Multiple rejections are not uncommon here, and those seem pretty on the ball. The first was a little dark, but the issue with the second attempt is as it says, cropping, which is a fixable problem.

Other then states putting money into updating their commuter rail services, and getting federal funds to assist, I haven't heard of any stimulus plans for the railroads. Sadly I think we will bail...

The shots that were accepted are not bad at all. Some as we have said can use a little color work but it isn't hard to learn.

Not bad for starting. Once you have grain with night shots there isn't much you can do to remove it, as noise reduction in photo editing software can cause softness.
