to be slightly back lit or high sun, which is nearly impossible to get by on RP.

However, if you fix the noise, it is always worth a try.

I agree, it is going to get kicked for the high sun rejection due to the shadow on the nose and the shadows on the plow.

Additionally and don't take this wrong, but this is a really boring image of an NS coal train.

Is there not some other background with some trees or something with some color that you could get behind there to contrast the train against?

NS units are tough because they are so dark and completely lack contrast.

Course, if you know how to deal with that, you can make some really bitchin images using all that black paint.
