Good gentle folk,

Is it just me? The current representative image is ok as far as it goes, but the contrast is cranked waaaaay up. My copy of Traders is nothing like as orange as this. And in this image I can't see the artwork:




A much more accurate box cover image (on my screen) is the one I loaded ages back:



For my mind, the first image looks more striking simply because the contrast is a little overblown. The second image is more accurate and also shows more detail, but it keeps getting rejected as the rep image. Presumably the image modders (who may not personally know the real game cover?) think it's too pale and/or don't like the small amount of glare in the top left corner.

Thoughts anyone?

I notice one box is alea and the other rio grande. Is it possible that the alea really is that orange color?

Both pictures have serious problems from a photographic standpoint.

The first one looks like someone used the Photoshop brightness/contrast adjustment to compensate for an overexposed image. The clipped whites and blacks as well as the high saturation are big giveaways.

The second shot just needs a little work and it'd be fine. Just tweak the levels a bit to adjust the black point and you've got a decent image.
