Default Bad color - what am I missing?

Since the weather has mostly been nice this week, I've been going out to grab some shots of the commuter rail after work. I've had pretty good light, except that I've got three in a row rejected for bad color.

The rejects in question can be found here:

http://www.railpictures.net/viewreje...d=721667&key=0

So what am I missing here that the screeners aren't?

They're undercontrasted and undersaturated.

I agree with trainboysd40. I'd say the main issue is contrast. Color might have to be adjusted later.

Speaking of where you took the photos, I may be fanning in Waltham one of the days I'm in Boston, during part of the late afternoon.
