The building isn't doing much for the shot, and since you have the whole building in the picture, it pushes the power way to the left. Your best bet with this is to crop way down on the right and...

I'll echo what Joe said, Charles nailed it. The picture is too bottom heavy and you have too much empty sky.

The shot is centered vertically and the engine is way to close to the right side of the photo. I would suggest losing some sky and adding some on the right for starters.

There's lots of blown out snow on the bottom and left. Crop those out and see what you get.

I agree with Chris, there just isn't anything special about this shot to overcome the cloudy day.

Hit it with some unsharp mask and that will solve the softness issue.

I noticed this as well. What jumped out at me were small black spots on the Conrail unit that looked like snow flakes turned black.

They appear to have a red-cast to them. Look at the snow it should be white, instead it is reddish. Try to adjust the white balance and that should fix it.

The snow is not prominent enough in your second shot, so it just looks like a cloudy day shot. Also, the image quality is poor, which will also keep it from the database.

When I was there last March, the parking lot was closed off as well, and I didn't want to park by the road, since I'm sure thats frowned upon.

The train is centered in the frame. There is lots of dead space along the bottom, so take that out and place the train in the frame using rule of thirds.

The train is centered vertically in the frame. Use rule of thirds to correct that. However, the nose of the lead engine is very close to the edge of the picture and the outline of the train gets...

Look at the large amounts of sky. It is not blue in one of the pictures, instead it is cyan. Remember photos are not perfect right out of the camera and often need adjustments before uploading.

There is no train, you are standing on the tracks and the image quality is poor. That's why it was rejected.
