Re: PRR covered hoppers colors

So would this account for the hopper car being dark while the guy riding the footboards have a glowing white shirt? I've looked at this pic numerous times. I'm not trying to use it for a painting guide for PRR PS-2's. I'm looking at this as a photo showing that all PRR covered hoppers weren't snow white in color. I know that Kadee caught some flack because of the color choice they made for their offerings.
If I'm reading this correctly then everything to the left of the guy riding the foot boards could have been developed darker than normal. Is that wrong or right in my assumption?

Actually, the dark corners are familiar to anyone who carried an Argus C-2 back in the fifties and sixties... that camera consistently underexposed the corners and ends of a 35mm frame.
