Jean-Marc, I understand your frustration with the rejection as I see absolutely nothing wrong with the dimly lit nose. It's really irrelevant to the rest of the scene, which I view as quite dramatic with the lighting. But the issue here is not the bright locomotives. A few of us just mentioned toning them down as an "oh, by the way" thing.

Regardless if the locomotives are as bright as your original or toned down a bit in my example above, this shot should have been accepted. But I'm not a screener, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
